Shutterfly reveals user data that points to a significant trend in photo sharing behavior: consumers are becoming more private with their images on the Internet.
Here are tips for responsible sharing, no matter where photos are stored:
1. Manage your privacy settings
Before creating a photo sharing site or profile, consider who will be featured in the bulk of your photos and set your privacy settings accordingly.
2. Own it
Carefully read the fine print about photo rights and information sharing.
3. Tag with care
Remember that social networks are public spaces with searchable content, so be mindful of where you post and tag photos. Share sites provide a safe and secure place where families and friends can post and tag photos as much as they want, without sacrificing privacy.
