Online Photo Sharing in Plain English: Common Craft

You’ve probably seen this already, but it’s so good that they deserve every post they get. The Common Craft show, which dumbs down social media so everyone can do it, offers a video today on online photo sharing.

The point of this is to provide motivation to share photos online. It markets Flickr so well, you’d think they’d put this on their homepage, especially since it barely mentions anyone else.

The one downside here is that while it might motivate people to share photos digitally, it doesn’t acknowledge how daunting it can be. My father, for instance, will readily share photos on Google’s Picasa Web since he already uses Picasa, but I wouldn’t recommend Flickr to him. (If you are on Flickr, connect with me on my Flickr page and we can be friends there. Yay.)
