|What is SnipShare?|
SnipShare is a social media dashboard and content library, that helps you organize social media information. You can add content from the library, delete content you don't want and add your own. There's so much information bombarding us today, we thought that a place to pull together the information was a good idea. It's up to you what SnipShare will be. We love suggestions, so send them along.
A great benefit of SnipShare is that you can enjoy the benefits of Facebook, Flickr, Twitter and more, without even having to join those websites.
Watch our Overview Video.
Why should I become a member?
Because with a 30 second registration (even faster if you choose to connect through Facebook or Twitter), you can add all your own favorite sites, profiles, news feeds and video channels, get rid of stuff you don't need, select entire pre-populated tabs from our library, and more. You'll love it, give it a try.
How can I become a member?
Just fill out a very short form and you can access 100% of the features. Or, if you have a Facebook or Twitter account, click the Connect button and follow a few short steps to create a SnipShare account through Facebook or Twitter.
What are the different widget types?
There are several different widget types, and more to come as the site grows. Here's some information on the most popular kinds:
Social Media Personal Feeds
You can add a pre-populated tab, or an individual widget to any tab, to view your personal Facebook News Feed, or Twitter Stream. Both allow you to post/tweet, view your feed, respond to friends, and more. And both include a tool to shorten links.
You can also add a pre-populated LinkedIn tab, where you can access your personal account.
Facebook (Watch How to Add Facebook Widgets)
Twitter (Watch How to Add Twitter Widgets)
- Facebook Fan Profiles: These are the official pages of businesses, magazines, celebrities, and newspapers. This is the information that comes directly from the companies or organizations. If you're logged into Facebook, you can "Like" these pages from the widgets on SnipShare. (When adding your own Fan widget, you'll need to know the url for that Facebook page.)
- Most Recent Facebook: This is an initiative of Facebook where "like" buttons are put on almost every site on the Internet. These widgets show what is most popular among those who are recommending or "liking" articles and posts on any website. If you're logged into Facebook, you'll even be able to see which items your friends like and recommend. (When adding your own "Most Recent" widget, enter the url of the site you wish to follow.)
Video Channels (Watch How to Add Video Channels)
- Twitter Profile Widget: These widgets are the official widgets of a person, personality or company. (When adding your own Profile widget, just add the Twitter user name for the profile you wish to follow.)
- Twitter List Widget: These widgets display the most recent tweets from all profiles included in a Twitter List. (When adding your own List widget, just add the end of the url for the List page, which will include a user name and list name.)
- Twitter Search Widget: These widgets allow you to follow a subject across all twitter feeds. Just use the keywords that you want to follow and the widget will do the rest.
These widgets display the latest video entries of YouTube Channels. (When adding your own channels you can either enter the url for a channel page, or create a custom channel using keywords.

Why can I see my friends information in the Facebook Most Recent widgets?
Content on this site comes from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and various blogs. SnipShare is not responsible for content that is offensive, harmful, inaccurate or otherwise inappropriate, or in some cases, postings that have been mislabeled or are otherwise deceptive.

Can I choose different tabs, or add my own?
Yes, you can. Just click on the + icon at the end of your tab menu to display a list of all available tabs. Check or uncheck the tabs you want to add or remove, in the list on the left. There are several tabs called "My Tab" and you can add those to start with a blank tab. Drag and drop the items in your list of selected tabs on the right to get them in the order you want, then close the list layer to save your changes. If you've added too many tabs to fit on the screen, or if your tab names are too long, arrows will appear at either end of the tabs menu so you can scroll through your tabs. (You can make changes to your chosen tabs, order, names, etc, at any time.)

Can I change the names of my tabs?
Yes, just click the pencil on each tab. If you've added too many tabs to fit on the screen, or if your tab names are too long, arrows will appear at either end of the tabs menu so you can scroll through your tabs. Within the layer that opens, you'll also be able to remove that tab, or access the page to manage all tabs.
How do I add widgets from the library?

Can I move/delete widgets?
You can drag and drop widgets within any tab or just click the "X" in the upper right of each widget to delete. Widgets that have been borrowed from our library will remain in the library and you can re-add them later if you choose. Any custom content will be lost if you delete that widget.
How does drag and drop work?

As you move the widget, a dotted box will appear in the closest area it can be dropped in. Keep dragging until the box appears in the space you want, then when you cursor is in the new dotted box, let go. Your tab doesn't have enough columns? Keep reading for infomation on how to add more.
I have a high resolution monitor and would like to take advantage of my wide screen. Can I?
