So­cial me­dia is the new photo al­bum

HWM (Philippines) - - Think -

Mo­bile phones have two key ad­van­tages over com­pact cam­eras: They’re al­ways with you, and they al­low you to in­stantly share what­ever images you’ve taken with the largest au­di­ence avail­able – the In­ter­net.

Post­ing on so­cial me­dia has be­come to­day’s equiv­a­lent of print­ing pho­tos to dis­play. So­cial me­dia op­tions are end­less, from Face­book to Tum­blr to In­sta­gram, much faster than wait­ing for prints de­velop, and for the most part, free as well. Af­ter all, the photo is al­ready in your phone and the phone is al­ready con­nected to the In­ter­net, so it’s re­ally a case of press­ing a few but­tons on the screen.
