how do you share stuff with family/friends - do you facebook-Pinterest

my family/friends insist on using Facebook - I dont like facebook so dont often visit.
They are computer phobic so I cant get them to switch or try Google + or whatever
how do you share photos - interesting links and what your doing with friends/family

I have a similar issue with my parents, fortunately there is a small photo shop in their neighborhood which I email my digital copies to and they print them out and call my parents letting them know they have a pickup.

Re: how do you share stuff with family/friends - do you facebook-Pinterest

I have a Spideroak account with a Private (Secure) Family folder. I just put files in there and email a url to them. They download at their leisure & process how they choose.

For "live" contact we are still testing Linphone & Ekiga; hoping to stay away from Skype. No Facebook or Twitter anywhere in this family.

Re: how do you share stuff with family/friends - do you facebook-Pinterest

definitely not fb, and I hear ya with G+, but that's what I use, so ....

The spideroak option mentioned by @greywolf is pretty interesting.  With minus, dropbox, box.net, skydrive, etc, they all seem to have pretty good sharing options.

Re: how do you share stuff with family/friends - do you facebook-Pinterest

yeah I have a dropbox and spideroak account but that still causes difficulty for some family members!
I really dislike Fbook - theres got to be something else a bit more private and less cluttered. ON the other hand even if I found something would I convince the rest of the family to change - probably not.
Going to have a little look around at things like Path for instance but a bit less corporate looking.
Just heard about familyLeaf - looks a bit like facebook though!
looking at Zurker now - supposed to be community controlled and owned?
Naa - too complicated - Think I'll just let em stick with Fbook

I do email and phone them for not-so-private conversations and only share photos and videos with a usb stick. Nothing online.

Ditto. Everything posted online is no longer ”private”. I have forbidden everybody I know (with a FB account) to post pictures of my daughter, there or anywhere else. I want to keep her out of all that crap for as long as possible.

Well, you could use online-storage when you use encrypted containers. Just hand the ones you want to share with your pasword over a secure connection and you're ready to go.

And using TrueCrypt isn't that hard to learn. I could imagine that if your family-members understand the dangers of exposing private photos on the web they will take that little step.

She is 14 months. And if she ever wants an iPad, she will have to buy it herself!

HA HA she's only 14months - wait till her power of speech increases, she'll soon have you round her little finger.

You have a point, but an iPad she will not have unless she coughs up the money for it herself!

Re: how do you share stuff with family/friends - do you facebook-Pinterest

Still fbookin, tried to get my family and friends to switch over to CrunchBang forums but they're a bunch of noobs. As much as I hate fb, tis the only way to keep up with any of them + bands and local stuff. Green Jelly is playing my town in a couple of weeks; probably wouldn't have found out about it. I could care less about my allegiance to fb, g+, any social network sharing service(?) I use the mobile site for fb which helps decluttering. My profile(3 of them) are pretty phony too.

Re: how do you share stuff with family/friends - do you facebook-Pinterest

For the most part, I dislike social networking. I have accounts on Goodreads, RateYourMusic and assorted forums, but that's it.

Photographs and video are shared either via USB-stick or as email attachments.

Email and ASUS Web Storage.  I'm with R3nCi...I dislike social networking.

I think you should worry more about smart phones.

In my case that's almost impossible... my mom, everytime I speak about learning something different (Linux, for eg.), she's always saying she's too old to learn this or to do that...

There's no more privacy on the internet, so I have no choice but to stick with physical transfers only. tongue
