2) You can create and save photo clouds, to group your favourite photos together and you can share these clouds with your team to spark ideas.
3) You can download the Facebook app that allows you to reflect your status with photo clouds, add your photo cloud to your blog or download a screensaver that changes the images on your screen depending on what other users have been searching for recently (let’s hope that’s safe for work!).
