Social Network Phone App Photo Syncing

Now more than ever, people are taking pictures. Food, cats, kids, memories, all sorts of things are photographed these days as mementos. People do this as one medium to share their life with others.

More and more social networking sites like Google+, Facebook, and Instagram have recognized the large interest in photo sharing. This has led us to a cool place in the online backup and storage world. Many Social Networking sites can be used to backup your photos through a mobile app that syncs photos from your smart phone to the website.

1. Google+

Google+ was the first to offer a photo sync utility on your mobile device. By default it uploads images privately to your Google+ profile into an album called 'Instant Upload'. From there you can choose to share them or leave them in the folder. It's a great place to store images for later. The one of the great things about this features is that it backs up all of your photos. You never have to worry about syncing your phone to the computer.

Instagram is to thank for the heavy image use on social networks these days. They are a social network 100% photo based. It's a great platform for sharing photos with your friends. It keeps all of your photos but you can not download them from the site.
