ThingLink has developed tools for image interaction that allow content sharing via online images. ThingLink technology changes how people engage with photos by transforming them from a static image, into a navigational surface for exploring rich, relevant content that enhances the viewer’s knowledge and experience. ThingLink is helping define pop culture with a transformational, engaging, adoptable, and viral media/content serving format.
