Digging into Downlister | Social Tools Suite
In this installment of the MAC5 Social Tools Suite, we’re talking about a brand new App designed to compliment Instagram!
The online community is filled to the rim with content.
Video, photographs, and literature overflows the internet with variety. However, this trend results in continuous distribution of material between individuals. In short – I use your photos while you share my video. The internet shares and shares and shares again – that is all there is to it.
Copywright is a difficult subject to approach when speaking about online photo content. It seems that the principal of “fair use” dominates the online sharing community. It goes with respect that you may share the majority of images you find online under certain circumstances. For instance, Pinterest is a social media channel with the focus of sharing or “pinning” images and video for all to see. In comparison, Instagram was created to share ones own personal images providing a glimpse over the shoulder, if you will, into our everyday lives.
At the end of the day, the majority of the online community is willing to share personal documents. It seems that companies, photographers, or just your average joe is open to sharing content if credit is given. This trend has created a phenomenon on Social Media.
Previously, with Instagram there was no way to copy or save the images in your newsfeed. That is to say, you couldn’t save them directly on Instagram. You could however, always share that post over to Facebook, making it then free to grab a cropped version via a simple right click.
A new application has been developed with the objective to download an image when the right click option is not supported. Introducing Downlister, the website that allows any Instagram photo to be downloaded for continuous use.
Downlister – who are you?
Things have never been easier. Downlister is the perfect tool for any individual or business who is in need of photo content. It is as easy as copying and pasting a link. As a result, you will find a high quality image or video in your downloads. This tool is fast, easy, and completely free.
Downlister – your purpose.
Exciting social media content is what sells products. There seems to be a common theme between businesses when it comes to social media posts. While opinions vary, the general rule of thumb is said to be 4:1. This means that for every 1 product photograph posted–4 eye capturing images should be posted to contrast the Instagram feed. This is what creates a businesses brand image.
As a result, many companies are in need of social media content. Downlister allows online users to download any image or video that they observe on Instagram. The download will be preserved in its original size and file format. How easy is that!
Downlister – your benefit.
This online program will eliminate the use of low quality image sharing via social media. Downlister has removed the barrier to low quality screen shots. Now is the time to compliment your online community by showing off their photo and video content. Most importantly, be sure to recognize the original creator of your taken content.
Whether you agree with an open community of photo sharing, or object to the overuse of professional content – Downlister is a remarkable new tool that will add variety to social media accounts across the globe.
Credit where credit is due
It should be noted, that while this tool is free to use, it remains of the utmost importance that proper credit be given to the original owner of that image or video content. Take a look at the issue from the other side for a moment, How would you feel if someone took one of your created images and simply passed it off as their own? Not good right? Right ! Many of you may well already be familiar with the DMCA legislation currently in effect in the United States – this is not something you want to fall afoul of.
Bottom line here is give proper credit to the creator of that piece of content wherever possible. You do that, and it’ll be smooth seas ahead.
