Setting Up Your Own Loop
Users can create or join communities (loops) to share similar interests or discuss. Loops can be open to anyone, closed (meaning only members can see the loops content), or private
(meaning only invited members can see the loop and see its content).
Loops can be created by any user and can be focused on a variety of topics, such as hobbies, politics, social causes, professional networking, and more. Members of a Loop can post and comment on content, share photos and videos, and engage in discussions with one another.
Loops can be a useful way for people to connect with others who have similar interests or goals, and can be a helpful resource for finding information, support, and community.
To start making a new Loop click on “Start new Loop”.
There are 3 different types of Loops to choose from:
Anyone (with a Scooploop account or not) can view the contents of this Loop
Only members can see the Loop's content
Only invited members can see the loop and see its content
If your Loop is intended to be “Open” to all, select the first option, “Yes, it’s open to all”. If your Loop is intended to be “Closed” or “Private”, select the second option, “No, it’s for loop members only”.
When setting up your Loop, you must add 3 bits of information.
- Loop Profile Image:
This image will be displayed to all that can view the Loop. Make sure the image select is at least 160px x 160px
- Loop Name:
This Loop Name will be visible to all that can view the Loop. The Loop Name has a maximum character count of 50 characters, and must not be the same name as a pre-existing Loop.
- Loop Description
The Loop Description will be visible to all that can view the Loop. Adding a meaningful description lets members see what will be posted in this Loop, and will help them decide if they want to join it or not.
You can then invite users to the Loop, either by username or by email. Note, you do not have to be friends with them on Scooploop to invite them. Alternatively, you can skip this step till later on.
Congratulations, you’ve successfully created a Loop.
