I like to take a lot of pictures so I often encounter an intimidating backlog of pictures I need to sort through.  Gah – who was that person in this shot again?  Did I send this to my peeps already, or not.  When your mind isn’t operating like a spring chicken, it’s nice to have technology come to the rescue.

Hooray for Viewdle’s Social Camera – the only way to tag friends in your mobile photos and share them instantly with Facebook, Flickr, MMW or email.

Tag photos of friends with your phone

Want to tag photos from your phone? SocialCamera is the only way to tag the mobile photos that you want to send to friends.  SocialCamera works with the Android camera, so you can take photos with built-in, instant tagging. It uses Viewdle’s advanced face recognition technology to identify the people you take photos of the most, and tag them for you.

Automatically share your photos

It only takes 1 click to share your tagged photos with friends through Facebook, Flickr, MMS, or email.  As you take photos, SocialCamera will create a faceprint of your friends, so you can automatically match their social contact info to their picture – your camera will know who to send your photos to.   Sharing photos on Facebook will automatically add them to a new album for your friends to see instantly.

Socialize with your photos

SocialCamera was created to start conversations with the phone on your camera. Faceprints of your friends will let you communicate back and forth, with photos.  Adding a caption to your photo will let you add a message or status to any email, MMS, Facebook post, or Flickr photo you tag.

Apparently, PR execs have the second most stressful job, right behind Commercial Airline Pilots (so much for my recent flying lessons) and right before Senior Corporate Execs.  The reason for the stress in PR is:

Public relations executives are “completely at the mercy of their clients and buyers,” says Tony Lee, noting that their success or failure depends on the actions and decisions of clients, creating a stressful situation because their performance is in many ways out of their hands.

Well, I do agree there are elements that are beyond our control.  For example, today President Obama is at Facebook for a Town Hall event and there are a lot of media in attendance.  If we would have had a client announcement today, it would have been tough to compete with the President for attention.  However, there are many other times when we usher a client announcement to the press and everything goes smoothly and spectacularly.  I guess those are the days that compensate for the stressful days!
