All the big sites are doing their own, like youtu.be and g.cn (google china) so why not a hukd one.
The links to a hukd deal can get quite long so it would be helpful, I have seen a domain that would suit the idea. You can use it to msn a link to someone, a blog post to it or even tweet / facebook about the deal.
This brings me onto my other idea, hukd have a twitter button that all members can use to tweet about a deal. It gains exposure for hukd and involves social media. I don't count the facebook app that's already involved as it does kinda suck (does anyone use it? lol).
anyone have any feedback on my ideas? :p
