How It Works/FAQ


Q1: What is Compiled?

Compiled is very simple. We allow you to create a single landing page for all of your social media links. We do not take or use data from those social networks. Think of us as an outside pathway to get from one network to another. Use our link in Instagram bios or places where you're restricted to one link.

Q2: How do others view my page?

You can share your page link with others (compiled.social/username). The perfect place for this is your Instagram/Twitter bios, or even in YouTube descriptions.

Q3: Will my email be displayed publicly?

Nope - only you will see your email.

Q4: Why can I only have letters/numbers in my username?

Other characters are prevented for a variety of reasons. One of them being that anything else would look nasty (in our opinion).

Q5: How can I make my password safe?

We have already worked very hard to keep your password safe for you. But you can help us by including special characters (!,%,/, etc). We won't even be able to see your password ourselves.

Q6: How do tags attract more people to my page?

They will play a part in exciting future features we hope to introduce.

Q7: What is a featured post?

Adding a featured post to your page is highly recommended. We embed a post of your choice, from a range of social networks, into your page. All you need to do is find the appropriate URL for that post, select the network, and you're set! Only posts that are set to public on that network will work. Here's a video tutorial if you get stuck.

Q8: What is a profile image?

You can include a profile image, similar to other social networks. The URL must be to an image file (ending in .png, .jpg, etc). Please remember many images on social networks are private, particularly Facebook. If the preview is blank, we're afraid your image is invalid.

Q9: Can I add other links that aren't currently on the list of social networks?

Definitely. They'll be displayed differently, but if they're from a popular network - you can suggest for us to add a nicer icon.

Q10: What is reCAPTCHA?

reCAPTCHA is a service offered by Google that prevents robots from crawling our webpages. We want to keep Compiled exclusive to real people, and we're sure you do too.

Q11: I'm having problems with the site, where can I get help?

We're sorry you're struggling. We promise to help you as best we can. You can contact us here, please make your e-mail subject as clear as possible so we can return the favour with our response.

Q12: Can I change my username/email address?

Sadly we do not offer this as an option. (Hint: it's very easy to delete one account and create another!)

Q13: I would like to delete my account, how do I do this?

It is absolutely your right to remove all of your data from our site. You can do this by following the 'Delete' button at the bottom of the update page. If you still have issues, we're always happy to help, you can contact us here.

More common questions will be added here as time goes on.
