How to use location settings with Twitter in 6 easy steps.


Twitter provides a great app for anyone wishing to capture a photo and its location. Working with just a small group of people armed with modern smart phones, it is possible to capture an entire local area in map based photos within a couple of hours. If you are thinking about using Twitter in this way, it is however important to recognise that not everyone knows how to tweet with their location settings turned on.

We are lauching our new Twitter walkabout features later this spring, but whether you plan to organise a Twitter Walkabout yourself, or whether you are just interested in how geo-located tweets actually work, this blog takes you through a step-by-step approach for adding a location to a tweet from wherever you post it.

After reading this post you'll know exactly how to do this for yourself and also confident to show others.

Planning on the Roof success - try it for yourself !

As you may know the Stickyworld team and Planning in the Pub got together last Sunday to create a Planning on the Roof Party as part of our ongoing Neighbourhood Stickers research funded by Nominet Trust. We are developing the idea of "Twitter Walkabouts" as a new method for engagement professionals to engage more young people in planning discussions. We've spotted this is also a great way to make the use of Stickyworld even more sociable, exciting and interactive and invites participants to engage in creating content together with organisers. This blog gives a run down of the day, and if you are thinking about running your own Twitter Walkabout,get in touch - it's completely free to try out.

Hi there, my name is Lauren and I am the new digital marketing and social media assistant at Stickyworld. I am now just in my second week and they've made me write this blog post! Stickyworld is still a small company (I'm the fifth employee and there are a few part timers), so I guess that's why they have thrown me straight in to the deep end to get on with it! But it's been a great experience for me; I've learnt a lot in such a short period of time and really enjoyed myself.

Introducing "Twitter walkabouts" with a new kind of Stickyworld

The all new Stickyworld will include feature to crowdsource Twitter photos for discussions and locate them in a map if they also include location information.

Stickyworld's product team has been looking at social media channels like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest for some time and imagining how can we integrate them into our engagement platform in a more meaningful way. How for instance can we use these channels to make our own platform more social and fun for participants whilst really helping our engagement customers to save time, engage more widely and get better results.
