Which Social Media Websites Preserve Your Metadata?

David Riecks founded ControlledVocabulary.com as a resource to help others learn how best to build controlled vocabulary lists, thesauri, and keyword hierarchies for describing images in databases. He also has been involved in setting digital image standards initiatives and is a regular speaker on the subject.

One of David’s great projects is researching whether social media websites or other image sharing services preserve your embedded photo metadata after you upload your photos.  You can even help with his survey and report your results. Find out more on the Controlled Vocabulary website, and see the current results. Also check whether your images have embedded metadata. Thanks to David for his great work!
