web technologies images
- October 14, 2021
One of the many things that have come out of our technology evolution has been the ability to take all those images we post online and make them available for anyone to use. Whether you take a picture at Costco, take a picture at the grocery store, or take a picture of a friend, you can just drag and drop the image into your site and make it accessible. It is very easy to do but also very powerful.
The problem with taking pictures of photos is that they are typically not shared with the public. Of course, we don’t want to share any of our images with the public and that is why we don’t publish our images. However, we can put them on our website and make them available to the public to use. The problem with that is the way Flickr, Facebook, MySpace, and other social networking sites like these work.
Flickr, MySpace, and Facebook do not allow the public to make “public” images from their site. So in effect, a picture is not available to the public unless it is shared with the person or entity who owns the picture. If you have a picture of your dog or cat that is available to the public, you can put that picture on your website, and anyone can see only that picture.
So, it’s like those public forums and web groups you find in your own community that have a certain limit on the amount of people who can see them, but you don’t have that limit on your own website. You can put some images in your Flickr account, and if people make a profile, they can see those images but only if they have the option of doing so.
It helps to think about the limitations of your social network. For example, if you have a picture of your dog, you will have to make a profile about that picture. But if other people are going to see your pictures, then you are limited to people with profiles. That doesn’t mean that you can’t have a picture of your cat on your website, but you will probably need to be more clear about what you are trying to achieve by doing this.
This is precisely how most websites work. If you have a profile on Facebook, then anyone can see that profile. But other people don’t have profiles on Facebook, so they can’t see your picture. One of the reasons we’re trying to change this so that people can see each other’s pictures.
Some people believe that if you have a picture of your cat on your website, then you’re limiting your appeal to cats. But this is not true. I have a picture of my cat on every page on my website, and as a result I see that picture a lot on my search results.
People use pictures to show off their personality and make themselves stand out. They have a picture of their cat on their profile page, and the more your picture is out there, the more people see it. The picture also can increase interest in a person’s page, as the more people see it, the more they view your profile, as well. Not only does this make your profile more searchable, it also makes your page more visible to others, as well.
The only way to truly improve search results is to put your picture out there.
I’m not saying that to be mean. It’s just a simple fact of human nature. People want to be found.
