Santa Clara, July 3, 2006 - PictureTrail,
a popular photo sharing website, today announced the release
of a full range of social networking options. In addition
to a complete photo sharing portal - from slideshows to image
editing to prints - the service now offers the most popular
social networking options.
PictureTrail's new member profile pages
include fields for member's personal information and interests,
featured photos and friends areas.
Social networking is all about community
interaction," said Val D'Souza, president of PictureTrail.
"So in addition to the guestbooks, pic comments and "invite-a-friend'
features of our photo sharing options, we've added new features."
These new features include member messages, blogs, notice
boards and a search function for finding other members based
on varied criteria.
The portal also offers a complete clubs
area, and already bustling forums pages. Another feature is
the music selector, which offers over 700 songs from up and
coming artists with album and band info.
"Most online community members employ the
features of a photo sharing website to edit and organize imagery
for their social networking accounts," said D'Souza. "They
also usually link their social networking accounts back to
their photo sharing sites. Now we offer the best of both worlds
together in one account."
When combining existing services, fluidity
of member and visitor experience can become complicated. But
PictureTrail has integrated these popular social networking
options into its existing photo sharing system. The company
also spent months quality assurance testing user experience.
This has ensured that members and visitors now have intuitive
access to all account designing and viewing options.
