    For this latest release we’ve added a new Quick Tweet page which allows you to tweet 5 bookmarks at once, with the click of a single button.  If you’re familiar with the Quick Share page, this new page functions exactly the same, except rather than submitting bookmarks to your social bookmarking accounts, it submits them to your Twitter account.

    We’ve also:

    • Improved the “Tweet This” button performance on the Share Queue page (but we still plan on making it even faster)
    • Updated the History – Stats page to show more detail about Twitter
     
  • Announcing Twitter!

    After a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, we’ve finally completed the Twitter integration functionality!

    We’re especially excited about this because search engines more than ever are factoring what they call ‘social signals’ heavier and heavier in their algorithms. This means that having your bookmark URLs tweeted hundreds of times will push your sites up in the rankings, faster than ever before, shooting past your competition, while driving hordes of fresh traffic.

    Here’s how it all works:


    ‘Free’ Members

    1. First you need to head to the Setup Wizard.  Here you’ll create a new Twitter account (if need be) and authorize SocialAdr to access your Twitter account.
    2. Next, go to the Share Queue.  You should notice new buttons on each bookmark (they may take a few seconds to load).  By clicking these new buttons you’ll see a popover box like so: If the “Default” tweet message is ok, simply click “Submit”, otherwise feel free to type your own “Custom” message.  Keep in mind the bookmark URL will be auto-appended to the end of your message so you’ll only have about 110 or so characters for your message.  We’re using TinyURLs to shorten any long URLs in order to conserve as much space as possible for the tweet message.  You’re currently able to send a maximum of 5 tweets per day.
    3. Now you can head to the History – Tweets Sent page to view all the tweets you’ve sent.  You can see the URL you tweeted about, the SocialAdr user who owned the bookmark, a link to the actual tweet on Twitter.com, how many credits you received, and the timestamp of when it happened.

     


    All Members

    1. The number of credits that are earned/deducted for each tweet is calculated based on the # of Twitter followers the account has.
      • ((ln(followers+50)^2)/3)-4
      • Example:  a ‘Free’ member has a Twitter account with 2035 followers. Each tweet that they send will earn them 15.5 * 0.2 = 3.1 credits.  The 0.2 multiplier is consistent with how social bookmarking submission credits are calculated.  The member who owns the bookmark will be deducted 15.5 credits, regardless of which account type they have.
    2. On the Add Bookmark page you’ll see a new “Microblog Message” section that allows you to customize the default tweet message for each of your bookmarks.  The default message is simply the bookmark Title.The user who actually posts the tweet to their Twitter account can still choose to write their own custom message, but at least, as the bookmark owner, you can set a custom message that we believe most users will choose to use.  And good news, spin tags {|} are accepted!
    3. You can view the history of any tweets you’ve received on the History – Tweets Received page. You’re shown the URL that was tweeted about, the SocialAdr user who sent the tweet, a link to the actual tweet on Twitter.com, how many credits it cost, and the timestamp of when it happened.  Notice that the first row cost 15 credits, because “kane” must have had between 1,000 and 10,000 followers.  The second row cost 5 credits, because “jaspert” must have had between 100 and 1,000 followers.

     


    What if I don’t want users tweeting my bookmarks?

    No problem at all, you can opt-out here.

  • Bookmark Archive Limits Increased

    Good news!  We’ve decided to bump up the archive limits for all the ‘Lazy’ accounts.  This means your bookmarks will remain in circulation much longer and will be submitted to the social bookmarking sites many more times.

    • Link Builder – from 40 to 75
    • Link Addict – from 80 to 150
    • Linkaholic – from 160 to 300

    If you have bookmarks that were previously archived, you can go to the Bookmark Archive page, and click this new button:

    Unarchive Bookmarks button

    …to move them back into the Share Queue.

    This change is for SocialAdr v2.27.

    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
