Watch a community grow

Real-time interactions in a clean timeline.

With checkthis, the community sits next to the content, which means your timeline is always visible to the right of your poster for easy viewing and increased interaction.

When people visit and interact with your posters, it appears in real-time on a timeline with no need to reload the browser. The timeline shows every interaction with your posters including likes, comments, votes on polls, and mentions on Twitter. It also notifies you if your poster is on fire or has been featured on the Explore page.

We pull information in from Twitter, so you don't have to go there to find out when your poster has been mentioned—the tweet instantly shows up in your timeline.

Never miss a beat thanks to notifications.

The notification panel makes it easy to stay on top of everything. Be alerted to new comments, likes, votes on polls, mentions on Twitter, and massive traffic—for all your posters and those you have interacted with.
