Sharing Photos


Photos are very eye-catching content on the web and mobile, it is definitely a cool way to share beauty information with others, it could be your FOTDs(Face-of-the-Day), LOTDs (Look-of-the-Day), NOTDs (Nail-of-the-Day) or even just inspirations, well, you get the idea. :)

Let's move on to.. Sharing Links


Ever wanted to show someone how some things can be done in a matter of a few minutes? Words are a great way to express and instruct but sometimes demonstration just does it better than words! It is also so much fun to watch everything in action, instead of having to read. Therefore video sharing is so popular with the beauty community all over the world! We share a lot of make –up tutorials, reviews of products etc in the form of videos.
So here’s how you can share interesting videos on VanityTrove:   


1) Surf the web for the suitable video which interests you.
2) Simply copy the link and paste it onto the Beauty Talk Post box or your profile’s Post box. Include a liner with #hashtags and @mentions of what to expect from the video link to make it more exciting!



3) After that, you should see the preview of the video below.
4) Once you’re done, this is what you will see. If you like what you see, simply click Post to share it with others!


5) Finally, your post should look like this!


How about posting both photos and links?


Now that you have mastered how to do each of the both, why not try to enhance your post with more enriching content by combining the both?

1) Paste the selected link onto the Post Box.
2) Upload the selected picture(s) and write your own caption with #hashtags and even @mention to let your friends know about it!


3) And tadah.. Hit Post button when you are ready!


There you go.. You have an image of a freeze frame of the video as well as the link to the video you would like to share! Don’t forget to #hashtag or even @mention friends or products/brands to help people discover this meaningful post you have made. ( You may read learn more of #hashtag and @mention here

Hopefully this is helping some of you ladies out there to share more actively and to create a voice of your own within this community. There is so much more to beauty than we know. Well, isn’t that the beauty of discovery?

Good luck!
