1. Hit the Essential Video Games lists and go crazy!
Chances are if you're an internet junkie then you either currently play or have played video games. With GetGlue's recent addition of the Essential Video Games lists you can show your enjoyment of your current obsession or dig up some of the forgotten relics of the past, regardless of your favorite genre.
2. Check-in to your favorite shows and check-out some sweet discounts on merch!
GetGlue partners with some of the best networks to get you some killer discounts on fan merchandise. Fox, HBO, MTV, FX, and Discovery are only a few of the networks that will hook you up via GetGlue, so have a look at your (or someone else's) favorite shows and see if there's a bonus discount.
3. Share your top picks for your favorite entertainment of 2010
Got a favorite TV show or movie you want the users of GetGlue to know about? Itching to sing the praises of your favorite band or video game? Hit GetGlue's blog and cast your votes for the top picks of 2010!
4. Check out GetGlue on Facebook and Twitter
GetGlue's Twitter feed is an excellent source of information on upcoming sticker releases as well as a great way to get in touch with the support team if you have a quick question. Throwing up a Like on their Facebook page is also a great way to show your support for the site!
5. Check-out the e-mail feature on GetGlue
This one is a feature that was pointed out to me by another user (thanks Sabrina!). Ostensibly it's supposed to be used to tell your friends about GetGlue and its pages, but it can be used to send an e-mail to another GetGlue user if you know their user name or e-mail address. You'll find the link for it on the Home Page, your Messages page, and your Profile page; it looks like a little envelope, right beside the Twitter and Facebook icons. Click on it and you'll get a screen where you can enter an email or a user name. If you enter a GetGlue user name (not their screen name, but their actual account name) you can use it to send them an email message. The message you included will be turned into a link back to your profile, but in the absence of a private messaging system it's a nice work-around to be able to send someone a message that you don't want everyone and their dog to see.
And lastly, one non-GetGlue related site I'd like to pimp: score.ly. Score.ly is an online scorecard that lets you have a central repository for your online milestones and achievements. It's as easy as signing up for an account and then linking in your other social media accounts. Within a couple hours to a couple days they'll get your stuff linked up and start keeping track of your achievements/badges/stickers/pins for you. You can find mine at http://www.score.ly/@TechParadox. Have a look, see what you think, and if you dig it, sign up!
