Once you’re proud of your work, make it public by clicking the green icon at the top right of the editor.

2. Share Your Designs on Social Media

In addition to being able to share your design publicly on Canva, you can also share directly to Facebook, Twitter & email without leaving the page.

Using Canva is a great way to get your designs in front of your followers, and add visual content to your social media strategy.

Your Canva profile is a great place to link to from other social networks -- including your Facebook page or profile or Google+.

Ever wonder what people think of your work?

Engaging with others on social media can help you get exposure & build your following.

It’s also a big motivation to create thought-provoking graphics that start conversations.


By connecting with people you know, you’ll be able to share work with relevant friends & interact with them on Canva.

What do all good designers have in common?


Boost your following by inviting your friends. Canva automatically prompts you to invite your Google+ friends -- with more social network friend lists to come.
