This is the last of our series of blog posts answering your social media questions from the recent contest.
Twitter have recently introduced geotweeting although not everyone is using it and it’s not 100% accurate. It does mean that you can use Twitter’s in house ‘advanced search’ to find local users. You can search by town or country.
Not as accurate but still useful is Tweepsearch, enter: location:”your town” into the search box and it will throw up results based on the information users have added to their profile.
Our last question is from @360Dvirtualtour their website is here.
Although Facebook does allow you to target by town in other parts of the world it has yet to introduce this for Ireland. The official reason from the Facebook site is:
Unfortunately, our targeting capability internationally is still somewhat limited. Cities may not be available in certain countries due to the small number of users in these locations. Cities will be made available as Facebook traffic in the area increases.
If you have a social media question you would like us to answer leave a comment below or tweet it at us (@spiderworking) including ‘#smq’ in the post.
UPDATE 13th May 2010
Facebook now allows you to target individual towns and cities within Ireland with your ads.
