Introducing The Brand New Vingle!

Don’t you worry, we’re still the same creative space for sharing what you love with others who feel the same way! We’re just sprucing things up a bit.

We know change is a little scary, so hopefully this card can explain the new features and ease any worries you might have. As always, we encourage your feedback! After all, it was your previous feedback that shaped this update!

Make Your Interests More You


On Vingle, there were over 3,000 communities created and while that seems like a large number, it wasn’t anywhere near enough to express everyone’s interests. It was frustrating for Vinglers to have to request and wait for their community to be created. Now, you have the freedom to create and tag your own communities! Don’t worry about the past communities. All that content will simply move to a tag. For example the Japanese Anime community will be in #JapaneseAnime with all the previous cards and events!

Express yourself freely and more accurately!

Follow Other Vinglers


Originally on Vingle you could only follow Collections, not people. That was because we wanted to free you from the pressure of having to write things that all your followers would like. Maybe you have a lot of friends that like Anime, but you also have a lot that don’t. If you post a lot about an Anime, some of your friends might not like it that much. That’s why we made it so you could follow collections and people could only see what they want to. Making you free to post whatever wherever!

With our new User Follow feature, you can follow your friends completely, but its still a little differnet from most platforms. You won’t see every single card from a user you follow in your feed. Instead, you will only be shown the cards written by that user that is from interests you might like. That way, your feed will still be what you want to see, but you can still enjoy following your fellow Vinglers. Content creators don’t need to worry about annoying their followers either :)

Meet a Smarter Feed


As mentioned above, our feed logic is getting smarter. We will work hard to show you cards from your interests and related interests to give you want you want! The feed will also be better at highlighting new and interesting content that you will surely enjoy.

On top of that, we’ve made the feed a one-column feed! This will help you avoid click-bait posts that have a catchy title and photo and it is a fresh way to show off your content! We released this slowly over the past few months and the feedback was mostly positive! Thank you to everyone who helped test and improve this design :)

Write More Easily


Something else we got a lot of feedback about was out Card editor and we’ve made some changes that will make it a lot easier to create content here on Vingle. You no longer have to go through certain steps like choosing your title, collection, and language choice. You can simply write and post, making sharing what you love so much easier!

We’ve also added the ability to clip other content and show a link preview so you can write about something without others having to open a new window. Easier writing, easier reading :)

Express Yourself with Top Interests


Now you can more easily express yourself on your profile. You can choose four interests to highlight as your ‘Top Interests.’ These will show on your profile so that anyone who visits your page can see what you’re really into. You can change these as often as you want!

If you’d rather keep some things private, you can also make your followed interests private instead of publically viewable.

Cheer on Others!


Since the new Vingle wants to focus more on Vinglers rather than content, we wanted to create a feature that celebrates others. That is how the new ‘Boost’ feature was born!

Whether you’re impressed by another Vinglers’ knowledge of a certain subject, or perhaps their talent or humor, you now have a way to show your gratitude. Simply give them a Boost in whatever community you’re thankful to have them in. It’s a way for you all to get closer and for Vinglers to be celebrated for their great contributions to the community.

That’s It!


Wow, thanks for reading all of that! How does it sound?

We know its a lot of take in, but we hope this helped explain the new changes. We encourage you to try it out yourself and give us your feedback. We built this will all your previous feedback in mind, so we hope you love it! We will be updating our messaging feature soon, and we will be sure to communicate with you about it!

Thank you as always for being the fabulous family that you are!

looks like vingle wanna be twitter
i didn't of that... i was think tumblr xD
like friend
Someone needs to make a 'How To Guild' cause people still getting confused
We will be updating our How To Cards very soon!
@VingleEnglish Thank you for finally updating!! Sure, its very different, but I still very much enjoy the app. ^^ I do agree with @AnimeFreak484 though... I dont HATE the fact that it shows several media files, but it does kind of get rid of the point to put warnings and thumbnails on the cards... So I felt like the "one picture thumbnail" caught a lot more attention...
Thanks for the feedback! We will consider this for the next time we update!
Though I can't speak for everyone obviously, I actually really like this new update, feels like it will simplify things and give Vingle a much more streamlined appearance ^-^ Thanks Vingle for all the effort you put in to make this app awesome!!!!!
We're glad you feel that way!!! Thanks for the positive feedback :)
I don't use hashtags and now I can't find anything. I liked clicking on a community at the top of the page to read what was posted. I have such a variety of interests so I don't follow specific people.
You don't need to follow specific people if you don't want to. You can continue to only follow communities. Also there shouldn't be any difference between hashtags and communities so if you can't find anything please report that as a bug. Right now, all the old content is still right where it is, but instead of the Kpop Community its just in #Kpop!

