It's running on a free Heroku instance with a $5 MongoHQ DB backing it, so I fully expect it to explode if it gets any appreciable attention, but I'm pretty proud of it for an evening project and wanted to share.
Thanks to HNer mslagh for the domain - I picked it up as a part of his giveaway a few weeks back. :)
Anyway, good on you and good on him for the domains.
+ Finding the people who shared the same bookmarks as you, and also measure how different they are from you: This might uncover bookmarks and areas of interests that weren't on my radar.
+ Look for users who have similar tagging patterns: Finding similar people would be handy, then I could subscribe to their bookmarks. Delicious has a feature called the user's Top 10 Tags. I wonder if there is a way to compare how similarly you tag with other users to find similar users?
+ When performing a search, look for the most popular bookmarks and the most unpopular to find more esoteric and possibly interesting items.
+ An RSS feed for people who bookmarked the same thing I did: as a way to find new people who share the same interests as you.
1. There isn't enough margin on the left side of the page. The text bumps up right against the edge of my browser. I don't know if this is just an oversight due to me smaller screen size (1024x600) or if everyone sees it like that.
2. The main page has horizontal scrolling on my netbook with fullscreen Chromium.
Edit: I reduced it a bit; should fix those issues.
Signed in using Twitter OAuth, imported my Delicious backup, completely painless.
Now if you release an API and people make awesome Chrome/Firefox extensions, you're on your way to sell this beauty to Yahoo! :P
Edit: Looks like the Settings page is a bit broken, but I'm sure it'll be fixed soon. Bonus points if you import my profile data from Twitter. :)
And hey, if Yahoo wanted to buy it, I'd be more than willing to let them kill it for the right price. At which point I could write another. :P
I do some minor profile import from Twitter right now (just your name, if available), but the data's cached locally if I add profile fields in the future.
The settings page is busted because of a fix I just made - Devise doesn't seem to like delegated auth accounts without a password. I'll see what I can do to fix it up.
Unless I guess, you could think of some smart way to have the social networking expanding over multiple sites smoothly.
It's broken right now (Won't import my book marks, refers to me as "4d0c26c34caddf4914000003!") - but I'm looking forward to trying it out.
You can change your displayed name in the settings. :)
Likely CRTs and income (and ECPm) will drop off sharply as it gets bigger.
Looks good otherwise, especially for a overnight hack.
Edit: Max length bumped to 80. If anyone has a legit need past that, let me know :P
(But that's a fair point; that's one of 3 images I used on the site)
Edit: Logo is now text. Only the import/bookmarklet and twitter buttons are images now. :)
The import bookmarks, and bookmarklet links had a:hover text-dec underline, which creates an out of place underline on Chrome.
It may be also a good idea to let people import their bookmarks and then make an account.
Edit: I see now that in the But... section you mention the import thing. I'd rewrite your main headings to be more persuasive. If one just reads the titles and the first paragraph then one misses the important stuff (as evidenced by my post).
Edit: Also it appears to be down atm.
You can do a bookmarks export from Chrome to HTML, then import that HTML file. All the browsers use the standard Netscape bookmarks file format, AFAIK.
no offense, but don't post until you have the basic stuff together... people don't give you that many chances to impress
Point humbly taken, though I'll try to get those fixed up ASAP.
(I used a new authentication framework on this project and haven't quite gotten my head around the edges, it seems)
