Sharing Flickr Images via Twitter and Facebook

Finding and using images on photo sharing sites like Flickr can offer endless opportunities for educational purposes. See my previous post  for ideas and suggestions. Sharing images on social networks is a great way to have students view them. Here is a quick tutorial for finding and sharing images via Twitter and Facebook.

Hint: First create a Twitter account and/or  Facebook page or group that you can use for teaching.

1.  Go to Flickr. Search for images.

2. Notice the share options that are at the top of the image.

3.  To share on your facebook page, click the FB icon. Next, your share options will open. You can also write a message.

4.  When you are ready, click “Share Link”.

5. To share on Twitter, find your image. Next, click on the “Twitter icon”.

6. The following screen will pop up with the URL for the image already to share. You can add text to the twitter message if you wish. It is that easy!

Give it a try!