Vingle Wants YOU To Be Honored as a Pioneer
Hello Vinglers! Within the past few months, Vingle has undergone quite a few changes in how our communities run, including the addition of features like Talk and Q&A! We know many of our older members have been waiting a long time for one particular update, and we’re happy to announce it is here! Our new community government system is finally ready, with a lot of exciting changes. Be sure to update your app to experience it all! We’d like to introduce to you, the role of President! Presidents’ roles and responsibilities will be much greater than our previous Moderators, and they will have a much larger Staff to collaborate with! The Roles and Rights of Presidents: - Presidents have access to the Citizen Desk, a system that facilitates content management to check if there is spam/ads, improperly sexual or violent content or irrelevant content among cards that are submitted to your Community. For help, check out the Content Guideline!) - In the future Presidents will have the ability to create Labels, which can organize content into specific groups. For an example, check out the Labels in Japanese Anime. - Presidents will make sure the community remains a safe place for all members, by keeping an eye out for disagreements or problems between members. - In the future Presidents will have the ability to enlist the help of other members for roles such as Editor in Chief, Whiz, Host, and more! We will fully explain these roles when they are introduced :) - The first President of a community will be known as a Pioneer to mark their achievement! As an example, you can check out VingleEnglish who is the president of the Kpop community and Funny Community. Don't worry, official Vingle accounts will retire from their post to make room for Vinglers, it's just an example :) If you would like to run for President of a Vingle community, please fill out this form Further positions that will support the president and the community will be introduced, so please look forward to having lots of opportunities to participate! For the Vinglers who kept up the responsibilities of Moderators all this time, your hard work has not gone unnoticed! You’re the reason why Vingle communities are such a positive place that continues to grow. We’re excited to see how our communities thrive with the new system, and we’re so happy you’ll be a part of it!
Vingle Guide: Meet Your New Interest Page!
Hello Vingle Fam! There has been a recent update regarding the Interest page here on Vingle! Now, when you go to one of your interests, you will see a new layout and new tabs on your screen. In order to make the change as easy as possible, here's a quick walk through of what's new! First things first, let's learn about Interests and Communities! Wondering what that ‘CMTY’ next to your favorite Hashtag is? That indicates a Community. A Community is an Interest that has a council taking care of it. That means a President, Editors, and many other roles have volunteered to keep the community active and fun! Interests are hashtags that don’t have a community council organized for them. Both Interests and Communities are great places to share and interact with people who love what you love, so check them all out! And now, let us be the first to welcome you to The Commons! What Is The Commons? Many places in our society use the word Commons to describe a meeting place where people can trade ideas, art, and goods. From university campuses to marketplaces, political bodies to communal farming. The Commons is place where people and ideas come together and make something bigger than themselves. On Vingle, the Commons is where all parts of your Interest meet. You can easily view Talk, Q&A, Cards, related Interests, and other Vinglers who follow the Interest. See the latest conversations happening in Talk, browse some trending Cards, and see if you can answer any questions in the Q&A! The Commons is where it all happens! What's Up With The Cards? In the next tab on the new Interest page you will see Cards. When you open this tab you will see that you can now sort the interest's Cards by Recommended and Recent. You an also easily post a Card from this tab! Hit the red "plus" button at the bottom right and write your Card as usual. If you write a card from this tab, you don't need to add an interest! It is automatically selecteed for you. If you're in the Kpop community tab, it will go into Kpop, if you're in the Funny tab, it will be published to Funny! Just write and share with the community :) Let's Talk... One big change is the Talk feature! Previously, Talk was available only in one place, for all interests. Now, each Interest has its own Talk! You can chat in the Anime Talk and then head over and check on the Movies Talk. Share a joke in Funny's Talk and debate over the best ice cream flavor in Food's Talk. If you want to just chat about random thoughts in your head, visit the Vingler's interest to Talk! Talk is filled with fun new features. - A button that makes it easy to scroll to the beginning of the messages so you can catch up on the conversation. - Send an explosion of hearts for all members of the chat to see when you really love a Talk message. - Turn notifications for a Talk on and off to stay up to date. - Add an image as the first message and it will be displayed as the main Talk image! Are You Curious? The final tab is the Q&A tab, which won't change too much with this update. Here is where you can ask anything related to the Interest and get feedback from your fellow Vinglers! We're a supportive community so don't be afraid to ask for help with a new camera in Photogrphy, or advice on love in Love and Relationship. Get the answers to all your curiosities! Thank you for getting to know the new Interest features and we're excited for your feedback! Really exciting changes are coming up next! You wanted moderators back? They're on their way ;)
Goodbye But Not Goodbye!👋🏻
Hello everyone! I'm making this card to let you all know that I will not be on Vingle that much anymore. And I am not reapplying to be president for the BTS community. So if you want to apply to be the president click the link below⤵️ https://vin.gl/i/BTS/community/council/elections/465?asrc=copylink Good Luck to every one that's going to apply! Anyways I thought a lot about leaving Vingle. It was pretty hard trying to make this decision. It's just not the same like it used to be. When i first got on vingle back in 2015, I think. Alot of people used to make cards, comment, like, asked to be tagged and communicate with each other. It's not like how it used to be back then. Don't get me wrong I love posting cards but I haven't been in the mood to do it anymore. It's just too much. I've met a lot of wonderful ladies! @Jiminsnooder was one of the very first friends I made on here. Now she is my Internet best friend more like a sister to me. I'm glad to have her in my life! It's crazy to me though to see so many people that like my cards. I never thought that anyone would love what I post. But I was wrong. You guy's loved the cards I made! I would like to say thank you to everyone I tag in my cards! You guy's are amazing!❤ And everyone that follows me! You are all awesome! I would like to thank my BTS ARMY TEAM! @Jiminsnooder @DefSoul1994 @MelissaGarza @jungkookieeeee you girl's were such a big big help with keeping the community an awesome place for eveyone to enjoy! I am very thankful for you girl's! I will be on vingle still till my term ends! I just won't be posting that often like I normally do! So you will see me pop in once in a while. I will try to keep you all updated with the BTS content! Thank you all again! I LOVE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU GUY'S!!❤ P.S. It you still want to be tagged in my cards comment down below! I'm going to keep my bts taglist and my regular taglist! If you want to be removed just comment below and I will remove you from the taglist!
