Awesome New Feature on Kevin & Amanda + $1000 Visa Gift Card Giveaway to Celebrate! (Winners Announced!)

Today I am introducing CliqueMe, an awesome new feature on Kevin & Amanda! PLUS stay tuned below to enter for a chance to win a $1000 Visa Gift Card Giveaway AND an entire SimpleHuman smart kitchen makeover!! ($800+ value) It’s easy to enter — there’s only one entry and this giveaway is only on Kevin & Amanda! No blog hopping or thousands of “extra” entries! :)

 

cliqueme-social-network-tutorial-01

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.

 

cliqueme-social-network-tutorial-02

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.

 

cliqueme-social-network-tutorial-03

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.

 

cliqueme-social-network-tutorial-04

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.

 

cliqueme-social-network-tutorial-05

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.

 

cliqueme-social-network-tutorial-06

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.

 

cliqueme-social-network-tutorial-07

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.

 

cliqueme-social-network-tutorial-08

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

 

cliqueme-social-network-tutorial-09

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.

 

cliqueme-social-network-tutorial-10

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!!

 

cliqueme-social-network-tutorial-11

Another thing you can do with CliqueMe is if you find a photo you like, you can email it to a friend. Just click on the comment bubble, then click on the Share button at the top of the comment box. Enter in an email address and click the envelope to immediately share it.

CliqueMe is not available for mobile browsers yet, but it’s coming soon. Won’t it be fun when you can use CliqueMe like Instagram on a blog?? :)

Soon you’re going to start seeing CliqueMe on blogs and websites everywhere, even big sites like Tastespotting are beginning to implement it. CliqueMe is like a new social network on all your favorite sites. You’ll be able to like, save, comment on, and tag your friends on all your favorite photos across blogs everywhere. Be an early-adopter of this fun new social network, and join CliqueMe now!

Always up to try new things. Thanks. Thought you would like to know the Ally Bank ad keeps popping up at bottom where CliqueMe stuff is…covering up the CliqueMe stuff. I know the purpose of ads, but this one right there is annoying.

I am so sorry about that, Susan!! Thank you for letting me know. It is not showing for me. Is there any way you could send me a screen shot? I will send it to my ad manager and see if he can remove it. I would never want an ad covering up content! :) Thank you!! :) amanda@kevinandamanda.com

So sorry about that Tammi! Does it work on a smaller photo? Like the Visa Gift Card photo, or one of the travel photos in my left sidebar? What browser and OS are you using? Hope we can get it figured out!

I, too, do not see the CliqueMe button. I tried going to their website to signup but can’t find a spot to do so. Sounds very interesting and would love to try it.

Hi Jo! I am so sorry about that! Do you see it on any of the photos? Do you see the tab down in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen? Do you see the red, circular Pinterest in the top-right hand corner when you hover your mouse over a photo? Do you have any ad-blocking, flash-blocking, or javascript-blocking security settings that might be blocking the CliqueMe button? What OS and browser are you using? I’m here to help! Hopefully we can get this figured out. :)

I registered and there is a cliqueme tab at the bottom of the screen but nothing shows up when I hover over the picture. This is in Firefox. I tried Internet Explorer and the Cliqueme tab doesn’t even show up there.

I refreshed the page after signing up and now it shows up.

Thank you for letting me know about the refreshing trick, Kimberly! So glad it finally worked. :) I’ll pass on the information about Internet Explorer to to CliqueMe developers. :)

So simple to use! Great! Wish I could figure out how to follow Kevin and Amanda on cliqueme, but I bet that it’s easy and I’m just missing the obvious! :-P

Amanda March 6, 2014 at 11:19 am

Actually, you are right, there is not a super obvious way that I know of yet, lol! :) The best way I know of is to follow somebody from a comment they’ve made. When you see their comment, click on their name, then click the big red Follow button that appears in the bar down at the bottom of the page. I just made a comment on the Visa Gift Card image if you want to try it out! :)

CliqueMe is brand new, and they are still in the developing stages, so it doesn’t have all of the fancy new features we are used to yet, lol! :) But the CliqueMe developers have been AWESOME about working with me to add new feature requests, so I will definitely mention this to them, and if you have any other suggestions or recommendations about making CliqueMe easier to use, we would LOVE to hear them! :) Thank you, and good luck!! :) xoxo

doesn’t work for me, either. I created an account, but no “bubble” for comments. Perhaps all of our antivirus software prevents it. I allowed pop-ups but that does not help :-(

Amanda March 6, 2014 at 11:26 am

So sorry about that, Roberta! Did you try refreshing the page? That seemed to work for a few people above. Try it on a small photo first, like the Visa Gift Card image. Can you see the red, circular Pinterest button when you hover your mouse over it?

That’s great that you were able to get it to work on your iPad! It’s not working on my iPad, but I only have the old, original, very first iPad. :) I can see the CliqueMe tab down at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, but not the bubble over the photos.

Good luck!! :)

Mine is iPad 2. It appears to work. Not very user friendly on here though. Maybe I will try on desktop to see if it acts better. I rarely use my desktop…I love my iPad. I bet it won’t be long before CliqueMe has apps for mobile devices. :)

Went to the site first, could not figure how to register from there! Lol – No place so I tried in the little pop up but the only way it would take me was to use my facebook, so I did. However when I come back I do not see the little sign to login again down in the corner nor on the photo? 20 minutes later I do not know if I am registered or it works??? So I go and try it on another page I found. There I login and it throws me off the page but to the sites main page and I go back and login and try again and it does the same thing….came back here and it still dont work and I just feel stupid…. lol – I give up!
