Lately we have learned that people love automatic flattring based on activites. It has sprung a small world of awesome services that makes your flattring as easy as automatic!
Flattr by just consuming
The beauty of these services are that they will let you flattr just by doing the things you already do. Like hearting a photo on Instagram, favorite a tweet on Twitter, watching a repository on Github. One service even flattrs articles you star in Readability, Google reader and Instapaper if possible. No need for special software, addons or copy/paste, just use your standard client, heart/bookmark/star/favorite and your done!
There are right now three services that we know of, FlattrStar by Markus Heberling, SuperFav by Udo Kramer and FancyFav by David Pfahler. While the functionality they offer is similar, the services they support differs slightly. At the time of writing these are as follows.
This is just the beginning, we will add more connections to flattr making these services able to do even more. Naturally you can support these services through flattr.
Remember that if you flattr someone that has not signed up to flattr these flattrs will be unclaimed flattrs waiting for the users to sign up and collect them. So don’t forget to remind them to join flattr!
