We have made available a new feature for journalists that are part of our LinkedIn Early Access Group
Dropbox + Twitter = Newslinn Profile
It enables a journalist to receive photos from anyone directly into their own organised photo library – without having to expose their direct email address, manage FTP details, create shared google doc/dropbox etc.
Users still go through two factor mobile authentication (if they haven’t already) – and photos are validated in real-time – however we don’t restrict photos as much when they are shared directly with a journalist (our rule engine becomes much more like a spam filter).
The Newslinn Profile allows for better photo classification, photo captioning and tagging people that are in the photos – because of which there are more steps involved to make this happen – contrast that to the Newslinn ‘city’ email address where sharing photos is immediate and easily accessible.
Example Newslinn Profile
You can see an example profile here – Newslinn Profiles are Sync’d with your Twitter profile so that there is consistency

There is still some fine-tuning, testing and more features to add onto our Newslinn Profile.
