Tagging All the Attendees of Your Conference in a Huge Panoramic Photo

July 1, 2010

During the 2010 edition of the Glastonbury Festival a huge panoramic photo was taken, including more than 70,000 attendees. Now people have the possibility to tag themselves and their friends on it, creating a wonderful archive of the event. Wouldn’t it be useful (& fun) to do something similar at your next conference to document who participated and enable post-event matchmaking between them? It’s also a good example of Social Media into action through creativity.

Now this picture, which was snapped during the halftime of the England-Slovenia World Cup Match, is being circulated around the web and tagged via Facebook Connect. The panoramic photograph has already been tagged with thousands of people and is, in all likelihood, the most-tagged photo in existence.

The experience is a bit like Where’s Waldo for the digital age, where oddly dressed cartoon characters are replaced by real people. If you enable Facebook Connect, you can tag yourself and your friends. Just be a good sport, and don’t tag people you know aren’t in the photo. That would ruin the game for everyone, wouldn’t it?
