When I was a kid, I remember those super glue commercials on TV — the one’s where they glue a guy’s hardhat to the bottom of a steel beam, and he’s hanging onto the hat, feet dangling in the air. There was something inherently cool about super glue that made kids especially want it. It opened up all sorts of possibility for fun. “Pssst… watch me glue this penny to the ground and we’ll see who tries to pick it up.”
Suprglu isn’t quite the same, but it does aim for stickyness. Suprglu is an personal aggregator. You’re connected. You’ve got your Flickr account. You’ve got a blog. You use del.ico.us and digg, 43places. You track your playlists on Last.fm. What’s left? Suprglu!
Basically, Suprglu is a meta-site. You continue to use all your other social media sites to post photos, save bookmarks, blog, etc., but you configure Suprglu to pull them all together in one place. You give it a style and Suprglu does the rest. It’s an interesting concept, but it struck me as something that can already be done with most blogs (and a little elbow grease). The advantage, of course, is that Suprglu makes it really, really easy.
I like the fact that it creates a single page with all the various feeds aggregated from their various sources. But I’m still not sure I need or want this. I’d much rather do this right here on my blog (and in fact, I have done bits of this in the past). Why send people to yet another place?
On the darker side, this will make the stalkers job MUCH easier. Remember kids, what you post online hangs around for a long, long time.
