Flickr & MySpace
« on: July 19, 2009, 05:54:26 PM »
Afternoon all,

I noticed today that one of my pictures on Flickr had an unusually high view count so had a look at the stats to see where all the views were coming from.

Most of the views track back to two pages on MySpace, but I can't see the image anywhere. One page tracks back to a MySpace users page, the other tracks to an aspx page that contains CSS with the link to my Flickr page and picture.

I'd love to know how and where the shot is being used, does anyone know if MySpace uses Flickr images for backgrounds, profiles etc?

Cheers

Steve

its possible, try going to your pic on flickr, look at all sizes, in the link boxes copy the username and photo id number and google it, you should get at least the link back to your flickr page, but you might also get a link to where it is being used on myspace.

Also give TinEye a try to show you where else it is being used. Their website is http://tineye.com/

Thanks for the suggestions guys, but they didn't get me any closer.

I've ended up registering on MySpace and contacting the user that the Flickr stats track back to.

I'm just intrigued more than anything, I suspect they are using it as a background on one of their MySpace pages via CSS.

Cheers

Steve

Only if TinEye has crawled this site and indexed the photos. As they say on their site this is a slow process due to the cataloguing of the photos that has to be done.

My dog pics on flickr seem to be on all sorts of sites all over the world - some ask some don't. Mostly they link back to flickr so I get all sorts of odd highs when it comes to the number of views. Very ordinary pictures suddenly get loads of viewings. Never sure whether to be pleased or annoyed!

Thats exactly how I am at the moment!! I don't know whether to be pleased that the shot is getting so many views, or annoyed that someone is using the picture on their site without asking.

Whats more frustrating is that I can't actually see the shot on the persons MySpace page\profile at all.

I've even registered with MySpace to look around the users MySpace pages and sent them a message asking how\where they are using the pic but not had a reply.

Ah well......

Cheers

Steve
