It’s been a while in the making but Twitter is now rolling out its own photo sharing service.
Twitter introduces its own photo sharing service
This could spell the beginning of the end for services like Twitpic and Yfrog, unless of course they introduce additional features. Twitter will now allow users to upload photos along with their 140-character long messages. The service can be accessed by clicking on the camera icon which appears when users click on the ‘What’s Happening’ box.
The service, which was initially unveiled in June, is powered by Photobucket, which will be responsible for hosting the images. Users can upload images as big as 3MB in size. Twitter has also noted that addional photo features like Galleries will be available soon. You will be able to continue using third-party upload services like Twitpic and yFrog, and those images will also show up in the upcoming galleries feature. Protected accounts will not display images uploaded through the Twitter photo service to the public. If you’d like instructions on how the new system works, you can visit Twitter’s help topic on the subject.
Our own service, BeeLiked.com currently allows images to be uploaded to Twitpic, but as soon as Twitter lets us, we’ll be looking to add this new functionality.
Let us know what you think. Maybe even tweet us a pic!

The ‘Like’ button is a simple way for an individual to broadcast to their friends that they like something and thus share it with their Facebook friends.
Companies that place a ‘Like’ button on their website are making this act of sharing very easy. Previously, to recommend a website to friends, would have required users to copy a link, write an email and then select who to send it to. One simple click of the ‘Like’ button and this information is broadcasts automatically.
With 27 million people in the UK using Facebook on a daily basis and the average person having 130 Facebook Friends, the ‘Like’ button is probably the best free advertising that a company could ever hope for.
So don’t delay – put that ‘Like’ button on your website.
The best way to share what you like with your friends.
Google processes 92% of all UK web searches, but it is playing catch up with Facebook in the social stakes. ’Google Plus’ is the new social network that Google has been working so hard on building and it is quickly gaining momentum. Within a matter of days of its launch it already had 20 million active users and is growing at a phenomenal rate.
The +1 button is Google’s answer to the ‘Like’ button. The more people that click +1 on a website the higher up the rankings that website will go and the more people that join Google Plus, the more search results will be personalised according to the tastes of their own networks.
If you haven’t yet added a +1 button to your website, do so now.
