Prolific snapper with no real outlet for your photographic proficiency? Then good news! Tuesday saw the launch of Glopho, a unique online photo-sharing service designed specifically to allow anyone to ‘make the news’ with the pictures they take. Now the millions of people with camera-toting Androids (that’ll be everyone, then), be they budding amateur photographers or seasoned pros, can share the moments they capture and let the epic audience they reach decide whether it’s newsworthy or not.
The London riots, that Royal 60th malarkey, or a comedy dog on a skateboard, any pic can be easily and immediately shared via the Glopho website and app and then onwards and upwards through Facebook, Twitter or other any of the other main social-not-working channels, threatening to propel citizen-journalism to dizzying new heights.
The website end of the equation shows photos in a rolling format in simple category windows covering Reality, Locality and Celebrity, alongside the Users’ Choice, Editor’s Choice and Latest images. Pictures carry the photographer’s own description to explain the ‘what, where and when’ of the situation and can be tagged to make them easy to find, whilst users can also personalise their homepage to show their own photos and those of their friends, as well as any other photographers they follow.
Available for download from Google Play, go join the photo-sharing revolution now and see if your camera-nous can make the news!
