    In this latest release we’ve added a new social bookmarking service called OldRecOldRec.

    So if you have a ‘Free’ account, head to the Setup Wizard and add it in so you get more credits for your efforts.

  • We can now create your social bookmarking accounts for ya!

    If your time is valuable, you likely don’t like spending it doing menial, repetitive tasks such as creating social bookmarking accounts.

    Well you’re in luck!  We now have a new option as part of the Setup Wizard which charges a small 1-time fee (currently $7) for us to create all your (17) social bookmarking service accounts.  This process can often take over an hour.  Luckily we’ve got a team of minions that are really good at it 😉

    Here’s what you’ll get:

    • A new email address (either Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail) and password
    • All 17 accounts created and email verified (unless any of the sites are offline)
    • An email containing the credentials of your new accounts
    • Peace of mind knowing it’s been done properly and no steps were missed
    • Turnaround is typically within 24 hours

    This is part of the latest release, v2.13.   Also, we’ve unfortunately had to disable the Faviki service as we were having technical issues sending it data.

    We’ve just rolled out some more changes to SocialAdr!

    They include:

    • SiteSays social bookmarking service added.
    • Faviki social bookmarking service added.  They’re pretty interesting as they use Wikipedia-concept tags, rather than just allowing anything and everything.
    • Jumptags social bookmarking service added.
    • Gravee social bookmarking service removed.  This is hopefully temporary…it seems that their site is infected with a trojan so nobody can register and it sets off virus scanners.
    • Propeller social bookmarking service removed.  They didn’t seem too keen on the type of bookmarks coming from us – as they’re more of a “News” site – so we thought it was best to respect their wishes.
    • Improved the Setup Wizard for DeliciousYahoo linking to make it easier to use.
  • SocialAdr v2.05 Released

    Yesterday we released version 2.05 of SocialAdr.   This release included our final enhancements prior to the new WSO we’ve been planning for a while.

    Here’s everything that was modified:

    • Delicious <-> Yahoo OAuth integration is complete.  Everyone using their Yahoo account to sign into Delicious can now set it up.   I’m pretty sure I gained a few gray hairs working on this 😉
    • The social bookmarking service Bookmark4You now has a hyperlink to the user pages on the History – My Bookmarks and History – Shared Bookmarks pages
    • Bug fixed on Share Queue and Quick Share pages which was setting a limit of 10 “I prefer not to share this” bookmarks.  Users who had clicked the button more than 10 times would still see the additional bookmarks.
    • Setup Wizard enhanced so the flow was more sequential…Share and then Add Bookmark
    • New registration pages added for the WSO
  • SocialAdr v2.0 Released

    Last night we released v2.0 of  This included many changes, updates, and fixes.  Here’s the full list:

    • Added Setup Wizard – the Setup Wizard is an easy, step-by-step process for getting your account full configured and ready to go.  It walks users through setting up the social bookmarking accounts, creating their first bookmark, and sharing their first bookmark.  It also keeps track of your progress so you can use it any time to check if you have anything you need to do.
    • Added the ‘Prefer not to share’ button on the Share page – we know that sometimes there are links you’d rather not share, but you don’t feel that they rise to the level of abuse.  For those cases, we’ve added the ‘prefer not to share’ button, which will simply remove that link from your Share page so you won’t see it any more.
    • Removed the bookmark ‘cell’ – This feature wasn’t adding much for our users (except sometimes confusion), so we simply removed it.  You bookmarks can still be placed into a state where other members won’t see them, but it is now indicated by a green light on your bookmarks page.
    • Added the ability to ‘pause’ a bookmark – a paused bookmark is still in your account, but it won’t be made available for other members to share until you start it again.  This gives you much better control of exactly what’s being shared and when.
    • Moved archived bookmarks – archived bookmarks are no longer listed on the My Bookmarks page.  They have been moved to their own page which can be accessed from a link at the bottom of the My Bookmarks page.
    • Added the ability to Add as many Bookmarks into the system as you want.  Any over the “active” limit will just be automatically disabled.
    • Added OneView social bookmarking site
    • Added A1-Webmarks social bookmarking site
    • Added LinkaGoGo social bookmarking site
    • Disabled Bloglines site – This site was focused on RSS feeds, so we disabled it (for now).  Look for this to brought back in a different form in the future.
    • Re-designed the accounts – we have removed the old Good and Awesome accounts (for new users) and replaced them with three new account types:
      • Link Builder
      • Link Addict
      • Linkaholic

      All of the new account types have an increased maximum number of bookmarks in the system, and an increased maximum number of shares.  The rate of return on share credits is now different per account type (Addict gets more credits per share than Builder).

    • Free Accounts updated – free accounts have also been changed.  Like the other account types, they now allow more bookmarks to be stored and more shares per bookmark.  They have had their rate of return for share credits reduced.
    • All account types have had their maximum shares per day set at 5.  This is primarily an effort to be more responsible with the social bookmarking sites, but will also increase the likelihood of logging in and finding you have enough items to share on any given day.
