Tagging and social networking accompanied by photo sharing is booming.
In addition to the three sites mentioned in the comments below, I?ve
found lots of activity in the photo sharing arena. I?m giving you
links to several that are already established but the photo sharing
landscape changes almost daily so you should expect to see new players
come along regularly.
I hope that the links I?ve found will be what you?re looking for.
Please don?t hesitate to ask for clarification if you need anything
All the best.

PHOTO SHARING AND TAGGING
Tag communities on 23
23 is the easiest way to organize, print and share your digital
photos, and it's easy to get started. 23 doesn't even show any
annoying ads and logos with you photos.
What are tags?
Tags are a new way to organize, search and explore photos (yours and
others'). Tags are basically keywords or labels that you can attach to
your photos, to make it easier to find it later, or to help you make
special cross-sections of your photos. You can tag a photo of your
brother and his old Fiat 500 with tags like luigi fiat cars (in this
case 3 tags, but you can put as many or few as you like to your
photos). If you at some point later on wish to find all the photos of
cars in your collection, you can click on the tag 'cars' to get the
photos with that tag. On your tags page you can see all the tags used
on your photos, weighted after how often they're used. This makes for
an easy and fun way to browse your photos.

Photographica ? a community photo journal
your photos + your voice = your story
If you think sharing photos is a pain, then you're not alone. It takes
time to register, fill out a profile, upload and arrange your photos,
and to show them to the folks you care about.
We agree. That's why our service requires no registration, no software
downloads, no postage stamp sized images, and no expensive monthly
subscriptions. We built BubbleShare to make it simple for you to share
your photos and tell your stories.
Just upload your photos, and if you care to, remix them and add
comments or your own voice to them. BubbleShare generates a private
link for your friends and family to view and sends it with one click.
You can even add your album to your blog.

The shoebox is a giant collection of bookmarked photos added from
various sources on the web. Your shoebox is a small subset that you
chose to display.
The shoebox is a system for bookmarking photos that are stored around
the web (e.g. Webshots, Flickr, blogs, other websites). In the future
we plan to allow you to add photos from your hard drive. This feature
will drop the photo in your Webshots>MyPhotos and create a photo
bookmark in the shoebox.

Skype integration, toddler games, favorite recipes, family stories and
bios, trip/vacation maps and powerful photo tagging and search.
Amiglia is in final stages of public beta, and giving away a free year
membership to anyone who signs up during this time.
So, what exactly is Zooomr, anyways?
Started on a late October, 26th in 2005, Zooomr was born to explore
the information inside of photos. It aims to be not merely another
photo sharing service, but something that helps connect people
together through photos.
Perhaps one of the most important features of Zooomr is that it's
localized. With over 15 locales worldwide and growing Zooomr aims to
connect the entire world together in the most seamless manner
One of the interesting features on Zooomr is that Zooomr lets you tag
a photo when you or another Zooomr registered user are in it. These
photos then are attached to your profile and allow you to monitor
photos of you that show up on Zooomr as well as photos of you that
others attach to your profile of you.
Zooomr ! another photo tagging and photo exploration tool, interesting
Zooomr is a photo sharing application focused on helping you explore
photos from the inside out no matter what language you speak.
With Zooomr, photos are no longer just photos ? they are emotions,
ideas, and stories meant to be shared and explored. Zooomr helps you
share them with the world.
We are a group of determined face recognition and text recognition
researchers and engineers who believe it is time for a new type of
photo search that uses technology to look inside and automatically tag
photos. We hope this will revolutionize how people "see" the world.
The Riya vision is to make it easier for people to tell their stories
with their pictures. Our photo search helps you do this.
Riya is more than photo search. Our goal is to help you find every
photo of yourself on the web. We want to help you recover every
moment, every place you?ve been and all of the people you?ve met along
the way. We want to give you the tools to discover your future, every
place you want to go and meet new friends. We will be successful when
we can find every digital photo in the world.
