3. Slideshow which includes multiple photos
4. A Quote which allows you to add the quote, who the quote is by, and additional text.
5. A GIF allows you to search for a variety of GIFs in which you can also include text.

You can also add activities you’re currently up to such as “How Are You Feeling?” by clicking the smile face icon at the bottom of the posting area next to the privacy selection.

To tag your friend connections in the DIYvinci community you can use the @ symbol and start typing their name or use the tag button located next to the smile face next to the privacy selection.
