I would not take someone seriously that only sent me to a facebook page to view their work. Facebook is a great business tool in addition to having a website, it's not meant to be used instead of a website.

If you post photos there, you are granting a release for Facebook to use them.

This is actually incomplete... In December 17th Facebook via Instagram announced changes to it's terms of service to provide Instagram with a perpetual right to sell users' content without payment or notification, and requires the content owner to represent and warrant to Instagram that Instagram's use will not violate any third party rights, including publicity and privacy rights. 

more info here http://asmp.org/articles/press-release- … PHLsWfRSXA

this move is being protested by the
ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers)
PPA (Professional Photographers Association)
NPPA (National Press Photographers Association)
PACA (Picture Archive Council of America)
APA (American Photographic Arts)
and
GAG (Graphic Artists Guild)

In essence, these social media networks want to monetize and generate a revenue stream from sale of member uploaded images to third party entities...

Surprising how so many with "Photographer" profiles responding to this thread there has been little mention of this issue...  but then again this is Mayhem smile   

If you are involved in generating original works of art i.e. creating imagery which in the United States implies an intellectual property right status then it might be germane to better understand the implications of posting materials on either Instagram or Facebook... albeit this will likely be decided in the court system...

As for Facebook?  Funny how many models on Facebook have shared serious issues with Mayhem... a.k.a. they don't want to be associated with a site which caters so heavily to +18 imagery....  Facebook provides a venue that avoids such issues... enough said...

I do have a facebook account....I do have some of my work there (for friends to see)  I would NEVER send a client there or here!.   

I don't take anyone seriously that hasn't at least invested in a website portfolio. It's not expensive.... And don't anyone tell me you can not afford a website while you stop at Starbucks for your latte.... go to happy hour.... Buy cigarettes... just don't...please.

Well,  I stand corrected.  My non interest in Facebook came back to bit me this morning.  My good friend Virginia and I were working on our upcoming shoot.   I had narrowed down the choices for an assistant and what does she do, hits their link to facebook!  Just like that.  She said she can tell in seconds about your personality and background by scanning your facebook book page.  We decided to hire someone because we were able to see this girls behind the scenes untouched photo's.  I have also heard that some prospective employers are now asking for an applicant's password to check out your fb page.  This alone could be another topic  altogether!  So, I am sorry!!!  (Still don't want to join)  R-

as far as screening people....absolutely go to FACEBOOK.  I have an ad running right now for a customer service rep at my store and the first thing I do is go to Facebook.... I look at who the persons friends are, who their significant other is.... what their "likes" are...How they chat among their peers... I eliminate about 50% of my applicants just from their FB pages. You can tell everything you need to know about someone on FB

Tips for job seekers.... Seeking a job outside of the glamour modeling world....

1)  Hide the "I really wanna be a hooker" photos

2) Drunk with my friends photos...hide those too

3) Telling people off in any way shape or form...hide that stuff

4) pictures where you are flipping off the camera... Hide those

5) posts where you are telling off your former employer or co workers.. your realitives...ANYONE... DELETE those

6) anything controversial...religion, politics, etc... at least hide it really well, you have a 50% chance of turning someone off

7) Posts where you found it necessary to use the F bomb...or any language you would not use in an interview.... Get rid of that stuff

8) If your FB is private...make your friends private because people will find your posts on your friends pages.... 

there ya go.... If you're aren't looking for a job outside of the MM modeling world, this doesn't apply to you.

I sense that Facebook is on its way out and deleted my account. I have switched to Google+

That said, I would never make a social network my primary point of contact. I actually determined that the facebook model was bad for my business.


PRIVACY REASONS:
 
‎"Text friends wherever they are. Reach friends on mobile or chat, and know when they see your messages." Can Facebook go one day without a new anti-privacy tweak? So basically the days of receiving a message, looking at it and saying "meh, I'll get back to it when I have time to think about it, or when I'm done doing real work in the real world, or when I'm off the toilet..." those days are not good enough for Facebook. Now the people you're ignoring for a couple of minutes/hours have the luxury of *knowing* it and you can have all the drama that comes when they're offended.  Facebook tweaks its privacy settings left and right, without warning, and without giving a clear way to opt-out.

They also removed the permissions that once existed to allow you to control who sees when you are commenting on a page, photo, or "liking" a post, making it a free-for-all. Also, despite my repeated denials to allow them to use geolocating (a stalker or home-invader's dream) on my posts or to access my mobile, they kept pushing it.

Say you're a business owner, and you are on Facebook to network. You comment on a link or photo of one of your contacts. Then one of your friends starts chatting with you on the page of this person they've never met, making your client feel awkward. Or your competition starts to follow who you are talking to and what is being said to try and take advantage of the network you have built up and weasel their way into your work. Both of these have actually happened to me. It's ripe for poachers. I have even had a couple of awkward moments where I had to apologize for Facebook "friends" (people who had added me through shows rather than people I really knew socially) who overstepped and started responding to my clients posts to request work whenever they saw I had reached out to them.

