Social media are receiving a great share of interest. Large sites have attracted enormous numbers of users that upload and share digital media such as videos and images but also text as can be found in blogs or wikis. Even though these sites are often well used they may not be the central location where users actually store their content. With regard to photos we rather observe that the personal image collection mainly resides on the own hard disk. However, the sharing of one's own photos reveals much about our photos as well as the social media might well enrich to our personal photos. Consider just the simple fact that you have uploaded a few out of a large set of photos - this would mean that these are very important to me and maybe to others. On the other hand our personal media collections are connected with the experiences shared in the digital social networks - others have been traveling to the same place, taking the same pictures, making similar experiences that can be shared and augment the personal experience. In this presentation, we will share the ideas and approaches of personal photo collections meeting the wisdom of social media.
