Connecting Through Social Media

Social media is all about connecting and the act and process of connecting is wonderfully illustrated by this image featuring two hands coming together in a very spiritual and Michelangelo Sistine Chapel like scene in which their fingers are only separated by an intense burst of light. The background of the image is made up of well over a hundred individual portraits representing "the crowd", tribes and fan bases that are linked together via social media sites on the Internet. I created the image to be used in advertising and editorial offerings for companies and consultants that offer guidance, products and services to those who wish to make the most of social networking.



Social Networking Hands

Hands have always been important symbols of connecting, of reaching out to others, and of solidarity. The hands in this image then become ideal for communicating the concept of connection through social networking. The bright burst of light between the almost touching outstretched fingers of the two hands not only signifies the moment of connection, but also helps separate the hands from the intricate and complex background that is made of of over a hundred faces of social media users.

Links, Likes And Social Media

In the social media world of "links" and "likes" this image offers a quick read and clear message of the bonds that form through social networking. The background faces encompass virtually all races and age groups with both men and women represented. That adds a global nature to the image, one that crosses all barriers of culture and language.  Whether the social interactions become reviews, links or just forum chatter, it can all be visually represented by this photo that is an easy crop to vertical, horizontal or square and that offers copy space.
