How it Works

A Bisq is a picture or video post that may consist of a title, recipe, restaurant name, location, or a description.

My Feed is your homepage. You will see the activity of people you follow. This includes when they post something new and when they Favorite or Re-Bisq a post from another person.

Explore Bisqs is a feed that shows you a variety of posts from other people on the site who choose to share their Bisqs with the whole community.

You can upload in two ways. At all times there will be an “Upload A Bisq” button on the right side of the navigation bar. 

As the Bisq'r, you can edit your posts by going to the Bisqs tab in View Profile, selecting which post you’d like to edit and then clicking on the edit button on the top right corner of the photo. Once you have made the desired edits, you can save the changes by clicking on the Submit Bisq button.

Go to View Profile and all the Bisqs you have ever posted will be there. 

You can search users, dishes, tags, restaurants and recipes. You can also find things that have been posted nearby. You can sort your search results by Most Recent and Most Relevant. 

To Re-Bisq is to share another user’s Bisq with your followers.

You can easily link your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts to Bisqit by connecting them when you sign up for Bisqit. If you are already a user of the site, you can go into Settings, click on the social tab and follow the prompts connect your accounts from there.
