Geoencode Your Missions On Flickr and Twitter

One of the coolest new features of iSpy 1.1 is the ability to post your missions directly to your favorite social networks. We currently support Facebook, Twitter and Flickr (and are open to more if we get any requests).

Flickr, Twitter, Facebook

We've been testing sharing features for a few months now, but sharing actually got a big update today(yup, less than one week after launch)! Now your Flickr posts and Tweets are geoencoded with your mission's location. This brings a lot more context to your updates by not only telling people what you saw, but where it is directly on Twitter and Flickr!

Here is an example of the first mission geoencoded on twitter and flickr.

To take advantage of this new feature, be sure to opt-in to each services geo-privacy settings. Select "Anyone" on Flickr's geo privacy settings page and "Add a location to your tweets" on your twitter account settings. Privacy is always a concern when sharing your location, so be sure to read each service's privacy statement carefully.

Give the new sharing features a shot next time you create a mission and let us know what you think!
