ABSTRACT
This article presents information on moblogs, Weblogs that typically feature grainy, low resolution photographs taken with a cell phone camera. People e-mail the images from their phones to a Web site like Fotolog, Plogger, or TextAmerica, where their pictures can be immediately seen and ridiculed by complete strangers. Besides offering instant, if limited, celebrity, moblogs provide a unique form of spontaneous photojournalism. Scanning TextAmerica's 100,000 moblogs is like viewing stills from a home movie shot by John Waters. One can find blogs on virtually any topic at TextAmerica. The Flickr.com is a chat-centered photo-sharing service. Click the site's FlickrLive button to open a Flash-based chat window in the browser, upload images from the personal computer and drag them into a chat room for all to see, or send pictures to Flickr pals. Both TextAmerica and Flickr make picture sharing fun and hip. Their emphasis is more on community than celebrity.
