Originally data from the use of ¬†Hootsuite and Tweetdeck were used as examples, but the data was later withdrawn. There’s been no follow up to explain why.

If you use a third party App, you might like to run a little experiment or two of your own to check the efficacy of your campaigns.

New Facebook full screen pictures and Copyright information handling

facebook-48  iconWhile we wait for the long overdue new Flickr interface, has anyone noticed you can now view your Facebook pictures full screen? There’s a subtle little icon in the top right of your pictures when you hover over them.

Another recent Facebook innovation that may have gone unnoticed is the automatic inclusion of any copyright information embedded in the picture files you upload. Most people won’t have copyright information buried in their pictures but if you do it appears in the image description. For once it’s a Facebook change that’s good.
