The Good

  • Free account
Fotolog is ideal for users who want to create a public discussion for their photos. As a Fotolog user you can post an unlimited amount of pictures to your account. Your followers will easily access your posted photos where they can comment or share your photos. When you upload your photos to Fotolog you have the ability to customize your pictures with basic filters. You can also add a geographical location for the picture, a title, a description, and tags so people can easily find your photo. Here are a few other features:
  • Fast individual picture uploader

  • Unlimited comments
  • Easy share options to link to other social media sites
  • Simple filter options

Fotolog is popular because of the large community feel. Each photo displays the username and the country that the user is posting from. Both free and gold members and post unlimited comments. This way, so you can get feedback from your followers about your photo. Fotolog is designed as an opportunity to share your pictures with the public, if you upgrade to the gold membership Fotolog will actually bring more traffic to your page so more users can see your photography.

The Bad

  • Lack some features
  • Limited security
  • Limited editing tools
Fotolog is a simple photo sharing and social media site. Since their main focus is photo blogging they lack a few perks that competitors have available. Here is what they can improve on:
  • Costs $5 a month to remove ads (become a Gold member)
  • Must be a Gold member to personalize your page
  • Limited security, you can block certain users
  • No photo syncing
  • No multiple file up loader
  • Very mediocre picture editing tools
  • Mobile app is limited to certain countries (Not available in the US)
One of the biggest issues with Fotolog is the Gold membership program. Most competing social media sites don't charge for the removal of advertisements. Another large concern is that Fotolog serves over 200 countries, which means that users comments are in a variety of different languages. This isn't a concern when your browsing your friends profiles; however, when you explore new photos it would be convenient if Fotolog offered a translation button so users can explore new accounts a little easier.

The Bottom Line

We would recommend Fotolog as a legitimate photo blogging site. With the sense of connection and community on the site, you have a lot of opportunity to share and explore new photos. Even though there isn't a mobile app, Fotolog is a great place for you to share photos with a large community of users.
