Photos are total social network bait, and the new iPhone makes it easier to take better photos rife for sharing. The iPhones 8-megapixel camera now has improved HDR capabilities for better color and tone, as well as for reduced blur, according to Apple. And the new panorama feature lets users capture a scene of up to 240 degrees. Photos also can be edited right on the iPhone, and then shared directly from the Photos app via Facebook, Twitter, or Shared Photo Streams. Many companies have had great success in building social community by encouraging users to share photos or even incenting them to do so with contests, and the iPhone 5 just makes it easier for users to share (better) photos.
