October 21, 2011 – Get Discovered For Your Skills is a tool that aspiring photographers can use to get discovered and improve their skills. Although the site is aimed at amateur photographers who want to know more about what their followers on various social networks think of the things they post, it can also be used by anyone who posts images online on a regular basis.

If you’ve used Klout to measure your social influence, then you’ll understand from the get-go. The web-app digs down into the photos you’ve posted on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, and Picplz and measures the quality and frequency of the images you’ve shared. will give you a score that falls somewhere between 0 and 100 based on the on the reach, activity, and quality of your photos. This score means very little when looked at out of context, which is why it’s more fun to use if your friends are involved, too. compares your score to the scores of your friends and posts your position on a leaderboard that can be viewed online at any time. You can also see how your scores compare to other users worldwide, or just those people in your home country, by checking out those areas of the site-wide leaderboard.

Users with scores of 60 and above can take part in “Challenges,” where they can compete with friends and followers online. also offers a useful “Insights” tool, which features out all of a person’s photo-related activity online, including the number of uploads, votes, views, a comments that their photos have attracted in the past week or month.

Practical Uses:

  • Find out which of your friends posts the best photos online
  • Strive to post better photos on Twitter to improve your score
  • See which of your photos is attracting the most attention
  • Compare your scores to those of your followers online

Insider Tips:

  • Only users with scores above 60 can take part in ‘challenges’
  • The leaderboard can be broken down by country
  • Users can improve their scores by linking up additional photo accounts
  • Insights graphs can be set up to show activity from the past seven days or 30 days

What we liked:

  • A high score on can be a status symbol in certain groups
  • Friends can compare their scores to determine whose online photos are the best
  • lets people see exactly how many photos they’ve uploaded recently
  • The Insights feature can be useful for businesses with company Twitter accounts

What we didn’t like:

  • only links up with a handful of photo services, and photos that are posted on other services won’t be taken into account
