Another tool for attracting bloggers to your site.
I heard about Scoutle at vjacks’s Atheist Revolution blog, he seems to think this might be the next big thing. Social networking without any of the hard work. However until wordpress let you stick scripts into the sidebar widgets there are going to be some of us missing out.
As you can see below I can’t even get it to work when embedded in a post. It definitely won’t work in the sidebar on my wordpress hosted blog. Any ideas anyone?
If anyone is interested in joining Scoutle it’s quite simple and once you’re logged in you can join a few groups/networks. I suggest joining the Networks/Common Interest/Religion & Spirituality/Atheists first as this is where, hopefully, we will all end up.
One of the problems I see with these sort of sites is the numerous different but similar groups/networks that one can join. This can lead to not getting everyone of the same interest into the one group. Hopefully the above network will become the common, and only, one for atheists.
I have also found some of the navigation a bit lacking, and some of the connection/network functions aren’t exactly intuitive.
Scoutle are promising a new version, Scoutle 2, in September.
It will be so much better, more beautiful and there are a lot of new services in it as well!
Lets hope it will work on wordpress hosted blogs.
