LikeToKnow.It App & Screenshot Technology

Happy Tuesday, friends! I wanted to post this yesterday but got completely caught up with other things. You know how Mondays are 🙂 Even though I’m a day late, I’m really excited to bring you exciting news about ! If you’re not already familiar with LIKEtoKNOW.it, here is a quick overview: it is a free service that allows you to easily shop your favorite Instagram photos by simply ‘liking’ the photos. After you sign up for an account on liketoknow.it, each time you ‘like’ an Instagram photo that is enabled with LTK, you would get an email right in your inbox with links to all the products tagged in the photo. How can you tell if a photo is LTK enabled? Any shoppable photos will have a caption that looks similar to this: shop this look via @liketoknow.it here: http://liketk.it/5xs6b
If you don’t want to wait for the email, you can access the product details by entering the liketk.it hyperlink in your web browser. This hasn’t always been the easiest method for a couple of reason. It’s often hard for people to realize it’s a link because [1] the URL ends in .it instead of .com and [2] it’s not clickable within the photo description because Instagram only allows links in profile descriptions.

I’m really excited to tell you today that shopping your favorite Instagram photos is so much easier because LIKEtoKNOW.it has now launched their own app, which you can download here!

LikeToKnow.It

The brand new app allows you to shop your favorite digital influencers content not only on Instagram but also on Facebook, Snapchat, and Pinterest! This is all done using a new screenshot technology. Once you download the app, you will need to connect your Instagram account and allow the app to access your screenshots. Anytime you see a LTK enabled photo that you like on Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest, etc., just simply take a screenshot of the post. Within a few seconds, you will get a push notification at the top of your screen saying “Your screenshot by ____ is ready to shop!”. You can then open the LIKEtoKNOW.it app and shop all the products in the post! Another really cool feature is that you can still “like” the photo just like you always have and it will populate into your feed on the app the same as your screenshots. You can delete the screenshots from your phones camera roll without them deleting from your feed in the app. I love this screenshot technology because it allows you to shop your favorite photos from multiple sources of social media, not just Instagram (more on that below). The email service is still enabled but you can update your preferences to no longer receive them. To update any of your settings, just visit the account settings page on the LIKEtoKNOW.it website.

If you don’t want to sign up for LIKEtoKNOW.it or use the app, you can still get all my outfit details right here on the blog. On each page, there is a link in the top right corner that says “Shop My Instagram“. Just click on any of the photos to get the outfit details.

Your favorite influencers can also enable their Snapchat, Pinterest and Facebook content with LTK. You will see a small watermark of the LTK logo in the bottom corner of the content as a visual cue that that photo is screenshot enabled. The screenshot technology is key for those posts because liking the photo won’t provide the details  All Instagram posts with the usual LTK caption within the photo description are screenshot enabled, as well, but the influencer doesn’t necessarily have to add the watermark to the photo.

If you still have questions about how to use LIKEtoKNOW.it, there is a FAQ page within the app settings. The LTK team also put together this super helpful video that explains it all really well. I think this app will make it so much easier to shop my outfits. However, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me! I try my best to respond to all emails and comments. I hope this post was helpful for everyone. Don’t forget to download the app and be sure to leave any questions or feedback in the comments section below!
