Search Your Shared Social Links Online with Trunk.ly

Trunk.ly connects to your social networks, monitors and collects the links that you find interesting across the social web. It automatically gathers all the links you share online and makes them available via a searchable web interface. Trunk.ly can connect to Twitter, Facebook and Delicious via built-in connectors, and as it can work with RSS feeds, and grab links from services such as Instapaper, Tumblr and Posterous.

Trunk.ly indexes the web pages these links point to and builds a personal search engine, so you never have to tag or describe a link again, you just search and Trunk.ly will find it again for you.[advt]

Twitter

The Twitter connector will store any links you share (or retweet) yourself from your home timeline. It does not extract links from your friends timeline. Any links in tweets that are favorited are also loaded into Trunk.ly. Trunk.ly stores Twitter hashtags as well.

When you first connect to Twitter, the connector will store up the last 3,200 tweets, as restricted by Twitter.

Facebook

Your ‘liked’ links with comments are stored in Trunk.ly. Links without comments cannot be extracted by the Facebook API and therefore not indexed in Trunk.ly.¬†Your shared links are available to the public if your Trunk.ly profile is public, which is the default.

Delicious

Trunk.ly connects to Delicous with your username and password to extract links using the Delicious API.
