Geekli.st Hits 50,000 Users
The idea of meeting on a website just to share a few achievements with other people isn’t new; gather.com did and a few other sites ran with the idea. But what sets Geekli.st apart from all sites before it is that it’s built by and supported by geeks.
The site was launched back in September last year and the growth has been somewhat measured but acceptable. Geeklist now boasts a chunky 50,000 members and the site has unveiled a slew of new features which should add more people to the Geeklist experience.
New features include a bookmarklet and link sharing capabilities—something the developers behind Geeklist are quick to point is different from most link sharing services out there.
Here’s the official line on why Geeklist’s link sharing is different: “Geeklist gives you the unique ability to tag them into their related categories, sending them not only to your personal links pages and the main stream, but right into the relevant categories you tag. If you want to see the latest links in any topic just visit the specific communities. You can also see the favorite links of developers and entrepreneurs you respect by visiting their profiles and clicking ‘view all my links’.”
Geeklist will no doubt continue to grow and it shouldn’t be too long before VC’s see its potential and give it some capital injection.
