What's the easiest way for a large group to share smartphones photos?

I was at a party at the weekend and lots of people were taking pictures on their phones (iPhones, Samsungs, HTCs...).

Wondering... what's the easiest way for everyone to put their pictures in one virtual place? All suggestions welcome!

Would you want ALL your pictures going anywhere?
I'd definitely get lynched if all mine did.

That is one silly question :p
You won!

Seriously:
How large a group? How many photos? Photos only for the members of that group, or can the
public 'peek'? Do all members of said group run the same OS on their phones? Is the image quality relevant? Are they all fairly savvy when it comes to the webz and uploads? Etc etc...

Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Tumblr, Picasa, Mega, the noticeboard in Tesco....

I guess since most people seem to have a gmail account, Picasa is an option? Set up a public folder that all can access. Or a Google drive account, or a Dropbox account (though - if it was a big party, a free account with its storage limit mightn't be enough?
So: Flickr (Yahoo) - 1TB free uploads. That should do.

As Jan said, it depends on so many things. If you want more privacy, maybe something like a Whatsapp group-chat could be a good way to share photos among the group.

I guess the OP is looking for a way for EVERY guest to upload ALL their photos so that everyone of the guest has access to ALL photos. That's how I interpreted the query...
So something like Google Drive, Skydrive, Mega or Flickr seems more suitable.
But if it's just about 'meeting up' to show off the best pics, then ...um, whatever :p

Facebook is probably the easiest. Almost everyone has one and all you have to do is after you upload the photos is to choose "Make Shared Album" then add people you want to be allowed to contribute.
