The IPTC Photo Metadata Working Group tested about 15 social media networks which support the sharing of photos how they support the persistence of embedded metadata, in particular the fields which are relevant for claiming rights. The results of March 2013 are shown on www.embeddedmetadata.org/testresults and provide some hope: a small majority of the networks keeps the metadata but there are also systems which strips it out. Read also the news release about it. A campaign has been launched to embed descriptive and rights information in digital media and to retain it during the whole life cycle as outlined by IPTC's Embedded Metadata Manifesto (EMM).The initiative has been launched by the International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC), the American Association of Advertising Agencies (4A's), and the Association of National Advertisers (ANA), with the support of trade organisations representing visual arts and photo agencies.
