4 Best Photo-Sharing Services
Twitter’s one of the most popular online spots to show the world what you’re up to, and over the next few weeks, the popular social site will be introducing a new feature that will make showcasing pictures easier than ever.
Twitter this week announced that it is working closely with the photo-sharing service Photobucket to enable photo-sharing capabilities on its site (and its applications) over the next few weeks. This will allow Twitter users to upload pictures directly to their account, rather than using a link from a third-party hosting service. Furthermore, users can also tag their work, and when doing a search under this tag, they’ll get image matches, along with messages.
But if you’re not a Twitter user or want to keep your tweets and photos separate, try one of the photo-sharing services photos below, many of which offer features that won’t be available on Twitter when its photo-sharing service first rolls out:
Twitgoo -Twitgoo is a reliable photo-sharing tool that allows users to quickly and conveniently upload images to coincide with their Twitter updates. It also chronicles recent public photo postings, so you can click on other pictures that users are sharing. Warning: not all of them are safe for work.
Yfrog - The name yfrog might be familiar to most of you iPhone 4 users. Whenever you upload a photo using the Twitter app, yfrog is used to host most of these photos. It’s a quick and user-friendly photo-sharing program that provides easy access to anything you post, along with suggestions regarding “who’s hoppin’” (or rather, who’s popular) and even showcases celebrity accounts. We always wondered what the Indiana Pacers were up to these days.
Flickr - Flickr has been one of the most popular photo- sharing sites over the past few years, and for good reason. It provides a number of cataloging and photo-altering services, and also offers the option to share with other users. The site, powered by Yahoo!, works fine with most Apple devices, and even provides the option to leave comments for your friends.
Twitpic - Last but definitely not least, there’s Twitpic, which has been around for quite some time, becoming a popular favorite amongst millions of Twitter users. Linking to Twitpic photos is incredibly easy, and you can search through trending options rather easily – though, honestly, we could do without reading about The Situation. (And, for that matter, Jersey Shore in its entirety. Ugh.)
