Intro

The concept behind FrameOn is simple: it’s all about keeping control over who can see the photos you share online. Social networking sites are good for sharing photos, but it’s hard to prevent everyone you know from seeing them. Instead, FrameOn allows you to create groups from your contacts, and when you upload photos you can choose which groups will see each.

It’s also a portfolio site, allowing you to upload public images, and to browse and rate pictures taken by others. FrameOn feels like a tool that’s in its infancy, and to use it properly you’d need to persuade your friends to sign up.

Still, it’s easy to see how for some purposes – such as snaps from your travels – it would be a brilliant way to keep friends and family in the loop without resorting to the very public domain Facebook can be.
