What is LinkPan ?

sent to your followers, and are searchable on Linkpan search. Learn more about how to use Linkpan.

What's a Linky?
A Linky is any message posted to LinkPan which may contain photos, videos, links and up to 240 characters of text. Click or tap the POST LINKY button to post the update to your profile. Read our Posting a Linky article for more information.
Why 240 characters ?
240 Characters because we feel it is enough to convey a message without being too overwhelming
How do I find people to follow ?
When you create an account, you can search for people by name or @username.
What does it mean to follow someone on LinkPan ?
Following someone means you've chosen to subscribe to their Linkpan updates. When you follow someone,
every time they post a new message, it will appear on your Linkpan Home timeline.
How do I know who I'm following ?
After you click or tap the Follow button on someone's profile, you're following them. See a list of people you're following by clicking on
the following link on your profile page or on your home page's sidebar.
How do I know who is following me ?
Linkpan sends you a notification when someone new follows you. The Followers link on your profile page will also tell you who is following you.
Who reads my updates ?
Your followers read your Linkies. If your Linkies are public, anyone who runs a search for a keyword in your Linky may be able to see that
message. Your Linkies are public by default; if you're hesitant to have people you may not know read your updates, protect your Linkies to
approve followers and keep your updates out of search.
What are Replies ?
A reply is a response to another person’s Linky. Click or tap the reply icon on another person's Linky to reply to it. Please note that if
your Linkies are protected, people who are not following you will not see your replies or mentions.
What are Direct Messages ?
Direct Messages are private messages sent from one Linkpan account to other Linkpan account(s), and they do not appear in public for anyone
else to read. You can start a conversation with anyone who follows you.
What is the difference between a reply and a direct message ?
A reply is a public message sent regardless of follow-ship. Anyone can view it (if your Linkies are public). A Direct Message is a private
message, and can only be seen by the sender and intended recipients.
Can I edit a Linky once I've posted it ?
No, you can’t edit a Linky once you have posted it, but you can delete it.
How do I post a picture to LinkPan ?
