5 Tips for Setting Up Your RebelMouse Page

RebelMouse, the new social homepage tool that’s been making the rounds on Twitter, is already starting to get some feedback from early testers of the site. The creators have responded with 5 helpful tips for getting started, which are listed here in order of urgency.

1. When one page is not enough, here’s how to make two.
The number one issue seemed to be in attaching the same account to more than one profile. If you want to put up one page for yourself and another one for your book club, just log in with your Twitter account. Don’t try this with the company’s Facebook page, as you can only use a Facebook page once. If you’ve already done this, here are instructions on how to delete your account and start over again, compliments of RebelMouse.

2. Find lost posts by clicking on the “drafts” tab.
For reasons only known to the computer, sometimes a post will be deemed unacceptable and relegated to the “drafts” section of your dashboard. (Most likely because you tweeted something without adding a picture.) If you’d like these posts to appear on the front end, just go in and click “publish.” Tip: the drafts show up in reverse chronological order, so scroll all the way down to see the most recent ones.

3. Add a “Stick” bookmarklet to your browser so you can add things to your page other than social media posts.
It’s similar to the “pin it” button and a million other bookmarklets you’ve used. You can do it, no problem!

4. Flesh out your Twitter bio with an email signature, as well as your Facebook and LinkedIn URLs.
This is supposed to be your homepage so make sure your followers know who you are and where to find you. You can also add your RebelMouse URL to your bio on Twitter by clicking on the “update now” button.

5. Find other people to look at and follow.
There’s an “also on RebelMouse” box that shows you who else is currently using the platform. It’s similar to the “people you may know” function on Facebook or LinkedIn.

RebelMouse is still a work in progress, but for people who are active on social media sites, it seems to be a good alternative to a static website. Click here for more tips.
