  • Profile- and connections-based – Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn
  • Media sharing – Flickr, Instagram, YouTube, Vimeo, Pinterest
  • Blogging – long posts – Blogger, WordPress
  • Microblogging – short posts – Twitter, Tumblr
  • Forums – interest-based

  • Take pictures and apply different effects
  • Automatic sharing to Facebook, Twitter, etc.
  • Picture sharing
  • Captions with Hashtags

Hashtag: word or phrase after the “#” sign. Meant as a way to tag posts so that you can search the stream. For example:

#Timbers #ftw #ilovepdx

  • You can follow people
  • You can comment on or like (heart) their pictures
