Meddle is a free micro-blogging service to designed to enhance your visibility and increase your social presence on the internet. Meddle was founded by Vidar Brekke CEO and Ballu Kommireddi CTO to provide an easy way to showcase your expertise.
I usually like to compare new services, but you cannot really compare Meddle to other free microblogging sites, such as Twitter or Tumbler because its actually more a mixture of both but with a little of StumbleUpon and Pinterest thrown in.
What is Meddle
Well, we’ve begun to explain what Meddle is – but lets explain more by showing what you can do with Meddle. Some people call it Pinterest for text, this is because it is very similar in the way that you share content and you know how easy Pinterest is. Meddle offer you a plug-in that so you can select, comment and share certain excerpts from articles, blogs or websites. First you drag the Bookmarket to your bookmark bar – You just highlight what you want to share – click the bookmarklet and a box pops up at the side of your screen. Here you can add your own comments including #hashtags (Its suggested that you post about 3/4 comment about why you chose this article) – and you then can publish it on your own Meddle page as a blogpost and then send it to Twitter, Facebook or Linkedin!
Super-fast Free Micro-Blogging Service
What I like about it is that its super-fast and easy to do – you don’t have to fill in url’s or add what section or topic you would like it in – Meddle does that all for you automatically. S so that when you go to look at your own content “The Meddles” on your own page are all there in easy to read sections. Visitors can view your page and comment or reshare your own Meddles to their own social networks.
There is also a community page where you can look for topics that you like, to either read, comment or also share them.
It very important to have an active social presence when building your business or a name for yourself, and we know that the content we share and how we share it is very important. Even though I’ve just been testing Meddle for a day or so already have a few followers and come great content on my page. I love how my public profile looks, see here. https://meddle.it/user/8a7416fd40405a81014045161bf60749/public hmm thats long isn’t it 🙂
It would be great to have a vanity URL … @ividar – I wonder if that is coming soon?

I believe Meddle is still infact in Beta, so there seems to be a lot of work still going on. If you have any problems or would like to suggest any features the suggest that you go to the Contact Page and tell them.
One of the features that should be available soon are analytics so that you can see how well your Meddles are performing, yes please!
So, I’m liking Meddle so far, why do you get your own Meddle Free Micro Blogging Service by clicking on the link at the top of the page, follow me and tell me what you think. Its easy to sign up – you can either use email, Twitter or Facebook to sign up, add your profile and you are away!
Happy Meddling 🙂
