The Finnish startup ThingLink has brought Facebook Timeline images alive by making them interactive. Facebook users can now post images with embedded links and videos as well as option to share and purchase content.
The links and other content appear inside an image when it is “touched” and the users can read or watch content without leaving Timeline.
According to ThingLink its solution supports media tags from services like Youtube, Vimeo, Instagram, Imgur, Flickr and Twitter.
— Images are becoming forums for conversation and discovery that include sharing, touching, commenting, and remixing rich media content created by others, comments ThingLink’s CEO Ulla Engeström.
ThingLink, founded in 2010, is an interactive image platform with over 130,000 publishers. Its proprietary, patent-pending web-based solution allows publishers to create, tag and share any image and in any environment. The company also offers metrics for measuring image performance across social channels like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.
