|My Twitter Flickr mentions have leapt using this tip.|
I went from having about one mention a month on Twitter to daily referrals to my pictures and photo stream. Its such a simple little trick, but I'm amazed so few people have switched and tried it.
All you need to do is add the '@' symbol to your Flickr screen name. So, for example, I'm @doug88888.
Using this one simple change, I hugely accelerated my number of views on mentions via Twitter. It's a great way to raise your profile on Twitter and Flickr at the same time.
If you combine this with automatic posting via If This Then That, you can really supercharge your Flickr / Twitter interface.
How do you change your Flickr profile name? Just go to your Profile page, the select Edit your Screen Name. Add an @ symbol to your name. Done.
I've not tried this with other social media sites. Would this work on Tumblr or Instagram?
