New Follow Button!
We’ve got more exciting news, and we want to share it with you!
We’ve rolled out a “Follow” button on Hometalk, and you’re the very first to know about it! Going forward, whenever a Hometalker reads your post, and would like to see more from you, they’ll be able to click “Follow” on your project page.
You'll now be able to see how many Hometalkers are following you. Your followers will get updates when you post a new project, and they'll see your content front and center when they come to Hometalk.
The follow button is just the tip of the iceberg! We’ll soon be releasing “Social buttons” on all project pages as well, so Hometalkers can follow your DIY journey, no matter the platform or channel! Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Blog, they’ll ALL be there.
To get ahead of the game, you can go into your Settings → Social Links and fill out your social links here so that, when those buttons appear on the site, you will already have them up and running. Keep in mind to only link to your DIY related accounts.
We’re super excited about this new feature, because it will allow you, the Influencers of Hometalk, to grow your following and expand your reach. We hope that this will set you on the path to building an even more awesome brand!
