  11. The new one in the field is http://tweetube.com. You can share up to 10 pictures with one link! Also, tracks views. You can email from any mobile phone.

  12. I’ve been trying to find a solution that will allow for my members to snap a pic with their mobile device and upload it to a particular forum in my vBulletin software. Unfortunately, vBulletin cannot do it automatically without modifying the software.

    Do any of these services offer a “feed” with pictures where I could simply pull the RSS feed into one of my forums and then simply moderate it and post it when I’m ready to show it?

    Any thoughts of maybe working this a smarter way?
