We just launched a fun little feature: heia.me/your_name
This link leads to your HeiaHeia profile page: booking your own username creates a public profile page, which anybody can see. If you are logged in into HeiaHeia, clicking such a link shows the profile of a user, according to the user’s privacy settings.
Public profile pages are not a new feature as such: we’re making them more fun and useful with short heia.me links – and by adding your yearly achievements on the page.
Example of a public profile page:
How do you get one: simply go to HeiaHeia’s settings to book your own link and username!
Settings: write your name or nick in the text field & click save:
If you don’t want a username and a public profile page, you’ll still have a short link heia.me/1234567890 at use, where the number is your HeiaHeia ID (you can see it in the URL of your profile page).
So what do you do with a shortlink?
- Short links like heia.me are especially handy in Twitter sharing. If you share achievements on Twitter, these are used by default
- heia.me/your_name is a simple “calling card” in HeiaHeia: if you want friends to easily find you (e.g. many people with same name), just give them the link
We’d love to hear your comments and ideas about this!
