UpNext Map Permalink: Email, Blogs, Twitter, Tumblr

At UpNext, we try to make it easy for you to explore and discover this great city of New York. Users love how they can intuitively find places to eat, drink, shop, sleep, and more. We recently added a feature so you can share your finds with others.

You can now create a map permalink and share it with your friends. Here is an easy step by step tutorial.

1) Find the Place you want to share
Navigate the map and use the search bar, category medallions or activity buttons to find the business, landmark, intersection, or address you want to share.

2) Map Permalink

Click on "Map Permalink" button on the top right corner of the map


the "Send it to" button on the right side bar.

3) Customize the snapshot
- Select the size of your desired snapshot. A red box will appear which are the borders for the image size.
- Move the map to center your selection and to include any landmarks or streets you think are appropriate.
- Click "Create Snapshot" to capture.

(The example above shows the new Shake Shack on the Upper West Side. We have included the street names as well as the Natural History Museum on the right for context.)

4) Share the map permalink

- Copy the URL and send it in an email

- Copy the embed URL and post it to your blog

- Send the image along with a message directly to your Tumblr

- Post a Twitter message with the map url included

These permalinks are great for adding visual locations to messages. Here are some example of the permalinks in use. Twitter Example, Tumblr Example

If you come up with or see any other creative uses for UpNext permalinks, please let us know in the comments.

Those who do not know about the terms MMO and confuse it for MMORGP should know that the latter means massive multiplayer online role playing game whereas the former means massive multiplayer online. These are two different categories of online games. Also lovingly referred to as AoC, Age of Conan has its own followers all over the world. There are countless websites that cater to the followers of this game and thanks due to its popularity, there are many online forums too that have been specially launched for the lovers of this game.
