What results is that you find all sorts of wonderful and weird lists including tourism advice, motivation tips, startup advice, book lists, movie lists and much more. There’s always new lists to check out, so it’s definitely somewhere you could head back to on a regular basis just to get a little more inspiration. Signing up at Snagsta only takes a moment, regardless of whether you create a log in or use Facebook Connect to log in. You’ll be ready to go in no time at all.
Browsing the lists can be done by categories listed at the bottom of all Snagsta pages, including some “best of” categories to let you quickly browse the popular lists.
When browsing lists, ensure you let Snagsta know if you like it. This will allow Snagsta to recommend better lists to you and to everyone else using Snagsta. Once you’ve liked three lists the recommendations will start. You can find them whenever you like by clicking Me > Recommendations.
Make Your Own Lists
Creating a list is straightforward – the “Create List” link is at the top of all Snagsta pages. Once you get to that page, it’s easy to see what you need to do. If you choose the bells and whistles option, you can add photos, video or links to each list item, making your list more interesting for everyone.
If you ask Snagsta, friends are key to the Snagsta experience, since these lists give you recommendations for all sorts of things, not limited recommending just music or book collections like most other social networks.
Personally, I think Snagsta is the sort of website where it doesn’t really matter if your friends use it or not, since you can easily explore community lists and share your favourite lists with social networking sites or email. There is an option to find your friends, but it asks for you to enter your email password “” I thought most startups these days knew better than that!
What Could Snagsta Do Better?
It would be great to see :
- personal RSS feeds.
- the ability to automatically send your own lists to Facebook and Twitter.
- the use of Facebook/Twitter/Gmail authentication to find your friends on Snagsta.
- the ability to embed a widget of a single list, my lists or my favourite lists (and would serve to advertise Snagsta).
- a Snagsta app for iPhone and Android “” it’s no doubt in the works already.
Listography and Listverse are similar listing services (and there are ), both of which seem to be using the lists people generate to write books on lists “” maybe that’s somewhere in the future for Snagsta, too.
