  • The Wait Is Over – Facebook Has Arrived

    It was a long time coming.  Truth be told we started development on Facebook integration in 2010.  Unfortunately there were some technical challenges that put the project on hold.  One of our main concerns with integrating a new social media service is the whole “footprint” issue, as well as the possibility of accounts being banned for “spam” or for being “too promotional”.   So these issues presented several challenges when it came to Facebook.

    The good news is, we’ve finally rolled it out and we believe our solution will be effective.  Subscribed members can now receive Likes on their URLs.

    What do I need to do to receive Facebook Likes?

    If you already have a ‘Lazy’ account, absolutely nothing.  If you don’t, you just need to upgrade.  Free members cannot receive Likes.

    Lazy Members

    Where can I view the history of Likes I’ve received?

    You can view your history at History > Facebook Likes Received

    How many credits does it cost for each Like?

    It’s based on the number of Facebook friends the user who clicked Like has.


    Example: A user has 356 Facebook friends and clicks Like on your URL.  You will lose 8 credits.

    How can I opt-out of receiving Likes?

    You can disable Likes for all your bookmark URLs here.

    Free Members

    How do I add my Facebook account to SocialAdr?

    Head over to the Setup Wizard page and authorize the SocialAdr Facebook app. Then you’ll see the Like buttons on the Share Queue page so you can start clicking them to earn credits.

    How many credits do I earn for each Like I click?

    It’s based on the number of friends your Facebook account has * a multiplier that’s related to your account type. For ‘Free’ users the multiplier is 0.1 (this is the same as when you share bookmarks).


    Example: A ‘Free’ user has 356 Facebook friends and clicks Like. She will earn 8 * 0.1 = 0.8 credits.

    Where can I view the history of Likes I’ve clicked?

    You can view your history at History > Facebook Likes Clicked

    The rollout of Google +1 is SocialAdr release v2.72.

  • Increase your Max Submissions per Bookmark

    We’ve had a lot of requests for this enhancement (v2.57), so we’re pretty happy that we got it rolled out.

    In the past, each account type (Free, Lazy Link Builder, etc.) had a “max shares” limit associated with it.  The better the account, the higher the limit.  And each “share” can result in up to 20 or so “submissions”.  Once the share limit was reached, the users bookmarks were archived and could no longer be submitted to the social media sites.  The only way you could un-archive them was to upgrade your account.

    Here’s how this all works now:

    • We’ve removed all “max shares” references and now we use “max submissions”.  The main reason for this is that each share results in a variable number of submissions, depending on numerous factors.  So it’s not really fair that Bookmark A might be archived after being submitted 1000 times and Bookmark B might make it to 1300.
    • You can now increase your “max shares” limit regardless of which account type you have. So if you only have a few bookmarks and therefore only require a ‘Lazy Free’ account, but want your bookmarks to continue to get submitted to the social sites, forever, you can boost your limit to “doubled” or “unlimited”.

    Just go to the Max Submission Limits page to increase your limit.

  • Tuning Up, Tuning Down – Part 2

    One of the items that we want to tune down is the amount of sharing that our customers need to do in order to reap the full benefits of their account type.  In particular, order those customers currently on the ‘Awesome’ account have the potential to have their links shared a lot, medical but it requires a ton of sharing on their part.

    To bring that more into line with how we’d like things to work, we’re going to actually tune up the ratio of shares received vs shares given.  Some of you that have been around since the beginning may recognize this as a leap backwards – we used to offer share return ratios greater than one on some account types.

    One element of tuning down that goes along with this change is that we will be reducing the number of potential shares per day for all account types to 5.  The biggest motivating factor here is to keep things at a level that the bookmarking sites won’t consider spam.  20 shares per day is an awful lot, especially if they are happening every day on a number of accounts.

    By tuning down the number of available shares per day, but tuning up the return on each share for our customers with higher accounts, we’ll be able to play a little more nicely with the social bookmarking sites while simultaneously delivering more value to our customers.

    A side effect of these changes should be an increase in the size of everyone’s share queues.  Since you will be going through fewer shares per day, you won’t have as easy a time exhausting the available share queue.

    In part 3 I’ll be addressing some important changes to our free account.
