Upside Down Facebook Day 2010: Conclusion

24 hours really fly by, don’t they ? Next time, we should do an Upside Down Facebook Week! What do you think?

Upside Down Facebook Day 2010

First of all, a big thanks to our 1,532 confirmed participants (and some of the 789 maybes). That’s an 80% increase compared to last year’s first edition of Upside Down Facebook Day.

We scanned our guest list and 1 out of every 5 profile pictures were upside down, which is impressive considering Facebook made it REALLY hard for users to rotate images. First of all, the rotate buttons inexplicably disappeared by default. Additionally, if they finally did appear, many users were presented with the following error message when trying to rotate their profile pic: “Photos Unavailable We’re sorry, photos aren’t available right now. Please try again.” Despite the serious handicap, 20% of of you managed to flip their profile pictures and ─let this be a reminder─ many of you still have to flip them back :)

Our upside down status generator tool was 4 times as popular than on normal days, and it’s usage increased with 300%  compared to Upside Down Facebook Day 2009. Overall, reface.me attracted a record-breaking 10,849 unique visitors on June 9th and we’re very thankful for that!

New this year was the surprise participation of some Facebook Pages, and we can only applaud the effort! We’ll definitely increase focus on Pages for our next edition. Another surprise was the upside down landing of a vintage airplane in Washington DC. That’s just taking it too far :)

Again, thanks for actively participating in the second edition of Upside Down Facebook Day. Please take a split second to vote in our poll (to the left) and if you have any comments or suggestions, please post them in the comments below. We hope to see you next time!
