My e-buddy Jason Hudson is a Toronto-based photographer, all-around interesting guy, and the best Instagram user I know. His photos are engaging, just frequent enough, and always manage to look like, well, Jason's Instagram photos. And his ninety-six thousand followers confirm - he knows what he's talking about.
Jason is offering some of his tips and best practices in his Instagrammar School series (get it?), on his blog.
You Tube user Suzyj87 has just completed months of tattoo sessions to successfully inscribe 152 Facebook friend profile pics onto her right arm.
With the release of The Social Network, we're experiencing a renewed interest in the gold-standard of profile makers. And the single biggest indicator of one's digital personality? The profile pic.
Fast Company has sought to identify and organize the variety of these photos: "Like all art forms, Facebook portraiture has its own lazy tropes—the laptop camera shot, the blue sky background, the blinding flash in a bathroom mirror—but even these thoughtlessly captured snapshots yield unintended insights about their subjects: How is the photo cropped? Can we see the subject's abs? Why is she giving us the finger?"
Hi everyone - After months of being a social networking Luddite and stick-in-the-mud, I've decided something: Twitter's pretty cool.
See, at first, I made the mistake of following people I actually know, and just re-hearing all the things I'm actually present for everyday. But then I realized - there's so much to be learned out there, and Twitter's a great way to experience it. And, if you get connected to the right places, you can access to all sorts of links and content that simply isn't anywhere else.
So, we're gonna try harder - ManMade's Twitter stream won't just be links to blog posts, but will hopefully contain all sorts of extra stuff, projects, how-tos, and inspiration. We'll try to be creative, we'll try to be funny, and we'll try to highlight stuff we think you'll dig on.
So, follow us. Say hi. Give us an @. We'll respond, I promise. More importantly, we can follow you and learn more about what you're interested in, and what you're like in the real world. It'll be fun.
Also, on the networking front, if you're not already hooked in to the ManMade Facebook page, join the family there, too. It's always a good time.
