drag2share: Snapchat Takes Its Place Among The Photo-Sharing Giants

source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/businessinsider/~3/sLl7eqUkM2Y/snapchat-vies-for-photo-sharing-crown-2013-5

Not surprisingly, Facebook remains the overwhelming leader in photo sharing, with 350 million photos uploaded daily, or 64% of the daily total. But Facebook has 655 million daily active users or DAUs. Given that massive user base, it’s not surprising Facbook retains an edge, even though it isn’t exclusively a photo-oriented service.

ColorSnap Studio Digitally Paints Your House to Help Pick a Good Color

Source: http://lifehacker.com/colorsnap-studio-digitally-paints-your-house-to-help-pi-493838015

iPad: Painting your walls requires a commitment. You have to choose from thousands of colors, figure out how much you’ll actually need, spend hours doing the work, and hope it all turns out well. ColorSnap Studio takes some of the guesswork by digitally painting your walls and calculating what you’ll need to get the job done.

ColorSnap Studio comes with a variety of features, but digitally painting your walls makes the download worthwhile. Choose a color from the color selector, take a photo of the room you want to paint (or use an existing one), and paint the room with your finger. While you won’t get the most precise results with your finger and an iPad screen, ColorSnap Studio intelligently blends the paint color with the wall to show you what to expect should you actually do the job yourself. When you’ve committed to a color, the app can calculate how many cans of paint you’ll need based on a few simple measurements.

You can download ColorSnap Studio right now for your iPad. We’d like to see an Android tablet version and one that works on smartphone, but obviously a larger screen helps when digitally painting a wall.

Facebook Now Lets You Pay To Promote Your Friends’ Posts

Source: http://gizmodo.com/5984359/facebook-now-lets-you-pay-to-promote-your-friends-posts

Facebook Now Lets You Pay To Promote Your Friends' PostsYou can already pay to promote your own Facebook posts, and now you can cough up the cash to promote the content your friends are posting, too.

You don’t even need your friend’s permission, so go forth and dig up all their embarrassing old photos from college. You’ll see a promote button alongside the like, comment and share buttons. So have your credit card handy. Of course more money, means more eyes on a post. There’s just one stipulation—the content can only be viewed by the people your pal shared with in the first place. So don’t think that photo of a keg stand will get out to a wider audience. But it will remind those select people that your friend was a real tank back then. [Facebook via TechCrunch]

See The Difference Between Victoria’s Secret And Dove Models

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/victorias-secret-angels-vs-dove-models-2012-12

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs tomorrow night.

Standards for the show’s models are high. A Victoria’s Secret executive famously told The New York Times that fewer than 100 women in the world would be suitable to walk in the show.

Meanwhile, skincare company Dove has a “real beauty” campaign, using real women instead of models.

A Reddit user posted a photo showing the stark contrast between the two:

You Can Now Search Through Facebook Photos on BingWell here’s a strange little feature that has popped up as a result of Microsoft and Facebook’s alliance: the ability to search through the photos of you and your friends. If you ever wanted to find that one photo a friend posted, but can’t remember what album it was in, but can remember what the caption said, you might find this useful. Plus, it looks nice.

Kodak agrees to sell Gallery online photo service to Shutterfly for $24 million

Source: http://www.engadget.com/2012/03/02/kodak-agrees-to-sell-gallery-online-photo-service-to-shutterfly/

Remember that Kodak Photo Gallery online picture service that we didn’t use? It appears that years of shipping packed-in with the company’s cameras have netted it some 75 million users, making it an asset that now-bankrupt Kodak has agreed to sell off to Shutterfly for $23.8 million. The deal isn’t quite done yet, with Shutterfly’s offer entered as a stalking horse bid while other buyers may also submit proposals before the process is targeted to close in the spring. This is all a part of Kodak’s pivot away from digital cameras and related products as it focuses on enterprise services and desktop printers instead. Under the current agreement, current gallery customers uncomfortable with being shipped off to Shutterfly will be able to opt out and either download their stored pics or buy them on DVDs. Otherwise, their accounts will be transferred in a way that is “preserved, and protected” — that is to say, almost entirely unlike the way they’re handled on iOS and Android.

Read Anonymous Reviews like Graffiti

Source: http://lifehacker.com/5886582/read-anonymous-reviews-like-graffiti

Read Anonymous Reviews Like GraffitiTrolls. They fill the internet with insults, dead-end arguments, and inanity the likes of which we’ve never seen. Or maybe we have. The Guardian’s David Mitchell notes that trolling comments aren’t all that different from graffiti, and should likewise carry no more weight.

More specifically, Mitchell is talking less about trolls as you and I know them and more about anonymous, often inaccurate online reviews. It’s not a bulletproof analogy by any means, but Mitchell’s idea does reframe the way you look at anonymous content in a compelling way:

When you read a bit of graffiti that says something like “Blair is a liar”, you don’t take it as fact. You may, independently, have concluded that it is fact. But you don’t think that the graffiti has provided that information. It is merely evidence that someone, when in possession of a spray can, wished to assert their belief in the millionaire former premier’s mendacity. It is unsubstantiated, anonymous opinion. We understand that instinctively. We need to start routinely applying those instincts to the web.

If you read a review, an opinion, a description or a fact and you don’t know who wrote it then it’s no more reliable than if it were sprayed on a railway bridge. We should always assume the worst so that all those who wish to convince… have an incentive to identify themselves.

The flip side of the coin, of course, is that anonymity is vital to the spread of information on the internet. The important tool to remember, as always, is your skepticism. Without it, you’re letting yourself get all worked up over graffiti. (And we’re not talking Banksy here—or even Hanksy.) Photo remixed from The Awl.

Your Deleted Facebook Photos Still Aren't Really DeletedThree years ago, Ars Technica discovered that when you “deleted” your photos, they were still kept on Facebook’s servers, and anyone with a static URL could still access it. Three years later, Ars Technica revisited the matter and found little has changed. But Facebook says that things will be different…eventually.

Ars Technica’s Jacqui Cheng got Facebook to comment on the matter, they’re developing a new one which will permanently wipe photo off their servers within 45 days of a user “deleting” the photo from the site.

“The systems we used for photo storage a few years ago did not always delete images from content delivery networks in a reasonable period of time even though they were immediately removed from the site,” Facebook spokesperson Frederic Wolens told Ars via e-mail.

Wolens explained that photos remaining online are stuck in a legacy system that was apparently never operating properly, but said the company is working on a new system that will delete the photos in a mere month and a half. For really real this time.

So if there’s some incriminating piece of imagery on Facebook you’re really dying to have removed once and for all, maybe all hope isn’t lost entirely. [Ars Technica]
