"1. We want to help people make their content available to the people who matter to theminltokxyzkdtnhgns">"1. We want to help people make their content available to the people who matter to them.

Maybe they want to keep a blog of moments captured on their cameraphone, or maybe they want to show off their best pictures or video to the whole world in a bid for web celebrity. Or maybe they want to securely and privately share photos of their kids with their family across the country. Flickr makes all these things possible and more!

To do this, we want to get photos and video into and out of the system in as many ways as we can: from the web, from mobile devices, from the users' home computers and from whatever software they are using to manage their content. And we want to be able to push them out in as many ways as possible: on the Flickr website, in RSS feeds, by email, by posting to outside blogs or ways we haven't thought of yet. What else are we going to use those smart refrigerators for?

Flickr is the WD-40 that makes it easy to get photos or video from one person to another in whatever way they want.

2.We want to enable new ways of organizing photos and video.

Once you make the switch to digital, it is all too easy to get overwhelmed with the sheer number of photos you take or videos you shoot with that itchy trigger finger. Albums, the principal way people go about organizing things today, are great -- until you get to 20 or 30 or 50 of them. They worked in the days of getting rolls of film developed, but the "album" metaphor is in desperate need of a Florida condo and full retirement.

Part of the solution is to make the process of organizing photos or videos collaborative. In Flickr, you can give your friends, family, and other contacts permission to organize your stuff - not just to add comments, but also notes and tags. People like to ooh and ahh, laugh and cry, make wisecracks when sharing photos and videos. Why not give them the ability to do this when they look at them over the internet? And as all this info accretes as metadata, you can find things so much easier later on, since all this info is also searchable."

Bubbleshare is a simlar product to that of Flickr and Photobucket.On bubbleshare.com the creators emphazie how easy and fun it is to use. Also it is a free website. They understand how hard it can be to share photos with relatives and friends thoughout the country.

"Toronto-based online photo sharing BubbleShare is just wonderful, and ridiculously easy to use." This satement cam from Michael Arrington's Tech Crunch reveiw. He raves how easy it is to use and how they creators should be awarded for their website. He also talks about one feature that is pretty uncommon for photo sharing sites, which is the multple uploader. This allows you to upload many photos at once.

Bubbleshare looks like a rip off of Flickr at first sight. But bubbleshare offers a few more features. One feature is the lack of a sign up process. You can share photos by simply supplying and e-mail address. Also bubbleshare allows you to add voice, create slideshows, and add funky text/speech bubbles.

Are you able to incorporate a PowerPoint Presentation with BubbleShare?

Yes! With BubbleShare, it allows you to use a PowerPoint. Ewan McIntosh was surprised that he hadn't used a PowerPoint presentation with BubbleShare before. "It's basically a way of sharing pictures and text in a web slideshow type of way. Could be great for allowing students to get an overview of their work. It's a bit like an online version of Microsoft's Photo Story 3." Many of the comments made about PowerPoint within BubbleShare seem to be very positive and act like it is easy to use.

Flickr - almost certainly the best online photo management and sharing application in the world - has two main goals:

*1.*We want to help people make their content available to the people who matter to them.

Maybe they want to keep a blog of moments captured on their camera phone, or maybe they want to show off their best pictures or video to the whole world in a bid for web celebrity. Or maybe they want to securely and privately share photos of their kids with their family across the country. Flickr makes all these things possible and more!

To do this, we want to get photos and video into and out of the system in as many ways as we can: from the web, from mobile devices, from the users' home computers and from whatever software they are using to manage their content. And we want to be able to push them out in as many ways as possible: on the Flickr website, in RSS feeds, by email, by posting to outside blogs or ways we haven't thought of yet.

How is BubbleShare similar with other Web 2.0 applications.

BubbleShare is very similar to other photo sharing sites. These applications allow you to share your photos with your friends and families. Also it allows you to group them in albums, so photos from biology do not get mixed up with pictures from Advanced health. All of these applications have some type of comment boxes or some type of feedback medium that you can give these photos. Whether you enjoy a scene from nature, or you are curious with what the student took a picture of, you can communicate through the applications.
