Being a good online citizen

This week on the Social Media Driving Licence we’ve learned what it means to be a good online citizen. A good citizen is someone who makes fair use of other people’s work, is someone who respects and gives credit to the original creator. Good citizenship also involves leaving comments on blogs, retweeting or liking posts, sharing the content, spreading the message and helping others to diffuse their work.

This week we also had a chance to explore Flickr and Photopin to source Creative Commons images. I’ve used both before, but Flickr has become my favourite since they made the option to filter CC images easier to use without having to go to the advanced search. Flickr interface isn’t the nicest, it’s quite busy and slow at times, but all worth with the amazing images available.

Then we had a go at PicMonkey, a super easy, super fun online tool to edit images. The beauty of it, it’s not only that it’s cool to use, but the fact that you don’t need to sign in or create an account in order to use it. There are many other similar online tools to manipulate images and create designs, one that I use a lot is LightShot, a desktop and browser application that looks like a free version of Photoshop. And if you want to create amazing posters or any kind of web designs, then you need to try canva.com.
