Heads of State on ThingLink

Can you guess how many heads of state have published or appeared in ThingLink news images? Mexico, United States, Spain, The Vatican, and France, to name a few. Here is how interactive images can enrich governmental communication.

As presidential campaigns and governmental communication transitions to social media, heads of state are taking advantage of new photo sharing tools like ThingLink. The President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto uses ThingLink for summarizing weekly activities in informative photo collages containing links to the government’s website, videos, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Official images of politically important figures are often planned to the smallest detail. Huffington Post tagged an image of His Majesty King Juan Carlos describing the objects in the picture.

President Obama’s campaign team enriched an image of a dinner with the President giving context of the discussion and participants.

Editorial images of political figures can turn into infographics that combine visual and textual information in a new way. El Observador used ThingLink to add quotes from various interviews with Pope Francis, the head of the Vatican State and the Catholic Church.
