Photo Sharing


Photo sharing websites allow individuals to upload and share photos.

There are several free photo sharing sites available including Flickr, Pinterest, and Instagram. A full listing can be found on Wikipedia.

The majority of State entities are using Flickr or Pinterest, so this section of WebTools is primarily focused on those services. State entities are encouraged to use services such as these when that service enables them to further reach constituents.
