Tint Vs RebelMouse: David Vs. Goliath of Social Feeds?

Tint Vs RebelMouse – Showing Off Your Social Feeds

Tint is another site that offers you a way to display your social profile feeds just about anywhere. It is similar to RebelMouse but you can do 2 different profile feeds at once in the FREE version. I like that option! One sign in and you can go between 2 different social accounts.

 

What Tint Offers You for FREE

  • Tint offers you 2 social profiles in the FREE version – nice to be able to go back and forth very easily between 2 profiles.
  • Tint offers you 2 social profiles to chose from, if you want more than that and you must pay or get referrals for an upgrade.
  • Mobile View.
  • Analytics to see how Tint is working for you.

Upgrade For More Features From Tint 

  • Get more social profiles for your feeds – up to 7 right now.
  • Create different style feeds including sliders.
  • Google+ coming soon.
  • Custom Designs.
  • 24/7 Customer Support.
  • Facebook Tab Embed. Makes it easy to be social on Facebook!
  • Hashtag Connections.

Tint Vs Rebelmouse: David Vs. Goliath?

So which do you think is better? With the FREE version I believe you get more from RebelMouse. (if you don’t mind seeing possible ads)  But when you look at the premium versions they are very close. RebelMouse is less of an investment. We must remember RebelMouse has a much larger team vs. the newer Tint. BUT  Tint does offer Referrals. And referrals can bring you upgrades for NO cost! All you have to do is UNLOCK the features.

Tint vs Rebelmouse – Both Tint and RebelMouse  offer custom CSS design, embed controls and custom front pages for your blog or website. Tint has been around now for 7 months. Tint has clients such as : NFL, NBA, Williams-Sonoma, Nasdaq and more!

Tint vs Rebelmouse – What Else Sets Tint Apart From RebelMouse?

Social Media Walls for Events! You can use Tint on a TV monitor to display the event’s official Facebook feed, the speaker’s Twitter feed, a  sponsor’s Instagram photos, or even tweets/photos your attendees are sharing via hashtags  that you specify. Check out their social media wall events here.

This is what the CEO Tim Sae Koo of Tint has to say on why you should sign up for Tint today:

Bloggers should sign up because it may take a long time to create content for your blog and thus your readers will not see a reason to return on a daily basis. You can easily resolve this by embedding Tint into your existing blogs with your own content, UGC via hashtags, or any other sources that revolve around your industry. The result is a social, updated site with fresh news whenever a visitors lands on your blog.”

    Hi Lisa,

    Looks pretty interesting :)

    Yes, I’ve just about heard only about Tint earlier, though never about Rebel Mouse, so I really have no idea whatsoever about both of these, but I understood a little here and more I would once I head over to their site and see. But can’t you do the same through Hootsuite, or is that different as you can manage your social profiles and feeds there too I think, though that again I barely use for Twitter mainly as I prefer keeping my other profile updates different from Twitter.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead :)

      Hi Harleena, these are quite diffeerent than Hootsuite. Hoosuite is a social management tool. These are aggregation sites that can put all your profiles together and constantly update your feeds. You can use them for front page of your blog or with Tint as an event page. There seem to be more of them popping up. I hope you check out the one at Ms. Ileane’s place too and see which you like best. You can set them up and forget them. They will do the work for you :) Or you can use them for more things too. Have a great weekend ahead Harleena.

      Hey Harleena,

      Tim, CEO of Tint, here. Yes as Lisa mentioned, Hootsuite is about managing your social media feeds in one place. Tint is all about aggregating your feeds and then letting you display it on your website so you won’t have to worry about manually updating your site anymore. Rather, just keep sharing on your social networks and it will automatically update onto your site.

      The result is a dynamic site always updated with new content for your visitors :).

  • These apps remind me of what HootSuite Pro has to offer. Similar, yes? I like the idea of everything being in one place – organized, clean, simplified. (Of course, if I delete my Facebook account, which I strongly considered this morning, it will be a moot point. ;-) )

      Hi Ellen, no. Hootsuite is a social media management tool and these “other” sites are social media aggregation sites. They are easy to set up, they pick up your feeds and update them constantly for you. You can set them up and forget about them or use them for things like front pages of your blog or events. They are very flexible, that’s what I love abou them. Oh No, why delete your FB account Ellen?

    Hi Lisa,

    Thanks for the post. Beautiful and attractive as always. Now, about the content:

    1. The idea of having a section or a zone of my blog where I can have news in my niche or industry appearing automatically on a daily basis is extremely interesting and tempting. I am constantly searching for something that can provide me this.

    2. Did you embedded Tint into your blog? If yes, how did you do it? Is there some kind of code you can insert in a widget?

    Have a nice day

      Hey Silviu,Tim (CEO of Tint) here and wanted to help answer your question.Firstly, glad you find the idea of having fresh, updated news in your industry feeding into a section of your blog interesting . That\’s our forte and we can provide that for you. Secondly, to have your own Tint in your site, you would need to sign up with Tint, connect ANY social media feed (doesn\’t have to be your own feeds and can be a hashtag), and then we\’ll give you an HTML embed code to paste into your site.Let me know if this makes sense.

      Thanks Silviu for checking it and and inquiring. I see Tim answered your questions :) I did not embed it Silviu. It would be interesting to see it though. I like the idea of using a special page for it and maybe not the homepage. I did see many samples of it on their site though. You can get creative with them. Have a wonderful day there!

