It’s that time again…. 🙂
Several topics to discuss this time out – please share and give feedback in the comments!
Facebook Makes a Cool Change
I discovered this little tidbit on allfacebook.com and I think it could have some pretty big implications for how brands interact with their followers on facebook. I think the fact that people can join in conversations on a facebook page with photo attachments is very cool. As you can tell in the above photo by my little avatar I’m logged in as Doug Cohen, I’ve clicked on a photo on Leaf & Berry’s page that we took, and I can include a photo with my comment if I want. We embrace the popularity of photography at all levels and this could bring new opportunities for our peeps to participate in fun and creative ways by attaching their photos. Our wheels are turning… stay tuned and let us know how you have seen this used and what ideas you have.
An About Face… To Event Photography!
As you may know in the past if you asked us if we photograph events our answer would be “no” with a few exceptions. Well that has changed… Ally and I are still not personally looking to be event photographers – we have our obligations as parents on the weekends for starters. However, our fantastic second photographer Angela Bell has proven to be fabulous with events! We tested her out on some informal affairs such as out-of-towner dinners and engagement parties and she did really well. Then she stepped up to a couple bar/bat mitzvahs and she really blew us away! More on this to come but suffice it to say Frameable Faces is indeed now in the event business and we are excited!
Glipho – Another Cool Social Network
I signed up for a Glipho account and you can follow me here. What is Glipho you ask? It’s a social blogging site – a cool way to pull content in from multiple platforms (instagram, twitter, blogger, WordPress etc.) into a very simple blog interface. You can blog on Glipho, make friends, follow and like other blogs and interact with people. I’ve chosen to use it as an outlet for myself as me – Doug, as opposed to another branded Frameable Faces page. Yes I will be posting some FF blog posts there and hopefully bringing more attention and readers back to this blog, but I like to dabble in other topics like music, food, and football and I guest blog elsewhere so I like the idea of this being an outlet for my “personal brand” so to speak. Do you “Gliph”? Let me know if you do!
- A photo definitely made huge news this week with Rolling Stone putting a photo of the surviving Boston Marathon bomber on the cover. Let’s just say this sparked a LOT of controversy and debate as you probably know….
- Detroit made huge news this week with the bankruptcy announcement – I wrote a love letter to “The D” a while back that warrants a repeat link here….
- Scott Bourne has written another buying guide – this time for camera lenses. Anytime he shares this type of info it’s worth bookmarking.
