Plink allows users to personalize and tease content with ease and immediacy without ugly, unuseful, antiquated, clunky and long URLs. Plink lets users instantly create mobile-friendly, mini-billboard content previews to instantly visualize web pages across all their devices.
Plink.Love = Link Love
We wanted to give the 'old skool' link some new school love. Plink is more than a link preview it's a way to bring links to life and make content secure, contextual, fun and social. Put simply, Plink makes links lovable.
Parisa Hoveida, Invisible Friend Founder & Director of Creative
The indexed web is built on links and every day, billions of people share links with one another through email, social media and chat messaging apps. Since the creation of the first web page 25 years ago, there have been countless innovations in the way we discover and share information. Plink empowers users to uniquely express themselves by tailoring content for any audience with features that include customized design, photo editing, text editing and color editing outside the existing confines of uniform, stock link previews that currently exist on the Internet.
“We wanted to give the 'old skool' link some new school love. Link previews look the same for everyone and don’t reflect the vibrant diversity, individualism and creative expression of modern internet culture,” said Parisa Hoveida, Invisible Friend founder and director of creative. “Seeing a need for a simpler and safer way to dynamically share content, we created Plink to make link-sharing in less social environments more fun and personal.”
Plink gives people the power to make their content stand out in the competitive world of homogeneous web content. To create a Plink, simply navigate to www.Plink.Love and after cutting and pasting a URL into the link preview generator, users can immediately personalize their tiles by selecting different colors, changing the text of titles with custom messages, images and even choose to save their custom Plinks. Plinks can be shared over email as well as HTML. Signing in with their Google Sign in give users additional benefits, including integrating with their contacts, sharing through Gmail and the ability to save their Plink for future reference on their own profile.
“Plink is more than a link preview it’s a way to bring links to life and make content secure, contextual, fun and social. Put simply, Plink makes links lovable,” said Hoveida.
Plink 1.0 is the Alpha release and first ‘proof-of-concept’ iteration of the link preview generator. The Plink team plans to roll out upcoming product releases that include additional features and updates in the coming weeks. Additionally, the team is also currently in development exploring new environments for Plink that will be announced in Q1 of 2017.
