Gerry van der Walt All Authors Leave a Comment


As a part of a blog post I am putting together for next week it would be great if you can take a few seconds and complete the following poll on social media by selecting your favorite three platforms.


[poll id=”3″]


Thanks a lot for your time!  If you selected other please leave a comment with more details.


Make sure to check out the blog next week when I will be looking at the various social media platforms from a photographers point of view.


Until next time.

    I don’t see Twitter as a platform for actually uploading the work, but I do use it to link to the stuff I share on FB and 500px. So I excluded Twitter as a “de facto” platform as I see it as a bridging platform. My top 3: FB, Google+, 500px.

    I post photos to Flickr and use twitter to flag them up to others. Have strong feelings against FB so wont use it. Twitter Ive found to be a great way to network

    Hi all, I have a question about 500px.
    I’ve had that account for a while and occasionally add my pictures but haven’t really browsed the website. I now see that there a market where you have the option to sell your images.. Has anyone got any experience with this? Something that’s worthwile or not?

    I’d say the following:
    500px:        Showcase your work (Public Level)
    Facebook:   Social and Sharing (Personal Level)
    Twitter:       Self Branding, Networking & Engage (Personal & Public)

    And I have yet to get all three platforms up and running for myself!