    I was unsure about Tint as I was reading along with your post but the video you shared has me thinking about this now. :) Thanks for telling us about this. I’m definitely going to check this out :)

    Hope you’ve been having a great week Lisa! Talk to ya in the social media world :)

      Thanks Corina, I’m not laughing – I’m crying (Only Kidding!) :) They are content aggregators. They pick up your feeds that you supply and update them automatically and put them in a pretty format. You can do more with them too, use them as a front page of your blog or website, use them for events, etc. They are easy to set up and go. You can get traffic via them and backlinks are nice too. Thanks for coming by and for your input Corina.

    Lisa,

    You’re not going to make me join yet another social site are you? To be honest, I set up RebelMouse yet rarely go there. I have some of my feeds going to it and get a daily email and when it’s updated but I really haven’t found much use for it.

    Between the two, which do you prefer and find more useful?

      Bren, that’s the beauty of them. You don’t have to go back there, they automatically update your feeds! And they give you backlinks too. I really like them both as they are easy to set up and not time consuming. I will see which brings traffic in next few weeks Bren. Thanks for coming by.

      Hey Bren,

      Tim (CEO of Tint) here. We’re not just another social site, we are more of a tool. The point of Tint is to embed it inside your website, so you’ll always have an updated site with your or other’s social content. No more static, stale site.

      The reason why you don’t see much point of Rebelmouse is because they are trying to be another social network, asking you to visit it often. We’re not like that at all.

      You set up your Tint with your or other’s social feeds, embed it into your site, and let it update automatically. Now your visitors will always have new, fresh content to see on your site without you needing to do anything anymore.

      Let me know if that makes sense,
      Tim

  • Sorry to say this Lisa but I was really confuse to make clear make identity but while reading slowly slowly I little come to understand it :) finally happy to connect with this post.

    Hi Lisa

    I’ve got a Rebelmouse account and I’ll sign up for a Tint account too.

    I like the idea of getting more backlinks, although I’m not sure whether I’d embed the feed into my blog.

    I tried Repost.us for content syndication but when I did, no-one left a comment. I think it would work better if I had more content but I got scared off!

    So, I’ve gone off the idea of embedding things all together.

    Lisa,
    I’ve been meaning to check out RebelMouse but I had not heard about Tint. That sounds like it would be worth checking into. I like your answer to Silviu about setting up a special page for the feed. I can see a lot of potential in that. I’m so glad I chose today to drop by your blog! :)

      Hey Sherryl,

      Tim here from Tint. Yes, many of our brand customers embed Tint onto their front page or on a special dedicated subpage. The goal is to provide fresh, social content automatically onto your blog.

      Let me know if you have any other questions! tim@tintup.com

    I think I have a Tint account. Is there also a Tynt? As with most of these services I’ve signed up for, I didn’t know how to use it. Thank you for demystifying another website tool. I think I also have RebelMouse account. I’m receiving their newsletter. I can’t keep track of everything I’ve signed up for. Thank God you’re here to make sense of it all.

  • Adrienne

    says:

    Call me still confused Lisa but I have no idea what either of these are or what they do. I’ve heard the name RebelMouse and had one girl I know tell me to sign up but she never told me what the heck it was or why I would waste my time.

    So trying to figure it out a little after reading your post is it just like one conveniently located place to handle more then one social account? Like you can check what’s going on with Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, whichever accounts you assign. Of course you said the free version you only get a couple accounts but am I on the right page?

    I guess I’m just so use to going into each account that I’m okay with that. I think if I could see everything in one place then I might be spending more time there which would not be a good thing.

    Thanks for the information and I look forward to your reply. Glad Ileane got you to doing another video. Good for you.

    Now, you enjoy your weekend okay!

      Hi Adrienne, I know, it can be confusing – so many things we are learning every day online. These type of sites are called “content aggregators”, they take your info (feeds) and update it. All your social accounts and blogs.They also update all your shares. They also give you high PR backlinks to your website. You can eaasily set them up and go. You can also do more like make them a front page or any page on your website to make it more social or with Tint us it for events. You can sign up to see someone’s elses updates (competitors, etc. ) via email. I do that on my retail account just to double check my own stuff :)
      So it’s NOT like a Hootsuite, Seesmic or tweetdeck.
      I hope you have a nice weekend Adrienne and get your internet provider all straightened out.

    I love both Tint and RebelMouse equally. The only problem I have is that the embed slows down your page.

    Yes, I think i have just heard about Tint here and now, though never heard anything about Rebel Mouse, so I really have no idea whatsoever about both of these apps, so i will take a tour to their site.

  • Shona says:

    I do not have a Tint account, but I’ve been using RebelMouse for a few months now. I have the free account. The biggest drawbacks I’ve encountered is limited styling options for your page and some technical glitches from time to time (such as hiccups with their ‘Shout Outs” feature). Other than that, I think it is great….especially to be free. The biggest advantages in my opinion are:

    1) Good control over the content that gets published to your page. You can restrict it by hashtag, connect a wide variety of accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, RSS, Pinterest…some others as well).
    2) A newsletter that emails your latest content to followers. A big plus in my case since my blog has no newsletter
    3) Designed to be embeded and shared. I have my RebelMouse page embeded on my personal website — it’s a great addition; especially since I do not update my blog so often — but I’m active on social media all of the time
