Social media offers a huge variety of ways to stay connected, see new things, and just plain have fun. One of my favorite ways to use social media is to share and view photos on Instagram and Pinterest. Both are free photo sharing apps which can provide hours of enjoyment on your Android smartphone, iPhone or tablet.
For sharing photos and videos of all of life’s special moments, Instagram is the place to go. With over 500 million users worldwide, chances are good your kids or grandkids are already using it, so it’s a terrific way to keep up with what they’re sharing! And not only will it give you a cool place to share pictures with family, you’ll also be able to see amazing things from around the globe!
You can upload photos to Instagram easily using your cellphone, and it includes handy editing features that let you crop your photos, adjust settings like color temperature and contrast, and even add unique filters to turn your snapshots into real works of art.
In your daily online activity, you’ll inevitably find many things that interest you. Pinterest is an organizational tool that allows you collect and organize them for easy reference later on. Then next time you need a gift idea, a recipe or help with a DIY home project, you’ve got a group of things you’ve collected to reference, guide and inspire you! You also get to view and share items with other users who have similar interests, which makes it a truly vibrant social media network.
