Photorank.me is a tool that aspiring photographers can use to get discovered and improve their skills. Although the site is aimed at amateur photographers who want to know more about what their followers on various social networks think of the things they post, it can also be used by anyone who posts images online on a regular basis.
If you’ve used Klout to measure your social influence, then you’ll understand Photorank.me from the get-go. The web-app digs down into the photos you’ve posted on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, and Picplz and measures the quality and frequency of the images you’ve shared. Photorank.me will give you a score that falls somewhere between 0 and 100 based on the on the reach, activity, and quality of your photos. This score means very little when looked at out of context, which is why it’s more fun to use Photorank.me if your friends are involved, too. Photorank.me compares your score to the scores of your friends and posts your position on a leaderboard that can be viewed online at any time. You can also see how your scores compare to other users worldwide, or just those people in your home country, by checking out those areas of the site-wide leaderboard.
Users with scores of 60 and above can take part in Photorank.me “Challenges,” where they can compete with friends and followers online. Photorank.me also offers a useful “Insights” tool, which features out all of a person’s photo-related activity online, including the number of uploads, votes, views, a comments that their photos have attracted in the past week or month.
