The Problem

Lots of services accept URL-based content — social networks, news and bookmarking sites, communication tools, long-tail forums, translation and printing utilities — and more appear every day. Why do blogs still show chiclets for only the top few social networks? Why can't users engage with more personal, relevant, dynamically-discovered options? Why are sharing tools still "integrating" with services individually?

The Solution

OExchange makes it possible to share any URL-based content with any service on the web. It defines:

  • A common way for services to receive content, removing any and all service-specific integration requirements
  • A discovery feature so services can publish themselves and their endpoints, making it possible to integrate with services you didn't even know about at development time
  • A decentralized, user-centric model for saving preferred services, making sharing more personal
