Navigating the Site
What you see:
The Homepage shows public posts from all of our users
Your profile page shows posts only from your followers & people/pets you follow. The same applies to the profiles of your pets.
To the right of the screen you’ll find handy tools to help:
Find friends – type in the person/pets name to show name matches and their images.
Tag Filter – See what’s “trending”, click on a tag word to view posts relating to that topic. This function enables users to see the most popular topics of the moment, as well as search for particular interests.
Post Filter – change the screen view according to which posts you would like to see – just text, just links, just images or all.
Using your profile
Putting up a post:
You can “tag” anything you upload so that it can be found in searches. Enter words in the “Tags” box on your profile page. For instance tag your kitten picture as “cute” or “funny”. Tagging will also play a big part in competitions launched through the website allowing you to win fab prizes so keep your eyes peeled!
The Heart Icon:
Show your love for a post by clicking on the heart icon beneath the image. You can then choose who wants to “love” the post the owner or one of the pets. Help your friends’ pet pics feature in the “cute picture” box which shows the picture with the most “loves”.
Comment on any post by clicking on the small comment box beneath the image. There is a small arrow directly above the comment box that allows you to choose who is making the comment (the owner or the pets).
Posts that are inappropriate or offensive may be reported using the small wheel in the top right hand corner of every post (hover over the image). This is also where you are able to delete your own posts.
