Spacelocker is the place to meet friends and connect to online stuff.
Spacelocker isn’t just a website; it’s an evocative experience that is fun, free and functional. It will make it easy for you to meet and interact with friends. And it will help you organize your contacts, communications, information, and favourite websites.
What Spacelocker IS NOT
Spacelocker is not a place where you upload and store photos, videos, or music.
What Spacelocker IS
Spacelocker is a funky meeting place and social organizer—a free personal locker in cyberspace that helps you to interact with friends, and organize, connect and access your internet activities in one place.
How Spacelocker Works
First you must SIGN UP (free) to Spacelocker. There are two methods. The left side form lets you do this by simply using your existing Gmail, MSN, Yahoo, or AOL email address and existing password. Your email address is instantly verified. Using this method you can also choose whether or not to invite your friends from your address book. Or you can sign up on the right side form using any email address of yours (including webmail) and create a new password for Spacelocker. Here you will need to verify your email address by finding a verification email in your inbox or bulk/junk mail folder and follow the instructions. Your friends can only be manually added inside the locker if you choose this method. Once signed up you will need to provide some very basic information about yourself for your PROFILE/LOCKER PAGE before you go inside your locker.
At the same time you can also connect to the NETWORKS that you are already a member. This creates a live stream to your Facebook, Hi5, Bebo, Friendster, Picasa, Flickr, Photobucket, YouTube, Dizzler and last.fm accounts and lets you see the public portions in Spacelocker.
Then you will go inside your LOCKER. Once in your locker you will see 3 shelves with icons on each shelf representing things you might normally find inside a personal locker. There are also some functions on your locker door.
Once signed up you will need to provide some very basic information about yourself for your PROFILE/LOCKER PAGE before you go inside your locker.
Go to the PROFILE icon and upload a PICTURE. This will make it easy for old and new friends to meet and interact with you at the lockers. Your PROFILE is your own personal LOCKER PAGE. Here you can access your NEW MESSAGES in Spacelocker. Also here you can edit/update your personal information, tell others about yourself, upload a few additional pictures, change your email setting, and add more friends. On the locker page you can decorate your locker wall with cool widgets, graphics, videos, photos, or games.
If you did not connect your NETWORKS when you signed up, you can do this from your PROFILE/LOCKER PAGE as well. Connecting your Facebook, Hi5, Bebo, Friendster, Picasa, Flickr, Photobucket, YouTube, Dizzler and last.fm networks allows you and your friends to share the public sections of them in Spacelocker and to see your RECENT NETWORK ACTIVITY.
From the LOCKER THEME icon you can choose to keep the default locker theme for your locker or change it to another theme by clicking on your choice of theme and saving it.
Meet and interact with friends at the MEET ME AT MY LOCKER icon.
At the Meet Me At My Locker icon you will first go to the MEETING PLACE. The meeting place page is like the “hallway in front of the lockers”; full of different people with whom you can interact. There you will see a large group of Spacelocker users gathered; which changes each time you come back to the meeting place page. You can also see your Spacelocker friends, recent sign ups to Spacelocker and users who are currently at their lockers at the meeting place.
On the Meeting Place page there is a button called GO TO MY LOCKER PAGE which will take you to your profile/locker page. And there is a button to CHECK YOUR CLICKS, which tells you who has looked at your mini profile. Also there are 3 flags. One flag will take you to view your NEW MESSAGES in a message window. Another flag will take you to check your FRIEND INVITES, which shows you mini profiles of persons who are requesting to be your friend. And the last flag called RETURN YO MY LOCKER will take you back to your LOCKER.
When you click on users on the meeting place page who are already your friends, you will be taken to their locker page. Here you will be able to interact with them by sending them a message, a stikkmm, a sticky or a free virtual gift. You will also be able to decorate their locker page with widgets, graphics, videos, pictures, music, and games.
If you see someone on the meeting place page that is not already your Spacelocker friend, just click on their mini profile and click ADD AS FRIEND. They will be sent your mini profile and if they accept, you will be added to their Spacelocker friends list and be able to access their profile/locker page, and they will be able to access yours.
If you signed up with your existing Gmail, MSN, Yahoo, or AOL email address and existing password, you can choose whether or not to invite your friends. If you choose "yes" you will be given a chance to choose which friends you want to invite and once you confirm, your Spacelocker ADDRESS BOOK will be populated with all the friends you have chosen. If you signed up with an existing email address and created your own password, you will have to add or import friends manually using the ADD CONTACT feature in the address book.
Spacelocker does not store your PHOTOS. However with the ADD NETWORKS feature in your profile/locker page or in the photo window you can place on the photo page thumbnail photos that you have already saved and made public in a variety of online social and photo networks. By clicking on the thumbnail photo you will go to the network where that photo is saved and see a larger format. These photos can also be seen by your friends by them clicking on the appropriate network icon on your profile/locker page and following the same procedure.
Spacelocker does not store your VIDEOS. However with the ADD NETWORKS feature in your profile/locker page or in the video window you can place on your the video page thumbnail videos that you have already uploaded to your YouTube and Photobucket public favourites and playlist. By clicking on the YouTube video thumbnail the video will play right in the player on the video page window. For Photobucket videos a new window will open to play videos. These videos can also be seen by your friends by them clicking on the appropriate network icon on your profile/locker page and following the same procedure.
Spacelocker does not store MUSIC. However with the ADD NETWORKS feature in your profile/locker page or in the music window you can place on your music page either a thumbnail album cover or music player of music that you have already made a public favourite or playlist in Dizzler or last.fm. By clicking on the album thumbnail for last.fm the music will play in a new window or by clicking on the music player for Dizzler the music player will play in the music window. This music can also be listened to by your friends by them clicking on the appropriate network icon on your profile/locker page and following the same procedure.
