We Heart It Introduces Postcards, a New Medium for Visual Communication

March 26, 2015

New Feature Gives “Hearters” the ability to Send Image-Based Messages

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – March 26, 2015 – We Heart It, the inspirational social network for connection and expression through images, announced today the launch of postcards, a visual communication platform. The new feature will allow We Heart It members to send short personalized notes that, when tapped, unveil an image from the site.

This new feature was created as an easy, authentic way for members to start a conversation with someone who shares the same interests. We Heart It users are known for inspiring each other across geographic and cultural boundaries; the introduction of postcards now lets members connect directly to one another. In addition, they can send postcards from We Heart It to others in their social circle via text or social sharing.

“We Heart It has a community that values inspiration and positivity, so we knew the timing was right to allow Hearters to get in touch with one another directly. Young women use We Heart It to find inspiration as they shape their vision of themselves and their future: their emotions, their fashion choices, where they want to travel, what they want to experience, and who they want to be,” said Dave Williams, CEO of We Heart It. “Our members have been very vocal about wanting more opportunities to interact with one another in a new way, and we listened.”

With well over 30 million registered members, We Heart It continues to expand around the globe with its young female member base. More than 80% of We Heart It users are under the age of 25 and access We Heart It via a mobile app. Messaging is the single most requested feature by members of the platform.

To send a postcard, select an image from the We Heart It app or site, tap on the postcard icon, and enter an accompanying message. Select one or more followers on We Heart It, or send the postcard via text or other social channels to people outside the network. Recipients will receive a push notification alerting them to the arrival of the postcard, and when the message is tapped, the underlying image will be unveiled, creating a moment that can delight or inspire.

About We Heart It
We Heart It is an inspirational social network for connection and expression through images. The service has a community of well over 30 million members who use We Heart It to discover, collect and share images on its highly rated mobile apps and website. The company has raised more than $8 million in funding and is located in San Francisco, CA.
