Well, it must be spring.
It’s Red Sox Opening Day in Boston, and I’m using the occasion to test the Banjo real-time social media filter based on geographic location.
I’ve created a Web widget that circles in on social media posts re Opening Day in a region around Fenway. Let’s see if it works in this version of WordPress.
OK, I see it here in my draft.
Now, let’s see what happens when I preview and publish.
Umm, not showing in preview except as a link. Now I will publish.
OK, only shows as a link when I publish. and when I come BACK to this post — the image version has disappeared and I see just the link. This happened before when I did an embed. Grrr.
Well, as a text preview, this link is bringing me to a slideshow of photos. I’m assuming they are being uploaded in real time, tho I did start capturing them at 8 am today and will do so til 11:30 pm. I could reset that start time and see what happens.
Also, I want to see the MAP showing where posting activity is high. And I want to see better who’s posting. So going back in to get that URL.
Here’s the MAP URL — get an overview, then click on the Fenway area to see specific Red Sox postings. Explore in detail by opening it up and/or going to column atleft of screen. You can see users, which platforms they are on, etc.
