Best chiperoni.ch snapshot of 2016?

Another year has passed. And it’s time to look at my photos and select a snapshot per month.

My photo selection skills are influenced by memories, rather than the photo’s quality alone.

The method:
I quickly scan through my photos on a per month basis and select a photo based on number of views, personal taste, or memories or a mixture of all three.

Referral traffic from social media has dropped

I saw this Bufferapp article on declining social media traffic.

We’ve lost nearly half our social referral traffic in the last year

I say. No wonder. Everybody is online, creating tonnes of content. Most people are too busy to read, let alone follow so many data streams.

Many web pages don’t get any traffic at all. A few sites get all the traffic.

Interesting read. I recommend reading it.

My tip: don’t share or comment on articles that you haven’t read. Even bots can do that. Be human.

And. If you do like an article? Comment, share and write a blog post on it.

If you’re on Facebook and want to see better content, I recommend following Robert Scoble’s advice. The filtering is improving. And this week’s announcement on Facebook Search means we may have a viable alternative to Google Search. At some point in the future.

Lucky chiperoni.ch. It doesn’t need to grow traffic.

Have a look at my photos on Flickr.

Best snapshot of 2013

The question is:
How do I find the best Chiperoni snapshot of 2013?

My most productive month on Flickr in 2013 was May. Least productive – at least in terms of uploads – was August.

Here’s a quick review of my year on Flickr:

501 members in the Malawi Flickr group! http://bit.ly/1bfP07I

Awesome.

The Malawi Flickr group silently crossed the 500 member mark.

If you’re living in Malawi and have access to enough bandwidth, get the Flickr app ( Android | iOS ) and post everyday scenes to the group. Show what life in Malawi is like.

If you’re travelling to Malawi, share your best and favourite snapshots of your holidays in Malawi.

If you’re a professional photographer, we’d love to see how you see the warm heart of Africa.
