Media Sharing

Media sharing refers to the sharing of photos, video, and audio online.  Most social media sites allow for some degree of media sharing, but certain sites are focused almost exclusively around types of media such as photo and video.  The following three sites are examples of some of the more popular media sharing platforms on the web.


Flickr began as a photo sharing site in 2004 and was later acquired by Yahoo in 2005.  Flicker has over 50 million users and currently hosts billions of images and video.  The site allows users to upload and store their photos and video, or share them among a group of friends or the world.  It offers both paid and unpaid accounts and allows users to search for relevant images by tags.


YouTube is the world's largest video sharing site, currently hosting around 500 million users.  Users can upload, share, and comment on videos, as well as subscribe to other user's channels and vote videos up or down.  User-created videos can be tagged and shared with various levels of privacy.  YouTube was created in 2005 and was purchased by Google in 2006.


Vimeo was created in 2004 as a hosting platform for user-created videos and has become immensely popular with amateur and independent filmmakers and musicians alike.  Users can upload and share videos, join like-minded groups, learn better techniques in the community forum, purchase music to use in their videos, and participate in video projects with other users.
