+Steven Christenson, it would be great if you could email through any problems that you have. (support@fotostat.com)

Sorry about all those emails. I mistakenly forgot to disable it for you. They were the product of trying to make the grouping a little more accurate for you, how is it looking now?

We are ready for launch!

With over 3 million photos tracked, 10500 photos uploaded and over 1000 photographers testing out the service, Fotostat has been battle tested.  It is time for us to step out of beta by releasing our redesigned site.

If you are a photographer who is looking to expand your audience online, track the attention your photos receive, and save a whole lot of time then be sure to head over to the new site at www.fotostat.com and give it a go.

Don't forget to watch the teaser video or take the tour to gain a better understanding of exactly what it is we can do for you.

Thanks for all your support.

+Markos Giannopoulos, thanks for the update.  That's quite confusing as far as Facebook goes, hidden posts in public albums!

Be sure to let us know if there are any further issues.

Fotostat is now monitoring over 1,000,000 photos

The end of each year is often a time for reflection, a time to look back on our accomplishments, our failures and everything in between.  When running a startup you tend to have quite a few data points to work with which makes it that little bit easier.

2012 was a big year for Fotostat, bringing about about massive changes to our codebase, a couple of server upgrades and a new site design.  We invited those that signed up to the mailing list to our closed beta and then finally opened the doors to everyone with an open beta at the end of the year.  One month later and we have hit a few milestones:

Over 500 users have signed up to try the service.

1,000,000 photos are being monitored to help photographers better understand their audience.

1500 photos have been uploaded to multiple networks from within Fotostat.

Like and other startup, Fotostat has not been without problems. As mentioned earlier we have had to upgrade our infrastructure twice throughout the year to accommodate growth, and being a new service there have been many bug reports submitted and completed along the way. 

We are nothing without our users, all of who are currently testers.  Without you we would not have come this far and your support has been tremendous throughout the year.  2013 is going to be amazing and we hope you can all be part of it.

Thankyou for helping us continue making Fotostat THE central hub where photographers can manage their online presence.

To share or not to share, that is the question

Questions every photographer should ask themselves before uploading their next photo.

Check out our latest blog post and be sure to let us know what you think.

It’s 2014 and it seems as though the whole first world has taken up photography, whether it be as a hobbyist, amateur or professional. With the exponential uptake of mobile phones doubling as cameras...

Twitter support added to Fotostat

One of the more common requests we get for +Fotostat is for more networks to be supported.  From the beginning we have tried to prioritise the networks we were supporting by their popularity in an effort to help out as many people as possible, but there has been one glaring omission, Twitter.

With so many photographers utilising the micro-blogging platform it was a hard decision to not include Twitter from the outset.  Around the time Fotostat was moving through beta, there was a lot of controversy surrounding the direction Twitter was taking in relation to developers utilising the service.  Not wanting to implement something and have it shortly taken away I was hesitant to support the service at all.  After much thought and consideration I have now tentatively added Twitter to the growing list of networks.  I'd rather save our users as much time as possible now and deal with any problems that may arise if/when the time comes.

This brings our current supported network count to 9, with Twitter joining Google+, Facebook , Flickr , 500px, Smugmug, Tumblr, WordPress and Instagram.

Please let me know of any networks you would like to see added to the service and we will add it to our list.  This is only the beginning with more social networks, photography communities, blogging platforms and stock photography sites slated to be supported in the future.

Also, feel free to follow us on twitter @ twitter.com/fotostatsocial or head straight to the site @ www.fotost.at

+Randy Pollock, this was a bug and not intended at all, I have rolled out a hotfix and it should work as expected now.

Please let me know if you have any further troubles.
