Tag "new"

Hi folks! We have a fabulous update for you containing pinning and Google+ sharing, shorter nicknames and rich commenting.

More share options

We improved our sharing options and you can now share any ThingLink image to  Google+ and Pin it to Pinterest. Share your cool images with your friends with one click.

We did another thing as well – if your browser language is set to Russian, you will see a VKontakte sharing button and if it’s set to Chinese you will see Renren and Sina Weibo sharing options. Did you also know that ThingLink features language regionalization for sharing and many other features and it’s accessible by any user who has set their preferred language in their browser.

Three letter nicknames

Listen up all people named Bob, Eve, Amy or Lou and any company with a three letter abbreviation. Hurry up since we now allow you to create three letter nicknames and they’re flying off the shelf. Have you checked if your nickname is already taken?

 

Rich commenting on ThingLink.com

This last one is really cool. You know how you dread clicking links because it takes you somewhere else and you know it’s going to take ages for it to load. Well, comments on ThingLink.com are now treated as our Rich Media Tags, which means that whenever you hover over a link in a comment we will show you that link as a Rich Media Tag. The link can stream music or videos, feature commercial links or highlight social profiles. Go crazy with it.

Hi folks. We hope you’re enjoying the new site. We’re hard at work making sure that the everything runs smoothly and that you have a excellent time creating and discovering new content with ThingLink. On top of that we’ve found time to develop a number of new features which we know you’ll like.

 

Unlimited More ThingLink Apps for Facebook

First off, if you’re a ThingLink user, you now have access to unlimited more ThingLink Apps on Facebook. It’s our way of saying we love our users. Check out our business page to find out how to get even more out of ThingLink.

 

Some users have had trouble finding the ThingLink App button since we redesigned the site but it’s definitely there. Look for Share above your image and click it. The symbol furthest to the left is your ThingLink App for Facebook button. Click it and you’re on your way.

 

Grab your personal customized vanity URL

Nicknames are now available to everyone. That means that instead of having a long technical profile URL such as http://www.thinglink.com/user/129489423384444929, you can now choose one such as http://www.thinglink.com/mostawesomedudeever.

Go to your settings and create one before it gets taken. I checked – http://www.thinglink.com/mostawesomedudeever is still available.

 

New and updated Image Tags!

We have significantly improved our SoundCloud tag and it’s better than ever. The same goes for the new Spotify and Rdio tags that allow you to feature virtually any song on your images.

The best new Image Tag is however our ThingLink tag. This tag allows you to take any user profile on ThingLink and tag it on any image effectively making profile tagging on images possible anywhere online. The tag also features new images by that user so you know what she or he has created. Clicking on them takes you back to ThingLink.com to see the image live with what it’s been tagged with.

Check them out by hovering the image below!

 

The technical stuff

We’ve updated our servers to make everything run much faster when browsing images on ThingLink.com and on any other site. If you ThingLink enabled your site or blog with the use of our embed code, we recommend that you update it with the new one.

You can find your personal code here. No worries if you don’t, your site will still work smoothly.

 

That’s the beef on our new features this week. If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch and we’ll help you out.
