It's begun: Zeadoo now in private beta testingThu, Jul 3rd 2008, 05:05
The official launch is one step closer.
We've just released a private beta version of Zeadoo, which will be undergoing some rigorous testing over the next week or two.
You might be thinking, how is Zeadoo different to any of the other personal homepages and bookmarking sites available?
Well here's the answer. The chief distinction between Zeadoo and other bookmarking sites is that Zeadoo gives you back control over your bookmarks and site sharing.
Social bookmarking sites have revolutionized the way people search the internet and share links, but there is a problem...
Not everyone wants everyone else to see their personal bookmarks.
There are countless times at work and socially when sending links publicly is damned awkward. We don't want everyone reading the helpful website we've found for the second cousin with the unusual rash, or looking over our shoulder (so to speak) as we throw ideas back and forth at work!
Zeadoo's not just about privacy though. We've also put a lot of work into making the site almost totally customizable. You can move things around, change the background and edit and delete things to your heart's content. It's going to be lots of fun to use as well as being immensely practical.
Stay tuned for more updates as we draw closer to the official launch or grab a tour of Zeadoo as well.
