Posterous Spaces makes photo sharing easy

Posteorous, which initially started out as a blog publishing platform via email, then added a web editor, iPhone and Android apps, and a way to create static pages, has launched a new product called Posterous Spaces. The Posterous website now bills itself as “the easiest way to share safely online” with its public or private space that lets users “share photos, videos, thoughts, or whatever.”

 

 

The new Posterous Spaces offering brings Posterous somewhat out of competition with blogging platforms like Tumblr, and makes it more of a private photo sharing service like Path.

 

Posterous, which can be either private or public, will likely appeal to people interested in setting up private photo sharing groups, because distinct Spaces can be set up for one’s unique social group such as family, school, work and hobbies.   Posterous is also convenient for sharing photos from special events like weddings or graduations.

 

Posterous Spaces is aimed mainly its new mobile application, which will provide a stream of content updates, similar to Facebook’s News feed, that shows updates from the different Spaces the user follows.  The app of course includes the ubiquitous “Like” and comment features.  Founder and CEO of Posterous Spaces, Sachin Agarwal, said the ability to post photos from the app will likely be the reason why most use it.  This feature lets users snap a photo from their  iPhone, quickly geotag it, or choose a prior photo from their album, all without leaving the app.

 

Agarwal said Posterous Spaces is simple to use, and has a clear way to indicate private vs. public spaces.
