The blog area here is starting to get all tarted up with new buttons and badges kinda like a NASCAR sportscar. So here’s an explanation of all these clicky things. In the upper right corner of each comic post, you’ll see a Flattr button. Flattr is sort of like a micro-donation site that lets users “flatter” content that they like. When you create an account, you can put in a set amount of money that will be distributed evenly to all the sites that you “flatter.” If you flatter one site, that site gets all your money. If you flater ten, your money gets divided evenly into ten bits. Money is distributed at the end of each month. Here’s a video from the Flattr guys to explain it a little better.
The Flattr button only appears on comic posts. Bellow the Flattr button and on the top right of every post here at YP is the tweetmeme button. When you click this bad boy, it sends the post to your twitter account so you can share with your all your friends. It also keeps track of how many times the post gets linked on twitter. I use this when a new comic goes up so you’ll typically see at least a number one in the tweet badge.
Below each post is the new Facebook Like button. If you’re already logged into Facebook, clicking the Like button will send the post to your recent activity on your Facebook profile and share what you liked with the world. I’ve also hooked up the Like button the right sidebar which will share the site with your recent activity.
So if you enjoy YP and want to spread it like a disease or want to support the comic, that’s what all those clicky badgy things are for.
