One of the characteristics of Facebook, an excellent product that has helped people and changed the way they connect with family and friends online: images! Facebook hosts more than 10 billion photos, more than any other site online. The feature creates an easy way for people to share photos and connect family and friends with photos.
If you haven’t started using this feature now would be a good time, photos are a very powerful tool that many people use. “In many ways, Facebook is to photos what YouTube is to videos.”
Here are 3 of the many ways to use the photo feature on Facebook …
You can share the fun, whether you take the photos yourself or find great photos of others, you can post them on your wall so that others can share the fun. My computer scientist Michael Dropkin always shares funny photos and videos with me, I remind him to share the joy and post them on his Facebook wall. They are a way of showing what you care about and a small part of who you are.
When you attend events and attend events, right? Take pictures of the people you know and the speakers, preferably have someone else take your picture with the speaker. Post these images on your Facebook wall and “tag” the other people who appear in them. When you “tag” someone in an image, it will also appear on their wall, a very easy way to share an image with that person. You will not have to send an email or special message to let them know that you have the photos published, it just appears on their wall, how easy is that!
You can also easily share your products on your Facebook page. It’s a fun way to show people the products and services that are available to you.
