James Allsworth, social media manager, commented: “Our old forum had over 20,000 registered users and was a popular tool amongst photographers. We’re keen to build an even stronger community and see this change as the first step. The forum is a great place to get honest advice from real photographers who really understand Alamy. ”
The forum includes a ‘suggestions & ideas’ area to actively encourage contributors to feed back on how the Alamy experience could be improved. Alan Capel, head of content, commented: “We’re known for our honest and transparent communications with contributors and we’ve been looking for ways to actively engage with the people that help make Alamy successful. The message for our contributors is ‘we’re listening’.”
