Twitter and a New Feature!

Store owners, this new feature is for you! You can now sign up to manage your own location on Knitmap! This means that you’ll be able to directly update your store’s features, address, hours, and notes as often as you’d like. Use the notes section to post about upcoming sales, classes, or new inventory. You’ll also receive notification whenever a comment is left for your store.

To register to manage your location, click the new ‘Manage Location’ box (above the map) on your store’s detail page, and follow the instructions to receive your confirmation code via text message. Don’t worry if your carrier isn’t listed (we’re working on adding more all the time), just send us an email with your name, Knitmap user name, store name, city/state, and a phone number (for verification purposes) and we’ll email you a confirmation code. As always, all of your personal information provided to Knitmap will remain confidential.

Once you’ve signed up to manage your listing, you’ll see that we’ve made a badge that you can place on your website. It will direct your web visitors directly to your listing at Knitmap!

Try it out, and let me know what you think!

Knitmap is now on Twitter. We’ll be tweeting with new features like this one, new stores, and other events that you won’t want to miss! Follow Knitmap here.

Oops!

It looks like the Update Location feature was offline last night, but it’s working now! I think I caught the few updates that were left in comments, but if I missed one, let me know.
