There has been increasing growth in Internet photography and videography. Web sites such as Facebook, Google, Yahoo, YouTube and numerous others have provided a platform for individuals to visually share information over the Internet. This information can also contribute in powerful ways to the public’s perception and opinion of an organization. Visual information has the potential to affect, both positively and negatively, the credibility of an organization, its clients and the community.
