Users commonly share photos from their photo gallery application with others via social media applications, messaging platforms, email, etc. Many such applications and services allow viewers to interact with the shared photos by providing tags, comments, emojis, etc. Monitoring engagement with a shared photo requires the user to interact separately with the notifications from each app and toggle between various apps and services where the photo was shared.
This disclosure describes mechanisms to automatically determine audience interaction that occurs in response to the shared photos across multiple apps and services, implemented with user permission. When the user views the original photo within the photo gallery application, the unified audience engagement to date is presented along with the photo.
