Photo Sharing 2.0

Michael Arrington of Tech Crunch loves BubbleShare, a new photo sharing site.

Toronto-based online photo sharing BubbleShare is just wonderful, and ridiculously easy to use. Their interface team deserves a gold star or something, because I don’t think I’ve ever used a site’s full functionality without consulting a single FAQ or other instruction.
The free service allows users to create albums of up to 100 photos each, with a permanent URL for sharing. Photos can be dragged and dropped to change the order, resized and a voice comment can be added. Comments are available for visitors as well as an RSS feed.
The only thing that BubbleShare is missing is photo tagging and tag search.

The site does benefit from a squeaky clean design and user interface, but no tagging seems like more than a minor oversite. Tagging is what made Flickr, Flickr.

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
