For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may already be aware of LIKEtoKNOW.it But what you might not know is what it is for and about the newly updated App. For those who don’t use Instagram there is now a brilliant new App that allows you to shop screenshots from around the web, follow bloggers and find out where to buy what they are wearing and save items to a wish list for later.
So what is LIKEtoKNOW.it?
The LIKEtoKNOW.it platform was launched to help you shop outfits or items that you saw on Instagram. Rather than having to contact the person posting the image including something you wanted to buy, you simply had to sign up with LIKEtoKNOW.it and Like an image to get the links to buy emailed to you. However, Instagram has recently changed its permission settings so that this functionality no longer works. About a year ago the LIKEtoKNOW.it team created an App in readiness for these changes. So now all you have to do is screenshot a picture and you will find it in the App, or follow your favourite bloggers (follow me here) to shop what they are wearing and recommending. This last week there have also been some exciting new updates too. So read on to find out how you can take advantage of the brilliant technology the App uses.
How to Use LIKEtoKNOW.it
First of all go to the App store and download the App. Notice the ratings 4.8!
Then create your account and login.
Next use the search for Influencers you would like to follow (including me of course!)
Here is what my profile looks like. If you have an Instagram account and follow me, you will see that all of these images were posted with the hashtag #liketkit and a special link in Instagram, which then adds them to my profile in the LIKEtoKNOW.it App. You may also notice in the bottom right hand corner the circular symbol which means this image has been posted into the App. You will see this on any bloggers you follow who also use LIKEtoKNOW.it It works on Facebook and Twitter too, as long as you see that symbol you can screenshot the image and it will be added to your likes inside the App.
When you are logged in to the App your feed will show all of the images you have taken a screenshot of as well as any new images from Influencers you are following.
You can then click on a picture to get all of the details -see below
Then you can click on an individual item for more details or if you don’t want to buy straight away you can add it to a wish list so that is easy to find again later.
Here is what your wish list looks like – get to it by clicking on the heart at the bottom of the screen.
This brilliant new App makes it so much easier to find items you are looking for. There are searches for different LIKEtoKNOW.it hashtags. For example I will post mine into the Europe hashtag, others include Sale Alert, Style Tips, Fitness, Home, Beauty and more.
I hope that gives you a better understanding of what LIKEtoKNOW.it is and how easy it is to use. Once you have followed someone you will automatically get their posts added to your feed. Of course you can still get links from my blog posts, the shopping pages under the Wardrobe Essentials menu option and on the Shop My Instagram page.
