Introducing Reclipper, The New Social Sharing Site On My Radar

Once you've got past the big ones, it sometimes seems there are hundreds of social networks out there. In case you had not noticed by now, I'm a bit of a social media junkie, so when a new social site gets in touch with me to see if I've heard about their new site, I can't wait to jump on it. Hell, I was on Twitter before so many other people thanks to the team at Channel 4 who got me excited about it, and Pinterest was just a small network of a couple of hundred when I was sent an invite. Today, I want to introduce you to my latest find: Reclipper

So, what exactly is Reclipper? Reclipper is essentially a site where you can collect all the things you like on the web together in one place. Yes, I know what you are saying, it sounds a lot like Pinterest. However, I think Reclipper is better depending on what you want to use it for. The pictures are bigger, and there is better focus on the content you can clip from different parts of the web. You can also write better descriptions, and all channels are collaborative so it can be a place to gather. I think this is great, however it would be great to have some personal ones too. 

Above you can see the channel I created to play around with Reclipper; Student Suppers. As you can probably guess, it was a place I could collect all my 'Student Suppers' recipes together to share them with people. I find this looks much nicer than if I had just given a link to my tagged recipes, so people can really browse. The ability to share some of your recipes on common channels where they fall into the categories, for example a barbecue skewer recipe on a barbecue channel; can help promote your work to a new audience. 

You can sign up to Reclipper here, and I'd love to hear what you think about it, and perhaps see you share some of your 'Student Supper' style recipes on my Student Suppers channel

  1. Looks a bit like if Google+ and Pinterest had a baby.

  2. Interesting, never heard of reclipper before. What will you do with your channel? Are you going to add new stuff there or was it rather a one-time thing?

  3. I'm not going to be updating it right now, but I do have some ideas for the future for it.
