What does following do?
Following means you are keeping track of another user on the Snap Your Erie Zoo site. Whenever that user uploads a photo of their own, or loves a photo, it will show up on your Activistream. If you find yourself loving a photographer time and time again, it's a good idea to follow them.
How do I follow someone?
On their profile page, at the top, you'll see a follow me button. Click it and you'll keep track of their new photos and loves.
Is there anything else I can follow?
Yes! When you comment on a photo, you'll automatically follow the discussion on the photo. This way, all responses to your comments will show up in your Activistream.
How do I share a photo?
You can share a photo on Facebook and Twitter or via email. On a photo's page, above the photo, enter and email address and press enter to share via email. To share the photo on Twitter, click the "tweet" button. To share with all your friends on Facebook, click the "like" button. To share with specific friends of Facebook, clikc the "send" button.
Why would I want to share a photo?
If you're the photographer the reasons are plentiful. You may want to get the word out about your photography, or you may want to ask friends to vote to help you get published. If you're just a fan of a photo, sharing it is a great way to show friends and family a treasure of a photo you've found.
How do I contact a photographer?
When a photographer signs up they are given the option to allow people to contact them. If they chose to allow it, their contact info will show up on their profile page.
What's a love?
It's a fun way to express how much you're into a photo. It's a nice pat on the back for the photographer, plus it serves as an easy way to bookmark the photo again for later enjoyment. All photos you love are collected on your dashboard.
When should I report a photo?
There are two cases to report a photo: First, if the photo is offensive, please let us know. This is a family-friendly environment so we can't have offensive photos floating around. Second, if a photo is not from the area, go ahead and report it. Please be certain it deserves reporting. If you just "think" it's not from the area, let someone who's sure it's not report it. Thanks for helping out!
How do I subscribe to RSS feeds?
We have a few important RSS feeds you can subscribe to. You'll find photographer RSS feeds on each photographer's profile page. News RSS can be found on the news page.
What is news?
News is how we communicate what's going on with the Snap Your Erie Zoo project. It's a good idea to check the news frequently to read about upcoming publication, featured photographers and photos and other important announcements.
