I am on EyeEm

I don’t get excited about apps and programs that often, but EyeEm got me.

Yesterday we had a bit of fun with that at the Twingly office. Via the Android or iPhone app you can either take pictures directly and post these. You can also upload some from your mobile phone. If you are using EyeEm via your notebook, you can also upload pictures from there. And then publish them as well on Facebook, Twitter, connect with Foursquare even to the locations with which you can tag your pics.

Like on other social platforms, you can easily follow other users and their photo streams. You can fav and tweet their pics (or your own ones) – and – really cool – you can post a reel with pictures on your blog via a widget. You should be able to at least – I haven’t figured out how. When I try to use the embed code, I only get the link to the pics, but no slide show. That might be due to some settings here on the blog, though.

Anyway, let me post the links to the streams then at least!

So these are my pics:

These are the ones of the peeps I follow:

And these are some for a certain location – London in this case:

So yes, you can follow certain topics as well, not just users!

Anton and I played with it yesterday – this is the Twingly-EyeEm-phoo-stream. Which will hopefully grow once all colleagues are back from holidays.

And if you want to know how other people have it at work, then maybe flick through this stream:

And what have you discovered so far ?

  1. Hey!

    We’re glad you like EyeEm. And we loved your photos, seems like you have some fun people over at Twingly!

    I just looked into the slideshow functionality, and it seems to be working properly. You just need to copy-paste the embed code from the vibe (stream) page, instead of the direct link to the flash slideshow, just like you would a youtube video.


  2. AH, now that I posted it, I see the problem. WordPress is stripping all the embed code and just leaving the url there (see my last post!), so you should paste the code from the html and not the wysiwyg tab of your editor!

  3. Hey ramz,

    Thanks a lot for your answer and advice! What I tried was actually grabbing the embed code that comes up in that extra tooltip when you press “embed”. I wrote the post in the HTML mode (not the wysiwyg one), using embed eyeem which usually works fine with i.e. youtube, like you said. But then exactly what you also experienced happens. So if I work with eyeem – what code should I use there? Might it have to do something with flash that might not be compatible? Maybe I have to adjust something in my wordpress settings?



  4. Could that just be because of a wordpress spam plugin/filter that doesn’t allow embeds from unknown sources? I can’t think of any other reason…

  5. Probably! Using Akismet. Will check that. Had that with an embed code from another website some time ago as well, so I don’t think either that it has something to do with your code. I reckon it does work for other people, doesn’t it? Did you get some more feedback on that? Thanks for looking into this anyway, highly appreciated!
