    @zeke2100 – Thank you for the helpful feedback.  You brought up some valid concerns regarding how socioclean works. I hope my response below helps ease some of your concerns.
    To access your accounts we actually leverage the facebook functionality “Flink” (Facebook connect) – Flink is a facebook supported and approved feature for 3rd party applications to access account information to enable the use of their service. Similar functionality is available for other social networking sites as well, commonly used for apps, games and other web 2.0 related programs (i.e. Farmville, texas hold’em).
    Also socioclean does not store any account information what so ever. But we understand your POV and we may have to better highlight this information during the connection process.
    Again we at socioclean are against the “big brother” method employed by similar services – we only manage the connection behind scenes but the actual service is self-governed so only you – the user sees the results of the scan. You run the scan, we provide the analytics (i.e. trends, illicit words) and you make the necessary cleansing updates to your profile. Your data is your property and we do everything to make sure the scan is carried out in the most secure and safe way.

    @Sierra12346 – First thank you for taking the time to review and provide feedback on socioclean.
    We’ve initially rolled out the service only on facebook because facebook houses the largest number of social media users on the web – it also give us a good platform to work out any kinks/issues before we roll out to the other social networking sites. We plan to rollout functionality for twitter next, followed by MySpace – the launch date for twitter users is the first week of Jan 2011.

    We are currently updating the “about us” section to provide an additional leave about the detail. Also you are 100% right about the location of the news feed – we are currently updating the site so the news feed is visible before the sign-up page.

    We’ll also try to post more real-life work stories of social media mishaps on the website – we currently post them regularly on twitter. Great feedback! Thank you!

    Thanks Shae! – The phone number on the contact page is something we may need to re-visit.

    During the creation and go-live of the site we didn’t see a need for the phone number but the traffic over the past month has increased (1000 + registered users) tremendously and it may be time for us to post a phone number to better support our users

    Visit http://www.socioclean.com Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think the site is about?

    Providing social media users with the ability to clean up their digital identity.

    Now go back to the site and comment on various elements of the site.

    I hit try it free. Before I give you my info, I need to know what SocioClean does *explicitly. I think you’ll get a higher bounce rate without a detailed description.

    What do you find bothersome? What do you like?

    No need for Team AND About Us to be in Nav Menu. Boil it down to one tab. The color scheme and overall branding reflects your startup’s purpose beautifully.

    What do you think of the sign up process?

    Like I said, I wouldn’t sign up unless I knew more about what I’m signing up for.

    Would you sign up for a free trial/free account? If not, why?

    Same answer. Need to word your Q’s better.

    How do you think the site compares to other similar sites/competitors?

    I don’t know of any competition. You should list competition when asking for feedback.

    I found the use of that much bright blue distracted from the site. Also, it would help to write somewhere exactly what is supposed to happen. I did like the graphical layout, but with a different color scheme that might affect this. I take care of my social networks already so it wouldn’t be something I would use.