I have better control over the social/business circles at G+ . I also like the idea that I can reach a broader audience with invites by not restricting myself to only sending to people who are on the platform, like Facebook does. They also fave a far better gallery feature to display work with a mouseover that allows you to view an entire gallery easier, rather than having to slog through clicking multiple images one by one, or navigating backwards to the main gallery. Hangouts allows up to 9 people to video chat at once, and has a lot of potential for project collaborations.

One of the reasons I had been staying with Facebook is the idea of networking, but truth be told, Facebook is a *horrible* venue to do business. I have not gotten a single paying gig through the site that I hadn't already met while out in the real world. In fact, when when contacts did reach me, and did so through Facebook's messages or chat, it was lost under spam and clutter, or in the "hidden" mailbox and garnered nothing but a slower response time and precious business time wasted digging for a message that could have been answered swiftly and kept organized by projects in actual email.  I also couldn't refer back to it after a certain period of time.

I also find that people are more likely to want my labor for free if their primary point of contact is Facebook. The idea that they "know you" because they are a Facebook friend makes some feel entitled to favors, even if you've only met in person a couple of times.

I find that at least for my own business the labor time spent slogging through posts to find something relevant versus the cut in actual production time isn't worth it (especially with the privacy chiseled away and other people in the industry piggybacking on my own labor for their contacts and overstepping business boundaries) . I would rather produce and market more efficiently...and make in-person connections in a more personal and less time-sucky way. Beer is good business.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/0 … 97441.html

I know, I sound like a commercial. But I did my homework before deleting, and I've always been a good trend-spotter. Business is better than ever.

THAT SAID...I still don't use it as a primary contact. It is a supplemental for my actual site. (which I have to get back to redesigning behind the scenes).

For everyone who has a website and no Facebook account, how do you market your website? I've been around long enough to know that just putting a webpage up isn't going to get you any traffic without doing something else. What do you do?

Right! You can get a real nice site for pennies now a days.. there is no excuse! Plus hiring someone to rework a template instead of starting from scratch is Very affordable.

Google/SE. I keep working on SEO. SE trumps everything else.

Pinterest. Im ok with people sharing my work in that manner, I have a sharing permission on my site. I know many get all uppity about it.

All I can say is.. get yourself a Facebook page. It's quicker to update than your average website, it's yet another form of networking and it's completely free.

If you're looking to interface with as many people as possible, it's a no brainer to sign up to all the major (and free) social networking sites if only to have a presence and introduce more places to post your official website url.

The more major sites that host your link the better as far as I'm concerned. It's helps with SEO too.

Personally, I think if you can spare 5 mins a day to check it and post something (your shoot for the day/a preview shot from what you're working on etc) it's worth having the free exposure.

Totally with ya here, I said something along the lines of this in a previous post in this thread. I had this happen quiet a few times on my page.




Posting on MM helps with SEO juts like posting on G+. Facebook is not the be all.. You all will see the decline in time. Blog and work on your own SEO to rank.

However, I know it works for some and you can get business from it. Its not for everyone and I'll say it again its not the be all of social networking. Frankly fb is just going to get worse because they have become really greedy now that is a publicly traded company. Its no longer social media its an ad platform and ads are jammed down your throat. I get they want to make money but its obnoxious.

Let alone fb makes pictures look like crap!

I actually just published an article on this topic

The Makeup of Social Media: 
http://cahootsblog.com/2013/01/15/the-m … ial-media/

I think that it is all about how you use facebook for makeup artistry and how you present it.  Is it a substitute for a website? No, but you can upload pics so easily it can be the best place to view one's most up to date portfolio.

I don't think it's professional for portfolios - but many agencies are telling new models to have a facebook business page or fan page *whatever it's called* with only their model snapshots - headshots - stats, etc. on there.  So they can take a look at them online and I'm sure check out their status to get an idea of how they behave online.  I don't think I'd have that public if it were me.

I don't send people to facebook to look at my work but I accept work booked from facebook.

It's just another platform IMO but I don't send people to MM to view my work either -- that's what my website is for.

I have booked more paid work via facebook than I have MM.

i personally have facebook, but i also have a dedicated website (currently being re-designed) that i direct people to if needed.

i see no fault in using facebook as a medium, much like using flickr, photobucket, 500px, deviantart...these are all just social mediums to help put that persons name into someone elses head. the more you use them, the more likely someone will think of you when showing their friends or looking for a new llama, photographer or H/MUA.

same thing as using MM here as a medium.

A whole lot faster to chat with people on Facebook than to try to do it here. I just had one person who was responding to me every five days at best. Finally got them to add me on Facebook and we had a shoot booked only 45 minutes later from the back and forth FB chat.

Done that three times now in two weeks.

Some people say they won't book people who send them to FB? Odds are better I might not book you if you aren't willing to give me a faster mode of communication.

Let's face it, a lot of people don't check in here very often.

