Okay, I think the selfie-craze has gone too far. The doctors at Clinical Center in Niš, Serbia have recently shocked the public with a set of selfies taken in the middle of a surgery. They proudly posted the photos on their Instagram accounts and caused a massive public outrage on social networks.
Keeping photos off social networks by sending them to a social network? Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? Well, as crazy as it may sound, this is an attempt from Facebook and an Australian government agency to prevent sharing sensitive images without the subject’s permission. The goal is to take action before the nude images are posted online instead of taking them down after they’re already published. All you need to do is send nudes via Facebook… to yourself.
A photo is worth a thousand words, but when you pair the right photo with the right words – you can go viral. A few days ago, former US President Barack Obama tweeted Pete Souza’s photo, along with a quote of Nelson Mandela. The photo, quote, and the message seem to have really reached and touched people. As a result, and the tweet broke all the records with the number of likes and retweets counted in millions.
I’ve only been putting content on my YouTube channel in its current incarnation for a relatively short time. I had a channel years ago that did rather well, but YouTube (and the rest of the web) was a much simpler world back then.
Social networking platforms like Facebook and Twitter had only just launched. Instagram hadn’t even been thought up. There wasn’t really a whole lot of creators out there publicly on the web, either. Today, it’s all very different. So, this is how and why I market my new YouTube content on social media.
You must remember the recognizable photo of a smiling man named Tom, who was your no. 1 friend on MySpace. In 2005, News Corporation bought MySpace for the incredible $580 million, and in 2009 Tom left the company. Even if you haven’t been wondering what on earth he is doing now, you’ll still find the answer interesting – he’s turned to photography.
“MySpace Tom,” or Tom Anderson as he’s known in the real world, discovered his passion for photography shortly after retiring. From 2011, he’s been traveling the world and taking photos that are truly stunning!
Whether you’re a photographer or videographer, there are many ways to make money from your work.

After all, we all use social networks, so why not put it to best possible use and start gaining clients through them?
Instagram will soon show the newest feature, in an attempt to resolve the issue of “sensitive content.” A few days from now, what people report as the “sensitive” post will appear blurred and you’ll have to manually uncover it by tapping it. It seems useful, but there are some points to discuss. Will this raise the level of censorship on Instagram? And who can tell what’s “sensitive” and what isn’t?
What I’m getting at is that the internet is most likely the course of your impotence when it comes to productivity. How many people pick up their smartphones and check something online or in an app in the morning. Instead of picking up a camera and getting a sunrise. I bet 99% of us look at a smartphone before anything else in the morning. If only your first thought out of bed was what photo will I capture today, think about how much more you would achieve.
