Some recent updates to Tipjoy
It's always busy at Tipjoy HQ. We're always working to add new features to the service.
Early on, we made a bookmarklet that lets you tip any page while you're on it, even if they don't have a Tipjoy button. Lots of people still don't know this. So check it out here.
We've worked on how we showcase content on Tipjoy. We want to highlight all that great stuff:
- Featured sites that have started using Tipjoy
- The most popular sites that have made the most money
- The 'Just Tipped' page, which lists the newest and hottest content
We're working to make Tipjoy more social. One aspect of this is making tipping public. You can see everyone that has tipped Rescue Time (a service I obsessively use). You can also see everything a single user has tipped. Here is my stream.
You can set your tips to be public on your settings page.
We've also syndicated most of these pages with RSS. Just click on the RSS icon where ever you see it:
Finally, we've incorporated Disqus to power comments on Tipjoy. I think we can even take this a step further by feeding too and from comment streams on sites that use Disqus. I hear they're working on something to support this.
Ohh, and you can follow us on twitter here to get more updates. I have a pretty exciting idea of how to integrate Tipjoy with Twitter. It'll be chocolate & peanut butter or gin & tonic. Look for it soon.
