LSAPS Flickr & Facebook Groups
LSAPS Flickr Group
LSAPS has a dedicated Flickr group where members can post pictures for feedback or comment, or just to show what you are up to. This is an opportunity to show off those images that may never make it into a competition. The LSAPS Flickr Group can be reached via the link below, or from the Social Media link at the bottom of the left column. Full instructions on using Flickr and posting to the group can be found in the pdf below – thanks to David Broughton for preparing this guide.
Members Private Facebook Group
At LSAPS we currently have a Facebook Page. This is a tool which we use mainly to advertise the existence of the Society, signpost visitors to the website and promote certain key events such as PhotoShow. It also allows anyone to message the society with queries on membership and other issues.
A Facebook page does not really allow members to interact on photographic topics so for this reason the Council have approved the creation of a private Facebook group for the sole use of members. Members can post photographs for comment, talk about equipment, talk about technique, discuss recent or future photo walks or anything club or photography related.
You may be familiar with other Facebook groups such as “Look Out In Lytham”, “I love the Lake District!”, “Panasonic G9”, but there are many many more. The new group has now been set up, is already live, and can be accessed here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/3044434412516515.
Things to note about this group are.
- You must be a member of Facebook to use it and you must be over 13.
- Only members will be allowed to join the group.
- Members must provide their membership number to be allowed to join and there may be a delay in this being granted.
- Only Members of the group will be allowed to see any posts or activity on the group.
- If members leave LSAPS they will be removed from the group.
- The group will be moderated, and posts or members may be removed.
If you have concerns about joining Facebook, then there are ways of creating a minimal profile and there are lots of guides on the internet. Facebook provide their own guide pages here: https://www.facebook.com/help/453789191486304.
If you have any queries, then please talk to David Broughton at any of the LSAPS meetings or contact him via the website or the LSAPS Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/lsaps.
