UM-Flint Social Media Update | June 2011

What’s New

Last month we reported that UM-Flint is on Flickr and promised to have stats to offer soon. We have them! We’re now able to see how many views our photos receive, when we’re getting traffic, and where that traffic is coming from. Here’s a small snapshot of what Flickr gives us.

Flickr Stats


Much like the check-in statistics we get from Foursquare, there’s not a lot of analysis to be done with photo view counts. Perhaps these numbers will be of interest to some nonetheless. You can now expect to see Foursquare and Flickr statistics included in these reports under “Other.”
