I’m no hipster, HOWEVER, I do like to follow the “trends of the time” when it comes to technology. Also, I’m a communication junky! LOVE to write, love to talk and love to conspire about new ideas!
This is exactly why I thought kapchur.us photography could be a little different than some other photographers.
In a discussion today with the ever lovely Rebecca Lovell of GeekWire, I explained that I loved photographing the tech events because I know so many people at the events! Also, because I connected with the community’s passions in so many different ways. Beyond that, I understand the business advantages to the organizers who start publishing content and photos of the event ASAP! It’s for this one reason that I promise at least a handful of images to be published on Facebook within 24 hours of the event. This keeps your guests engaged in the event and with one another for a few days after it occurs, sometimes even longer!
I always think it’s great to see photos from events after being tagged! It’s a great way to remind myself who I met and whose name I’ve already forgotten! But if the photos go online fast enough and folks start tagging it can be a great reminder of who you met AND who you wanted to meet, but didn’t get a chance to.
For those who don’t like to be tagged on Facebook because of various reasons, please remember to take the precautions to prevent that. Here are some instructions. Other things to keep in mind, if you see photos appear of you that you don’t approve of, feel free to tell the producer of the photos to remove it from Facebook. Most will oblige without question. What if you haven’t set the permissions to prevent you from being tagged, is there a way to remove the tag? YES! Go to the photo and under the photo where you see your name as someone tagged in the photo, hover your cursor over your name. You should see a little box appear above and one option inside that box is “Remove Tag”. This will remove your identity from the photo and will remove that photo from associating with your profile.
I love being ahead of the curve! Hope this gives you some ideas for your Facebook photo management.
