I teased a little about CliqueMe in this post, but I wanted to take the opportunity to share more with you about this awesome new feature and fully show you what all it can do. I’m so excited about it! :) Plus, to celebrate, there’s an AMAZING giveaway down at the bottom of this post!! :)

You may have noticed that if you hover your mouse over any image on this blog, you’ll now see a little heart and comment bubble down in the bottom right-hand corner of the photo. (Go ahead and try it with the photo above!)

With CliqueMe, you can click the heart or comment bubble to like or leave a comment on any photos you see now.

Click the heart to “like” or click on the comment bubble to leave a comment. You can also read all the other comments and see what everyone else is saying about the photo.

To start liking and commenting, you’ll need to register your username for CliqueMe. CliqueMe is brand new and there are not that many users yet, so you may even be able to get your first name! :) Registering is a one-time only thing, and you should stay signed in, so the next time you come back you won’t have to keep logging in over and over again.

To register, click the CliqueMe tab down in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

Enter your desired username, password, and then your email address on the next screen. That’s it! You’re all signed up! That’s all you have to do. You don’t have to confirm your email address or anything. From here you can start liking and commenting away. Photos you like will be saved so you can easily find them and come back to them later, like on Pinterest.

To start exploring, click on the Trending button in the bar at the bottom of the screen. This will show you the most popular images on Kevin & Amanda right now.

Hover your mouse over any of these images to see how many likes and comments they’ve received. Click on any of the images to be immediately taken to the blog post associated with that image to learn more about it or get the recipe.

If you want to explore more, you can also click on the My Profile button. From here, you can see all the photos you’ve liked. It saves them for you so you can find them again later. If you have a blog, you can put in your blog URL. Click on the bell by your name to see your notifications, like if anyone is following you or if anyone has mentioned you in a comment.

You can also connect CliqueMe with your other social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Instagram.

Connect your accounts to find all your friends on CliqueMe to follow. You can tag them in photos and mention them in comments and it will show up in their notifications, like on Facebook.

You can also use these accounts to easily login to CliqueMe the next time you need to login. I have been using CliqueMe for a couple of weeks now, and I haven’t needed to login again since the first time. But if you do need to login again for any reason, and you’ve connected another social media account, you can just click that one button to be immediately logged into CliqueMe instead of having to fill out your username and password again. Yay for less typing!!
