Introducing Following Collections on Android

If you download the latest Android We Heart It update, you might notice a little something extra. After hearing your countless emails and tweets, and doing a little engineering magic, you can follow collections on We Heart It!

We Heart It - Android - Follow Collections

As much as you dig who you’re following, we understand that you might enjoy some of their hearts more than others. That’s precisely why we’ve released following collections. Collections give you a peek inside someone’s personality, dreams, and aspirations, and we want you to connect with others on the images, topics, and inspirations that matter to you most.

We Heart It - Android - Follow Collections in List View

Next to the title of each collection, you’ll now have the option to follow it. When you follow a collection, the activity from this collection will now appear in your Following feed.

Love someone’s travel collection, but aren’t too fond of their nail art collection? Toggle which collections you’d like to follow or unfollow directly from the Collections list view, or from your dashboard.

We hope you enjoy this new feature, and we look forward to hearing what you think.  Site and iOS users – we’ll be rolling out to your platforms soon.  Please reach us at if you have any suggestions or other feature ideas. We really value your input, so … we might just build it!

Crème de la crème this week:

Cranking up creativity…

We’ve revamped profile pages to make them loads more valuable and creative.

We’re packing some serious heat in this update, so let’s take a little stroll through the new changes – we created a GIF to do most of the explaining for us:

  1. Your very own display ‘canvas’ featuring larger images and your latest collections
  2. A customizable cover image
  3. Updated pages for your hearts, collections, followers, and following lists
  4. Quick access to your top tags
  5. Ability to add images to more than one collection
  6. AND faster image viewing with 3 images per row

Veteran-tip: based on community feedback ‘sets’ are now ‘collections’.

If you can’t wait one more second to start customizing your new canvas and updating your cover image, check out the steps below:

We LOVE getting your thoughts on updates like this one and truly aim to make every new design and feature something that our We Heart It community is asking us for, and will find value in. Please reach us at with any feedback – the good, the bad, and the ugly – so we can continue to grow with you. Enjoy!


Spread the love! Check out how hearting just got even better.

Have you ever received a notification saying that 5 people have re-hearted an image from you, and wondered who these 5 people are? Well, wonder no more! Happily, for all you who have been asking for this, we’ve released a new RE-HEARTING feature that shows who you’re inspiring.

Now, you can easily see who you are hearting an image from, and let that person know you’ve helped them discover the image. And fear not, image posters! You’ll still get credit every time someone hearts from you or from one of your re-hearters, and be credited for first posting the image. If you’re on the web, just hover over an image to find the original hearter. The first hearter is shown, as well as new hearters thereafter!

This new hearting structure helps spread the love around even more. Get notified when your followers are hearting inspiring and beautiful images they may have not otherwise seen. You help others discover new content, get notified when they heart from you, AND help the original hearter receive more hearts. It’s win-win!

Check out the new layout on the site below. We made it so the user you’re hearting from is shown right up front, so you can easily identify who helped you discover that image. Expand the image details to unveil where this image came from, and discover the original hearter.

To see the full list of people who have re-hearted from you, simply click on the next showing the number of people who have hearted from you.

And if you didn’t hear, this announcement follows our release of Mobile Image Upload, so make sure you download the newest versions of our apps for iOS and Android. We’re constantly working to improve We Heart It for you, so please keep the feedback coming. Happy hearting!
