    For this latest update, we’ve rolled out integrations to 3rd party services for Facebook Likes.  When we’re unable to determine how many friends a user has, you’ll just be charged 10 credits per Like (similar to how Google+1 works).

    We’ve also updated the spintax {|} function to be more random, as there were cases where if the same block of text was reused within a Title or Description, it would generate the same spintax iteration.

     
  • You can now slow down your bookmark submissions

    We’ve just added a new feature called Submission Rate.

    You’ll see a new field on the Add Bookmark page, as well as on the My Bookmarks page.

     

     

     

    The field when you add or edit a bookmark takes priority over the “Default Submission Rate” field on your My Bookmarks page.  So, as an example, you can set the Default rate for your account to “Slow”, but then override individual bookmarks to be “Normal”.

    The Submission Rate options are:

    • Drip = once every 7 days
    • Slow = once every 2 days
    • Normal = twice a day

    To slow down your submissions, your bookmark will be automatically paused .  You can still start it again yourself if you don’t want to wait the 2 or 7 days for it to receive submissions again.

    Important

    There’s no guarantee that the rate you set will be exactly what you receive, because of the human element of SocialAdr. So if you set it to “Drip”, don’t be surprised if you get submissions every 8 days, instead of 7.

    This new functionality is v2.725.

    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.

    ((ln(friends+50)^2)/3)-4

    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).

    ((ln(friends+50)^2)/3)-4

    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.

    This latest release includes many improvements to the My Bookmarks page:

    • Removed “Domain” column as it was redundant as the URL contains the domain
    • We now save the “state” (# entries shown, pagination, sorting, search results) so when you reload the page it looks the same as last time
    • Changed “Last Activity” column from friendly time (ie, 7 minutes ago) to a purely numeric representation of yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm so that the column was completely sortable
    • Updated “Submissions” column to be sortable even if fields contain strings (eg. 78 of 100)
    • Added link to Title field that went to a page where you can view the spun title, spun description, and tags

    We also updated the Overview documentation.  Details of new features had to be added and some irrelevant information was removed.

    The Resellers – Control an Account page has been updated to include buttons to all the history pages, including recent ones like Google +1 and Facebook Likes.

    And last but not least, we’ve added Facebook Likes!  Details about this will be in a following post.
