Status updates let you share what’s going on right now with others in your community. You can add links, pictures, or @mention a person, a place, or a piece of content to increase the visibility of your update.
Status updates can be created as a community wide status or targeted in a select group.
To create a status update:
- Click Create > Status Update.
- Enter your update and include any photos or @mentions you’d like to include.
- Include tags if you’d like your status update to be searchable later. Entering # before a word in your status update turns that word into a tag.
- Choose where to post your status update. The default will be in the community but can be changed to a place.
- Click the Post button to post your update.
- If you posted the status update in the community it will appear in the Activity Stream. If in a place it will appear in that place’s activity stream.
