Shake It, Baby! April 26, 2011 2:07 PM   Subscribe

Would it be possible to add Mlkshk to the list of social apps we can add to our profiles? No rush, obvs. Thank you in advance for looking at this shaken, but not stirred pony!

It's not out of beta yet, though I hear it's close. But probably not til then at least. The protocol is to add it to the SocialStuffs page on the wiki, pb does a sweep through there every so often.

Whoops, take it back, this is on the page already with the pb comment "Love mlkshk but it suffers from the Tumblr, Posterous, et al problem of no real profile pages. Things are changing there every day right now, so maybe down the road if they add profile pages. "

In the meantime you can include a link to your Mlkshk in your profile description. Or maybe we could trade links in this thread.

Don't they know that by the Law of Internet Site Naming they should be Milkshakr or something like that?

Ahhhh. Okay, thank you. :)

I have one of those accounts (thanks, GG!) but I don't know what to hell to do with it. Images uploaded to it don't show up in the viewing pane of Twitter feeds, and the Android app for Twitter is not provisioned for custom uploads. It's a tidy little interface and image sharing site, but it just feels kind of like another gas station at an already crowded intersection. What's the angle with Mlkshk that I'm missing?

Yeah, what is it for, anyway? I got an invite and created an account just so no one else could camp my handle, but I'm not really sure why I would ever use it....

Would it be possible to add some vowels to Mlkshk? Still trying to figure out what it has to do with Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I got an invite and created an account just so no one else could camp my handle...."

I got an account for the same reason, but someone had already registered your handle.

i use my shake to collect gifs and art and funny things and cute things. sometimes i share the url, sometimes i inline the image at other internet hangouts, sometimes i get in conversations on mlkshk about particular uploads.

There are a million of these sites. Okay, maybe only 463, but still.

I have a shake but it's not very shook.

Drink your mlkshk?

Is this a tumblr clone?

Mlkshk is cool and frothy and sweet. I like the mlkshk.
posted by stavrosthewonderchicken at 5:12 PM on April 26, 2011


I'd take an invite is someone has one to spare. Or a $20. I'm not picky.
posted by cjorgensen at 5:40 PM on April 26, 2011


I'll spare you one for $20.
posted by Burhanistan at 5:46 PM on April 26, 2011


Here's mine. I don't know how much of Mlkshk is a clone because I've never done the image-sharing thing before. But once you get a decent number of friends sharing interesting/funny/cute/weird/thoughtful pictures, checking Mlkshk as an occasional 5 minute distraction can be pretty fun. The "Incoming!" section is great too.

Message me your email address if you want an invite. (I just sent you one, cjorgensen.)

Gah. The internet clearly needs a strategic stockpile of website names that actually make sense.

Yay! I signed up. Thanks. Now someone send me that $20. It's cortex's birthday!
posted by cjorgensen at 6:18 PM on April 26, 2011


Oh yeah I've got a few invites. I'm jessamyn over there. IM me if you'd like one in the next hour or so.
posted by jessamyn (staff) at 6:25 PM on April 26, 2011


I've got 99 invites (but a ***** ain't one).

Seriously, just MeFi mail me your email address and I'll send off an invite code to you.

I was thinking "My Shake" is pretty much akin to our Flickr profile thing. I'd love to be able to add my shake to my profile.

I'm sure it would bring us all to the yard.
posted by jonmc at 6:51 PM on April 26, 2011


I just created a shake thanks to jessamyn.

For those who are curious but not curious enough to get an account it's basically tumblr but limited to photo/video posts. It does have a different 'feel' though.

Oops. Sorry, this is me. :)
posted by zarq at 7:22 PM on April 26, 2011


I have invites, as well. Here I am. I usually just use it for stuff I'm going to tweet, since it integrates neatly with the Twitter iPhone app.
posted by pjern at 7:27 PM on April 26, 2011


Here's mine!

Oh, also: I've got five invites - hit me up on memail with your for email address and I'll send them along.

I haven't really figured out what to do with mlkshk either, but feel free to hit me up for invites invitations.

I'm here there. I have made things complicated for myself by using my other username.
posted by safetyfork at 10:39 AM on April 27, 2011


I'm here. I haven't started posting to it yet... I do like the idea of using it as a Twitpic alternative, since I find Twitpic really irritating, but it seems like a lot of effort for not very much return to migrate over.

I've got one invite left.

My last three posts were somehow Batman related.

This is all the MLKSHK news I have at present.

Well, I just signed up.

I have acquired a MLKSHK at the same username I have here. The email said someone had sponsored me, so if it was you, thanks!