If can't spend the money to do that then you're not ready to play with big boys.I have F/B fan page and don't even use it,because my work speak for its self,I don't need a million likes,I'm not blogger,sorry if this offense anyone...its just my opinion.

agree as I stated before.....  Just wanted to add.... Would you find a doctor, plumber, car repair shop on FB?   Well, maybe some of you would but most people prefer to see that someone is at least established enough to have invested $100.00 and a few days into their business...

This also tells me something about the individual...It tells me they probably have invested zero money into their career and that means poor equipment, poor training....no insurance.....   That's not who I do business with and while my assumptions may be wrong, it would be my assumption just the same

I have plenty of ways people can contact me.  I try to move conversation on MM off here and on to email where it is very easy to communicate quickly.  We each get a record of all the communication and I can attach images, PDF files of a mood board or a model release. 

I also am in possession of a device called a telephone, and a 45 minute text chat can be wrapped up in about 10 minutes when talking.

I have nothing against Facebook as a marketing tool, to market to people on Facebook.  But it should not be a professional's primary means of representing themselves.  I am in the process of building my business Facebook page, but even when complete that's not the link I will share with corporate customers and art directors.

Funny. I get the same impression about people who don't have both.

And yes, email is a good way to communicate too. And my favorite is a phone call or at least texting. But I'm old school and people don't do that as much anymore.

Facebook is very good because you can conglomerate all those like minded people and if they are good about updating their pages (personal or business) then you can see what they are all doing.

I don't have time to load up dozens of separate web pages every day to see if you bothered to blog on it and show off your latest work...which you probably didn't update.

A web page is a business brochure or a store to sell your products. Facebook (and similar social sites) is you proving that you are currently busy and taking your work seriously.

Im with Mary. (I feel like Im stalking you Mary! lol) I always say, if you don't invest in yourself why would anyone else? I'll even move on to the next if your website is a train wreck.

70% of sites I click on are, particularly in this industry and the wedding industry. I swear I want to spam people with me giving a make over!(I do web stuff in the side) Even some web developers.. they can develop but they lack design savvy. ok enough about that thats a whole other topic...

I think dont Star meant she wouldn't communicate through fb ever but dont just send a fb to apply for a gig. Send your website.

FB is unreliable, I want to track convo through my email for anything professional. Fb also does not show your work in its best light either. Connect fb you your website. This thread was never a question of utilizing it to network.

Sand Angel Im going to have to disagree on your last statement. Plenty of professionals work without using SM much or at all. Its not the be all of business. And at times I am that busy where I have no time to post on SM. I find SM to be time consuming without enough return. I spend my time trying to rank my website for all my keywords to page one. Referrals and Google/SE is where I get my return. I had all the social media, played with it for years. Even blew up on the almighty Fb 3 years back but it changed and became useless for me. I deleted most of my SM accounts. The Facebook train was great 3 years ago and now its run its course just like this site has. It suits big business more.

My pictures still float all over fb from people I work with. I get business there with out having to spend time there. All my sessions come with a timeline cover photo and they get net size copies. They go to my website, thats where my pictures look the best, thats where they see more, get info, and traffic going to your site helps drive ranks.

It is unprofessional to use FB as a primary portfolio/contact... But at the same time, it's not hard to create a FB account so you can stay connected. Word of mouth will always be the most effective form of promotion.. Facebook is word of mouth on steroids. Why not use it?

This is my basic stance as well. I usually post my work on my website first and at a minimum post several photos onto Facebook as a teaser with a link back to the better photos on my website. And then I tag everyone I know (if they are in the photos) which means everyone they know will see my work.

Using just one or the other is where the problem can be. Combining them is better. And then you have Pinterest to post watermarked photos from your website...but that's a whole other discussion. lol.

I send people to my facebook. Though I have two different accounts. One is my personal account, and the other is just a fanpage. For me, MM is not worth the extra money to pay a monthly fee. I had VIP for 3 or 4 months. But my area is very small and I couldn't justify it anymore. (the first page of last active users, has people that haven't been activate in months) FB allows me to show off all my work and communicate with people.

I should add, I never get contacted on MM for paid or TF work. Not once! One FB I get probably a few a week. (which for me is good since I'm just starting)

want to show off your pix with/without comments,...
weheart it.com

the more accounts to show your work
the easier for people to find you… via google, bing, yahoo, stumble apon

thus easier to get gigs
therefore easier to pay your bills! big_smile

I'm in the process of watermarking all of my images, but honestly you do what works in your area, in my little neck of the woods Facebook is how i get work... and I'm ok with that smile

I have a facebook "fan" account, but I personally don't find it all that professional. I know tons of MUAs and photographers that JUST use that place of an actual portfolio/website.

With all of the domain websites out there it just seems silly not to have a site for a potential client to view your work. Heck even MM is sufficient enough if you really didn't want to put a lot of time and money into one.

Are you kidding me?  you just brought back a thread from Feb 2013 to increase your friend count? 

If I could figure out how to use my new guide powers I would delete, highlight or whatever I'm allowed to do with this... But I haven't read my instruction manual so I'm just going to jump up and down for now smile
