Social networking and photography go together like peanut butter and jelly, wouldn't you agree?

These days, there are so many Android smartphones that come equipped with cameras that are powerful enough to capture some seriously professional-looking shots. You'd be crazy to not want to share them with your friends online.

Here are the best Android-friendly social photo sharing apps that allow you to do just that.

Okay, you had to know Instagram was going to be on the list, didn't you? The little vintage photo sharing app that was originally built just for the iPhone has come a long way since its early days.

Android users have been on the Instagram bandwagon for a few years now, and it's definitely one of the best photo sharing apps to be using. You can use it to edit your photos, choose from a variety of filters to apply to them, tag a location to them, tag friends in them and even post in portrait or landscape orientation.

Flickr

Flickr was the original social network for photography lovers, long before mobile devices and Instagram blew up. These days, it's still a wildly popular platform people use to create, store and share albums of their own photos. Every account comes with 1 TB of free space.

The Flickr Android app is absolutely stunning, giving you full control over your photo editing and organization. Don't be shy to start exploring the community side of the app too, where you can browse through other users' albums to discover new photos and interact with them like a real social network.

Moments

Moments is Facebook's very own photo sharing app — one of the many standalone apps that you can use for a specific activity. This app, in particular, is useful for sharing copies of photos with friends that you took using your own device, and vice versa.

The app basically groups your photos based on who's in them and when they were taken. With a single tap, you can send them to the right people who want them too. You also have options to share everything you share or receive from friends directly to Facebook.

Google Photos

Google Photos is more of a powerful storage and organization platform than a social network, but it still offers some great sharing options. You can take advantage of shared albums with other users so everyone can access and share the photos they took (similar to how the Moments app works) and you can instantly share up to 1,500 photos with anyone, no matter what device they're using.

Besides photo sharing, Google also offers users some powerful editing options not just for photos, but for videos too! In addition to that, you can set up automatic backups of all the photos and videos you take on your device so you never have to worry about running out of space.

5
EyeEm

EyeEm is sort of like Instagram for people who are really serious about capturing beautiful photographs. The EyeEm community has 15 million photographers who use the app to share their best works and gain exposure.

If you're a photographer looking to get noticed, EyeEm is the place to be. New and emerging photographers are featured and promoted on a daily basis, and you can even make some money by licensing your photos on the EyeEm Market or other marketplaces like Getty Images.

6
Imgur

Imgur is one of the best and most popular free image sharing platforms on the internet. This app is dominated by silly memes, screenshots, animated GIFs and more fun stuff from the community that will keep you entertained for hours.

With a slick and easy to use layout, the Imgur app looks like a bit like a cross between Pinterest and Instagram. You can go ahead and upload your own photos to be showcased on your profile and use the home feed to browse staff picks, what's popular, awesome stuff, storytime pics and so much more.

7
Foap

Lastly, if you're someone who's really proud of your photos, you may want to consider selling them on Foap — a huge photography marketplace for buyers and sellers. You can create your own portfolio and start attracting buyers who actually want to pay you to use your photos.

Foap also launches missions, which are photography contests for big brands that pay the winners hundreds of dollars. The app is also perfect just to browse and look for a bit of inspiration by exploring other users' profiles, browsing their photos and following them to see more of what they post.
