Mutual aid community platform

How does it work?


You are new on EchangeLike and would like to know all the operation of the platform? Follow all these points and EchangeLike will have no secrets for you!


1. Registration / Login

a. Register
To use the EchangeLike platform, you need an account with a unique login (nickname).
Registration is done using your Facebook account: click on a login button (eg in navigation menu) and then validate the Facebook connection.

This Facebook connection allows EchangeLike to register very quickly and prepare your member profile with your public data: name, surname, email, language, profile thumbnail image...
It also limits the number of false accounts since a Facebook account can only be linked once to an EchangeLike account.

Once you have logged in to Facebook and after you have authorized EchangeLike to access your Facebook public data, you will need to choose a unique login (nickname) and password that will be associated with this account.

b. Login
You can choose between two connection methods at any time between:
I. Using login / email address
By choosing the "Nickname / Email" method, you can enter your unique pseudo that you chose when you registered, or the email address linked to your facebook account that was used to create your EchangeLike account.

Your EchangeLike password will then be requested to connect to the platform.
II. Using Facebook
By choosing the "Facebook" method, it is your Facebook account currently in use on this browser that will communicate the email address to EchangeLike in order to log in.
If you are not logged in to Facebook, a pop-up window will open and ask you to sign in, this process is 100% secure.

Your EchangeLike password will then be requested to connect to the platform.
c. Forgot your password
You do not remember your password?
You can ask to reset it by a request that will be sent to your email address using the following link: Lost your password?

2. Create / manage your publications

a. Create a publication
To create a new publication, go to "My Account" and then "My Ads", or by clicking the following link: My ads
Then click the button "Add Exchange Request".

An EchangeLike pop-up will pop and will show a multi steps form:
1. Title: Title of your publication that will be displayed, example: Facebook contest "Win a restaurant lunch"

2. Website: Which website is concerned? Choose from the list: Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter etc...

3. Exchange type: What favour do you need to get? Choose from the list: Like, Share, Comment, Retweet, Follow, Vote etc...

If so, you will be able to define whether or not a "Facebook registration" prompt is possible.

5. Destination URL: Enter or paste the link (URL) of the website's page where you want to bring the user so that he can help you. Example: the contest page that concerns you, your Facebook page, your YouTube channel etc...

Special case: if you chose Facebook as website, after entering the URL address you can choose to use the "Quick Exchange" option .
Clicking "Use the option" will allow you to choose from multiple Facebook quick-exchange views (renders).
Choose the one that best suits you by ticking its corresponding box and the option will then be available on your publication!

When you go to the member's profile page (point 5.a), you will find a summary of all its publications.

You can quickly and easily see the publications for which you have already helped or not, this allows you to quickly validate some additional exchanges if you wish.
b. Validate / cancel credit (exchange)
On the publication page you can validate/cancel an exchange using the following options:
I. Classic exchange
By clicking the buttons , you will access (in a new tab or new window) the destination where the member wants you to help him.

You decide whether to perform the requested action or not, then close this page and return to EchangeLike.

Back to the EchangeLike publication you will be able to validate or not this exchange via the following button:
You have validated? 

You have validated the exchange:
Click Yes, you will receive a confirmation of your exchange and then the button will appear
Click on this button and follow the instructions si vous souhaitez déposer un message au propriétaire de la publication (recommended).

For a publication whose site is Facebook and whose owner has configured it to use the quick exchange option, a button is visible on the page.

Click on it and a pop-up window will popen(command, mode) and will show a preview of the destination Facebook web page.

Imagine a like request for a Facebook page, click \"like\" if you want to validate the exchange and then close the modal window with the cross in the upper right corner.

Then, as for a classical exchange, validate it by clicking on:
You have validated? 

You can then submit a message to the member who owns the publication to notify him you have exchanged and ask for a return.

After you have validated OR canceled an exchange on a publication, the \"Drop a message\" button appears so you can contact the publication owner to warn him.
The pop-up window that opens offers 3 steps (at least one must be filled in):
I. Send a text message
This text message is not used to request a return!
It is used to give indications which the owner of the publication may have requested in the instructions of the publication and/or to give an explanation of his request.

Example:
I voted for you, I am the 55th vote and my name is "Captain Haddock"
II. Send a screenshot
The screenshot is unquestionably the best proof of your exchange!
In this step, load your screenshot where you clearly show that you have validated the requested help and you have all your chances of having a return from that member!
III. Ask for a return
In this step, if you have an active publication on which you'd like some help in return, you can select it.
The member who will receive your message will then clearly see in his received exchanges that you want him to return a favour on the publication you have chosen.

4. Receive some help (use some credits)

a. Share your publication's link on the web
EchangeLike provides you with a unique URL (link) for all your publications.

To find the URL of one of your publications:

Page "My Ads": go to "My Account" page and then on "My ads", or by using the following link: My ads
In your publications, find the one you want to share, and in the table entitled "Link to share", copy the apparent address.

b. View your received exchanges (and their messages)
The page is in "My account" and then in "My received exchanges" or via this link.

Whenever a member of the EchangeLike community reports that he helped you (green) or canceled (red), this exchange will be added or updated to your exchanges received list.
You can sort this list in chronological order from nearest to furthest or vice versa.


Message(s) linked to an exchange :
Each exchange comes with the history of its linked message(s). This history is not available if no message was dropped, otherwise it is ordered in a chronological order of the message from the most recent to the oldest.

Thanks to these messages you will be able to check that the exchange has been done and see if the member asks you for a favour in return.
