Social Media Sites Photo Metadata Test Results
We have uploaded an IPTC test image with embedded metadata and have checked if any of the embedded values are displayed and if so, which ones. As a next step we have tried to save the picture from a Social Media web site or system on our local computer and then we checked what metadata fields are still embedded.
Find the test results in the grid below – in short: a green light indicates good results, a yellow one not so good ones and the red light that the handling of metadata should be improved, grey means: was not available for testing.
You can read the full details of the tests on this page. It lists all details of the test procedure and what the icons below stand for.
Background: This test is driven by the Embedded Metadata Manifesto; an expression of a business need by those who use metadata and claim that metadata associated with an image should be persistent across all workflow steps – including any public display. It is addressed to the parties adding and managing metadata and to the companies running systems which enable media and metadata workflows.

Please note: This is not a library-specific workflow, but may have impact on how libraries develop their workflows for embedded metadata with regard to social media implementation.
