Introducing Following Collections on Android

If you download the latest Android We Heart It update, you might notice a little something extra. After hearing your countless emails and tweets, and doing a little engineering magic, you can follow collections on We Heart It!

We Heart It - Android - Follow Collections

As much as you dig who you’re following, we understand that you might enjoy some of their hearts more than others. That’s precisely why we’ve released following collections. Collections give you a peek inside someone’s personality, dreams, and aspirations, and we want you to connect with others on the images, topics, and inspirations that matter to you most.

We Heart It - Android - Follow Collections in List View

Next to the title of each collection, you’ll now have the option to follow it. When you follow a collection, the activity from this collection will now appear in your Following feed.

Love someone’s travel collection, but aren’t too fond of their nail art collection? Toggle which collections you’d like to follow or unfollow directly from the Collections list view, or from your dashboard.

We hope you enjoy this new feature, and we look forward to hearing what you think.  Site and iOS users – we’ll be rolling out to your platforms soon.  Please reach us at hello@weheartit.com if you have any suggestions or other feature ideas. We really value your input, so … we might just build it!

  1. Create a collection containing the words Valentine’s Remix
  2. Add or re-heart images inspired by February 14th! Get creative with it, and if you’re not sure where to start, check out this collection to get started!

And that’s it!

On Valentine’s Day we’ll spread the love by sharing creative remixes on the We Heart It blog and social media accounts.

xoxo & happy hearting!
