It’s a new month, a new year, and we’re so excited to kick it off with some brand new features for you all! Our latest product updates include rich link previews and shortened links for dedicated gateways.These premium features are available to all Picnic, Fiesta, Carnival and Enterprise Plans that come with dedicated gateways. So if you don’t have your own dedicated gateway or know how to set one up, you’ll want to get started here.
Rich Link Previews
You know when you’re scrolling through Twitter and see a random link in a post with no image? Of course not because they aren’t eye-catching and you scroll on.
Statistically, people are more likely to click on links that have a visual image or GIF. And that’s why rich link previews for NFT projects are so important. With rich previews, you’ll be able to add your own preview image and a description of your content to all links. These links can then be shared across social media and other platforms for your audience to engage with.
Doesn’t this look so much better?
Another feature we rolled out this month is link shortening. It’s no secret that IPFS content identifiers (CID) are long. While incredibly important, sharing a link with a full IPFS CID can take up valuable screen real estate (especially on Twitter). By using this new feature, premium users will be able to create and share shortened links for their public files.
That’s it for our product updates of the month. We’re looking forward to shipping more new features for you all this year, so stay tuned!
