    hi,

    when i post a mylikes link on facebook it transforms into a clickable image that redirects to the mylikes site.

    Howe does that work? Is it possible to apply this technique to tumblr and twitter? (great ctr)

    Thanks,

    Guybrush

    Are you talking about the link thumbnail that appears when you post a link on Facebook? If not, then can you please screenshot it so that I can have a better idea of what you are talking about. :)

    Hi Zwielicht, I am talking about the thumbnail that appears on twitter pic when one uploads a picture. OP says that on Facebook it shows a thumbnail photo when one posts a mylikes link, well on Twitter it does not, however I have noticed some people adding their own related pic with their mylikes link on Twitter, but that would mean that one would have to send their tweet outside the mylikes module. Is that allowed? I find an image attracts more clicks, but not sure if that's breaking a rule on mylikes. Am I making sense? [​IMG]

    I'm not too familiar with Twitter or MyLikes, but I did find a thread from 2013 where someone mentions using a thumbnail with MyLike links on Twitter.

    As for whether or not it is allowed, I read the MyLikes TOS and found a section where it mentions that you are allowed to "create content to the service including text, images, and video". I linked to the TOS so you can read it if you want.

    Sorry I couldn't help you any further.
