Sharing

Pin Drop is all about selectively sharing. Keep the things you want, private to yourself and then share everything else with the people you know and love.

Social sharing

More sharing options

Tap on the 'more' options and after selecting the visual styling you want to use, go ahead and choose where you'd like to share. We can't guarantee that all apps will work so if there are any that don't work, let us know and we'll get it working.

Other apps you might like to share your Pin Drop content to include: Telegram, Signal, WeChat, Messenger, TikTok, Viber, Line, KakaoTalk, Zalo and Snapchat.

Inviting

You can invite others to Pin Drop by sharing https://pindrop.it or suggesting they download the app from the app store https://pindrop.it/get.

From the 'more' tab in the app (just below your username) you can tap the QR code for someone to scan and follow you or tap the share icon to share Pin Drop any way you like.

Ideally both users should have Pin Drop installed and created accounts for this to work smoothly.

Followers and following

When you create a profile people can request to follow you and see your public content. You can also follow other profiles. People who are friends with you will also be able to see the people you follow and those who follow you.

At any point you can stop following accounts and also stop other people from being able to follow you.
