Collactive

Depending on your point of view, Collactive is either a naughty way to game the system, or an interesting way of ‘pushing’ hot topics out to interested readers. Born of the ashes of an Israeli spam fighting team, the system allows you to create a link to an article, video, website etc and push out an ‘APB’ promoting it. The idea being that you can push up stories on Digg, Reddit, the BBC and so on.

I came across it when researching alternative promotional methods for the site (created a sample link here). I’m not sure that the gaming system itself can’t be gamed. Or that large volumes won’t swamp people with too much info. However, if they then allow subscription by channel, tag or interest then that has a lot of potential and removes a lot of the passive (and time-consuming) searching for interesting items that people do now on sites like Digg.

There’s a widget too. Not sure if this will work:

Twitter, Facebook, Myspace etc …..

Hello,

Just to let you know that the members section now allows you to associate your profile with various other sites such as LinkedIn, Digg, Facebook, Yahoo!, Twitter etc (currently 10 sites).

So, if you’re keeping multiple personalities on multiple sites, you can link to them from your member homepage. You can also choose to show links to just your TC friends.

Working on tighter integration through the site APIs, but if you use Twitter, give it a whirl as that will automatically show your picture and current status message on your member page. Look out for the ‘networks’ tab.

You can see an example of this in action here

Did we miss any major networks? (netscape ..?)
