#18. MW101 w/SICπŸ€:: {Searchable post captionsπŸ”} I have seen a lot of chatter in the lounge in frustration w/ multiple people posting the same in park news, upcoming event or the like. In the past we have pointed to using the search feature, and or sometimes searching faster by Tags. With that said, I have seen a lot of this, "I have searched for this and nothing came up..." when in fact maybe at least two people have posted it. While I have seen that more and more people are genuinely trying to use the search feature, they are mostly unsuccessful by no fault of their own. Too often people will post a photo with news, new item food, show etc. leaving out key information in the caption. We have to keep in mind that if we want our posts to be searchable, we must remember to put the subject matter clearly in the caption. We see so many captions that are "Live", "Soooo good!", "lol", "Can't wait", these are great to have in the caption, but not useful when it comes to helping the function of the app. And I know we are guilty of it from time to time, but we can't be upset later if no one can find our posts. Also, If you are not yet familiar with the tags that Admin has set up for us, click here. It's fun to pick a topic and scroll through the posts: ...Make sure your great posts count! Thank you so much! πŸ˜ƒ

Great post Sic!! I admit it never crosses my mind to make it searchable when I'm posting. Thanks for the reminder! - SueBayou   2019.2 #98 7-11-12 11:31AM Like  Reply
Most of the time it's not the first thing on my mind ether. But lately with how big the app is getting, and with how much people care about things being posted before and who posted it first, I thought this might be a good thing for people to keep in mind. 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4410.2 #43 7-11-12 11:35AM
This is great info. I posted a pick about food in the park and noticed the food tag popped up for it. Which I thought was really cool. Thanks for posting this. - PrincessAuroraMomma   603.0 #398 7-11-12 12:17PM Like  Reply

good for a bump, one thing I learned too is before you post, after looking through search, check the news page too, it might be already be posted there too. - secretagentangel   14019.1 #8 7-7-13 2:11PM Like  Reply

Great bump for all the #60thanniversary excitement! Remember you can also hashtag Your captions now too, which is great for grouping content together. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ - Sweet_Irish_Cream   4410.2 #43 1-30-15 2:32PM Like  Reply
I wish they were in DL talk though, because I don't think many hangout in the hub anymore - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  731.5 #327 1-30-15 3:01PM
I commented on this yesterday on admin post but the post is down now. We had so many posts of mugs, popcorn buckets, brochures, pins  etc. . And I was wait , what?  But if you don't search news and posts and people don't do searchable titles it's a mess!  And I wish these could be in all lands so all could learn from them to help the lounge to run a bit smoother . Always love SIC 101!   - secretagentangel   14019.1 #8 1-30-15 3:28PM Like  Reply
