HOW TO USE WHAT3WORDS - A BEGINNER'S GUIDE

in Steem Ghanalast month


Greetings everyone,

We have had the pleasure of receiving many newcomers into our community this particular year. Several of them are doing really well on the platform so far through actively engaging in contests and participating in the achievement post tasks, which is quite commendable.

However, we must strive to constantly add value to the content we create through the use of markdowns and useful tools such as what3words for locations. This helps readers to better understand and relate to the content we create especially in our diary game and my town in ten pics posts.


ABOUT WHAT3WORDS

It has various apps for different devices.

Hi @njaywan!, this is very nice piece of tutorials delivered on #what3words. Actually most steemians aren't conversant with how to use this tool. That's why they find it difficult to join "My town in ten pics gaming." Hence, having been updated by this will be a great advantage for Newbies to learn and share their location of pics.

My pleasure pinning this tutorials in our Community!
