If you are in Auckland on October 22 and interested in either photography, or social media, or social marketing, don’t miss the following event. I’m sure you won’t regret it — I attented almost all Social Media Club Auckland (#smcakl) meetups during the past 1.5 years and I can truly recommend their monthly panel discussions.
What? Every minute of every day, we share millions of images online. The image is the new visual language of the moment. But by doing so, has privacy become an old-fashioned concept as we become our own gossip columnists, and celebrities bypass the traditional media to become their own press agents?
And with so much noise how do professionals source and sell images when you are one among billions? While we are busy instagramming, pinning, facebooking, and tweeting our daily lives, are we simply creating a commodity for the companies that use facial recognition tech to scan our streets and social media posts to fill big data tanks on how we eat, live, look and think?
Join us as our panel discusses the new distribution models, how to break through the noise, how the social media image frenzy is changing the way we use and share images, and the implications of tracking technology.
