Did You Know?

Did You Know: sharing is caring on Polyvore? By "liking" and, thus, sharing what you find on the site, you can help your friends and followers discover more about your unique style and maybe even inspire their creativity, too!

What does it mean when someone "likes" the same item as me? Is it considered copying?

It's a compliment- they love your sense of style! All items on Polyvore are for the community to use. Saving other member's liked items is not considered copying.

Can you turn on or off activity notifications for liked items?

Yes! Go to your Settings page from your user name located at the top right corner of the page. After that, select the Account tab. In there, you can check the activity notifications you want and uncheck anything for which you do not want to receive notifications. Make sure to click the Update button at the bottom to save your changes!

What's the best way to share my sets on other networks?

First, make sure to link your Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, blog, or other network accounts to Polyvore. Go to your Settings and navigate to the Sharing tab where you can add your login information. After you have linked your account(s), you should be able to seamlessly share your sets on other networks when publishing your set by selecting "Quick share with friends"!

Can I get notified when someone "likes" the same item as me?

You sure can! Make sure you've opted into receiving emails from your Account tab in Settings. You can choose to receive emails about new followers, item "likes," sale alerts, messages, and more. Just check the box next to the feature you would like to receive emails about.

nice reading this, but there are still Polyvore-friends they think we are copying or stealing from them if we click on Like. I was threatened by one of them... he made items in Photoshop... he used it on Polyvore... and I liked and used them... he was angry and send me awfull mails... I have closed my account and started a knew one.... so now I am happy it is written ....

It makes my day when I go to my page and see 50+ in my Activity box. I love all the wonderful creative friends Ive made here. I don't think it would have happened if not for the ability to like a set.
Wonderful! So glad you put this up in the Activity area

There are times that we encounteer fear and disappointments in life yet we still manage to stand up straight and face it rather that being silent. That was a very good example of being a brave person. Well, I would like to thank you for sharing a very good article it is very much appreciated, good job! You can visit my site too if you want. Have a great day.Enjoy!
