I can easily send photos from my phone to Facebook, but I don't want all my "friends" to see all these photos. [I have a way to send photos from my computer to the web via an ftp program but...never mind, it's too hard to explain -- well actually it's the server of a bbs I"ve been on since 1990 called ECHO (echonyc.com) -- but that's sort of irrelevant at this point -- but I cannot figure out how to send photos to that server via my phone. That's the issue. Phone --> Web]
SO..What service can I use to send photos to a website where all I have to do is have an e-mail address to send the photos to (same thing as Facebook has) and then I just tell my selected audience the url?
I thought Blogger would be a good thing. I set up a mobile account but it didn't recognize it (after sending me several texts saying that it did recognize it, but then telling me that it couldn't find my mobile blog blah blah blah) so I gave up.
Somebody told me about jux.com but I kept going round and round on their website reading about how wonderful they are, but I didn't want to join without access to SPECIFIC directions about how to send from my mobile phone (which is an LG chocolate touch -- not really a smartphone << important point!) which I couldn't find. Same with tumblr.
If you have a FREE service like one of these to recommend, could you tell me HOW to set up things so I can take a picture with my phone and immediately tell it to send it to -- "the web" -- via e-mail with a little caption I can write on my phone??
I have to say that, as much as I despise Facebook, they make this easy to do (i.e., even I was able to find and follow their directions pretty easily). Please don't tell me to select certain Facebook friends as my audience. The problem is that many of the people I really like who "get" me and my photos and captions are Facebook refuseniks, and I love and respect them for that!
