Our Connect hot tips
Create your own library of Posts
Use a hashtag that has your name on it. For example if your username is jezzyj, create a #inspirationforjezzyj on all posts that you want to look back on.
Add hashtags for all challenges and groups you participate in to all of your posts such as #wwwalkers #wwrun5k
Add hashtags for favourite recipes, or actitivites you enjoy like #earlyriser, #lovetobake or #mumofthree to your posts so other members with similar interests can find you.
Create a Challenge
Use a hashtags such as #WWWalk, #30daychallenge or #summerchallenge. Join a challenge by searching for hashtags such as #WWWalk, #run or #fruitandvegetablechallenge.
Add the hashtags to the bottom of your posts so that other members can find you.
Create a Group
Use hashtags to create groups such as #WWYoungSlimmers, or meet others who enjoy the same hobbies like #scrapbook or #lovetoknit or find friends in your life-stage like #futurebride, #newmum, #grandma.
Add the hashtags to the bottom of your posts so that you're friends can find the group.
