To create a post, click “Create post” or “Post” buttons in the app.

First you type a title for the post, and then select a topic to post into. For example “Check out this BMW M3” and “Cars” topic selected.

You then type or paste in your text content, upload an image or insert a GIF, YouTube video, poll or emojis and then click “Post” to publish it.

Your post will show up in the topic you chose (with “newest” selected) as well as in the following feeds for people who follow you. It may also make it into the global feed if it performs well enough.

Carbon Live posts do not require a title, and they appear only in the Carbon Live feeds for people who follow you.
