I like tumblr, how informal it is and its curatorial spirit.
On a projector screen in a cinema at a festival is my favourite, but in the real world where we mostly watch animation on the small screen probably twitter!
I really like Twitter for mograph community interaction. On Tuesday evenings there is a thing called Mochat, that's pretty cool. https://twitter.com/MotionChat
Instagram works well for me and sometimes Twitter.
I really need to up my SM game. I will look to obtain a Dribbble account soon.
Instagram is my usual posting place (albeit, not quite frequently enough at the moment).
How do people utilise Twitter for animation? I've been a Twitter user for years, but I've never really managed to use it frequently. Is it the best platform to be involved in the mograph community for conversations and news gathering?
Instagram > Twitter > Tumblr. I usually post on Instagram and that cross-posts to the other two.
I see what you mean, the "share" option of Dropbox helps a lot, is sending the video directly to instagram, so you can avoid to downaload it
I really like instagram (and I post animation there daily) but there are some challenges with compression on certain types of content (lots of lines, etc) and it's not always obvious that people will listen with audio so it requires prompting. I find vimeo useful for longer format stuff.
will do, thanks. I'm https://twitter.com/mcjammycustard
I was about to ask if people see Vimeo as a social network.
dm me on twitter with your email address and I'll send you an invite - https://twitter.com/stevekovo
Yeah, makes sense. I think it's actually very similar to how mixed.parts does invites
I like Instagram and Tumblr the most personally! I feel like they are the most suited for what I am posting since I do a lot of gifs/short videos and illustrations. I like Dribbble, Vimeo, and Behance too, but mostly for finished or larger projects.
I believe the more active you are on dribbble the more invites you get as well. I used to use it a lot more and would seem to get invites faster than I could send them out haha
I am good, just asking if there was a process or something. you know?
Yeah I understand, I found it tedious when I was on android, but now it's part of a workflow for me now as I provide content ready for social media. I'm on iphone, so I'm able to airdrop files back and forth
Hey Steve, If you still have one going, then yes please! What details do you need from me?
Gotta ask somebody. They give em out to members once in a while. Once you're in, you eventually get one or two to give out to whoever you want. I've got a few right now. Want one?
I have never understood how to get Dribbble invites. how do you get them?
Do you need a Dribbble invite? I've got some to spare.
I have a Mac, but I don't have an iPhone (because Project Fi is too good to pass up) so I can't just use Airdrop...
I like Dribbble, but I don't get as much reach (naturally) as I do with Twitter and Instagram. I've gotten so much value out of Twitter as a networking platform, and I'm just getting started with Instagram. Although the latter is very annoying to me because it requires me to use my phone without a proper desktop browser. The process of uploading a video to my google drive, downloading on my phone and then posting to Instagram is pretty tedious.
Same with twitter over here.
I've always had a conflicted relationship with tumblr. The more I tried to force myself to find some good in it, the more it felt like the place where your name gets erased from your work. And it's a nightmare to try and navigate- so cluttered with no organization.
I find Instagram works well for me. I find that I can reach more people who are interested in the art/animation content I post. I also like how it's puts relevant content I'm interested in, in my search feed based on previous posts I like/interact with.
I'm trying to get an account on Dribble with no success so I can share with more like minded people. Those who are on Dribble, how does it work for you?
I used to rely on Tumblr so much, I love that weird little place, but after they updated how stuff is found and tagged I find it near impossible to find what I'm looking for.
The same works both ways to as I found a steep drop off in interaction for my work too — people contacting for work etc not just notifications.
I find Twitter works well for me, no idea why!
For me personally I like instagram and tumblr the most for sharing my animation :)
