I am in the process of updating my Guide to Media Monitoring I wrote back in January of this year. I am planning on including all the new blog search tools and custom RSS watchlists/feed services. There will also be some information about tags, specifically dealing with monitoring tags via Technorati/del.icio.us/Flickr, etc.
The guide is mostly geared towards communicators, but just about any user can learn something from it. Anything you think I should include? Perhaps some service that I might not have heard of? Leave a comment.
InternetNews says that Flickr is set to launch a photo printing service. The article states that only photo books will be available for printing and not individual photos. I would hope that individual photo prints would soon be available but perhaps the economics of small print jobs like that aren’t that great.
Interesting stat from the article:
According to Jupiter Research, 47 percent of consumers don’t print their (digital) photos at all. Although printing is moving from the store to the home, Jupiter says that 10 percent of consumers with computers don’t even have a printer. Sixteen percent of the consumers Jupiter surveyed prefer to share photos via e-mail or the Internet.
I rarely ever print digital photos anymore. I used Ofoto all the time a few years ago, but all the picture-receiving-relatives now have computers.
