This one's pretty obvious. It's called “Social Booth” for a reason, right.  If you want to upload to social media from your photo booth, you've come to the right place.  Email, Facebook, Twitter, SMS & Pinterest are all built in and users can upload and share right from the booth. There's also FTP and Smugmug background uploaders for you, the operator to user to send photos to your website or gallery in real time.  No Internet at your event? No problem.  Uploads can be queued offline and sent when your are back online.  Worried about the lines backing up at your booth?  Social Booth integrates seamlessly with Photo Booth Connected to allow you to setup social media kiosks on touchscreen PCs, Windows tablets, iPads or Android tablets.
