I am a newbie here and I am bit interested in graphic design and photography. I have one question: do you think that Flickr is a good way to promote your work? (nothing professional, just a way to have fun). Should I invest my time to do so?
Yep, Flickr drives in you a better exposure as its been a reputed image sharing site for long time. Besides, you could also make your presence in Pinterest, a brand new step in for image and information sharing. These two would be a great go to your work piece.
If I’m not mistaken, one can only upload pictures on Instagram using mobiles phones. Anyway, if your photos are beautiful and interesting, people would likely pin in on Pinterest. Yes, investing time in Flickr is always worth it, specially if you want to become a serious photographer in the long run, you can showcase your photos there.
Definitely! Flickr is free a well. It’s a really user-friendly site. It’s easy to do postings, add descriptions, and stuffs. There are also famous sites like instagram, pinterest (which is really famous these days), and photobucket. There’s also twitter and facebook.
I had a personal photo website/blog before… but I reduced him to a small gallery last year, because I don’t want to spend updating the blog anymore, while I’m updating my Flickr Photostream too.
I was okay with the amount visitors I got, but not with the amount of comments/feedback.
When I post exactly the same photos on my Flickr account, I get a lot less visitors, but a lot more comments/feedback.
For me, the most important is a few comments instead of the quantity of silent visitors.
I even doubt to quit my personal website and only post further on Flickr, that is a community. Why have both?
Maybe I’ll stop my small website too… and only keep my domain name transferring to my Flickr Photostream instead…
No more spending time in updating more than 1 thing…
