Making Your First Postwire

Postwire is the name of the tool -- and also the name we give to the page-place-canvas-microsite-portal (oh, so many names have been suggested!). You share information and ideas with one or more people on a "Postwire". 

1. To make your first Postwire, click the Orange +New Postwire button in the top navigation bar:

2. The first thing you'll want to do is post some content. You can enter a Web Link; Upload videos, photos or documents; or re-post content From Postwires you can access.

4. Postwire will analyze the web page to get the title and thumbnail image(s) to represent it.

5. Upon completion of the analyzing phase (usually takes no more than a few seconds), the content is presented for editing before saving. Cycle through thumbnail choices by clicking the left and right arrows. If you are not happy with the images you see, click Can't find a good image? and upload any image file (.jpg or .png format) you want to use for the thumbnail instead. You can also edit the title. When finished, click Done Editing.
