What is Photorank.me?
A few weeks ago, we wrote about a cool new site called Klout, which takes your public interactions on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and uses this data to give you a score based on your social influence, also known as your “klout score.” A new site called Photorank.me, developed by NYC based photo-share startup Olapic, adopts a similar concept for measuring influence, but instead they use your photo sharing output, the feedback you receive on these photos, and how many people see your photos.
You can also use the data from it to decide which photos from multiple media sources you want to print in a PrintedMemories photo book.
How it Works?
Photorank allows you to sync your Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Instagram, and PicPiz accounts to the site in order to be analyzed and scored. Like Klout, your Photorank has a scoring range of 0 to 100 and places a strong emphasis on your activity in the past 21 days. Reactions to your photos, such as “likes”, favorites and comments, increase your overall score. The overall rank is further broken down into 3 categories: the “reach”, “activity”, and “quality” of your photos. The site also features a worldwide Photorank leaderboard and photo challenge games which can be accessed once you have a rank of 60 or higher.
The rise of sites like Klout and Photorank.me prove that some of us are becoming more aware of and interested in our online influence. The scores provide us with a tool to gauge whether or not the content we share is relevant and appealing to our communities. It will be interesting to see how average social media users and businesses will use their scores to better engage their audience.
