I Slingpage, do you?

slingpageIf you haven’t heard, one of the newest Instant Social Bookmarking applications is Slingpage. Still in it’s infancy, but gaining ground, this application allows friends and or subscribers to instantly be alerted when someone sends, or ‘slings’, a web page or video.

So why do I think this could get big? Well, personally I like the idea that I can be updated on the newest sites, news, or whatever online. It’s kind of like Twitter meets StumbleUpon. Also, I can see all the slings I’ve made or the slings that others have sent me. Slingpage stores my Favorite Slings or my Web Dev Tips Slings in a place where anyone can subscribe.

Two things I don’t like about this application:

1) The fact that only certain slingcasts, subscriptions to pages you may like, are shown from slingpage’s site.
2) I can only invite my friends from other applications like facebook instead of searching for them and adding them to slingpage.

I’m sure that as more people sign up this will change.

Well, I have got to go sling some more pages. If you make slingpage part of your social networking applications, be sure to add me as a friend and sling some good pages my way.

    Peter, thank you for visiting Atilus.com. It’s good to hear that you are already working on improving the discovery of every Slingcast. I’m sure this will be a very popular feature.

    It would be great to see Slingpage have a friend search like LinkedIn where we can see friends from other networks (like facebook, linkedin, gmail) and add them as Slingers.

    I look forward to seeing Slingpage rise to the top of the social networking sites. Best of luck. If we can be of assistance to you please let us know.

    Hi Jermaine, Thanks so much for your article and for giving Slingpage a try. We really appreciate your interest and enthusiasm. I am Peter Weinberg, CEO for Slingpage and I would like to address the items where you think we need work. On both items, we fully agree with the notion of providing better and easier ways to discover new content (Slingcasts) and other Slingers. Improving discovery is a natural evolution from where we are today and we are actively working to ensure every Slingcast is readily accessible. On the second item, we currently provide a search feature on a per user basis. To search for Slingers from the Slingpage Website check out the search box on the top right side of any page. Thanks again for your support!
