With so many Kindle users using Twitter, we’re happy to satisfy their tweeting urges with our new Autopost to Twitter feature. Now, when Kindle users post a new prayer, they have the choice to post their prayer to their Twitter feed, and share them instantly to their Twitter followers. Their posted tweets will include a link back to their posted prayer so friends and family can read their entire prayer request. Happy tweeting everyone!
For those of you wondering what Twitter is, view the “Twitter in Plain English” video below, and read Rhett Smith’s How Twitter Can Catalyze Your Ministry for a great overview for applying Twitter to your ministry.

You can now add a URL link to your prayer requests. If you have a news story, blog post, video, or social networking page (like Facebook) that is related to your prayer request, insert the URL address into the “Link to more information” field when posting your prayer request.
View the Baton Rouge tarp prayer to see the new URL link feature in action.

A frequent request from our users is the ability to post a prayer anonymously, and so we’ve just added it. Anonymously posted prayers will not show up on your public profile page, and enables Kindle users to post prayer requests while protecting their identity for personal prayers they’re not yet comfortable revealing publicly yet.Â Give it a try!

We have a new widget for those of you who have more space for a larger format widget.
Note: If you have a prayer group on Kindle, and would like your own customized group prayer widget, email us at widgets [at] kindlejoy.com and we’ll help you make one.

We just added the ability to post prayers anonymously as an additional privacy feature.Â Many of our users asked how they could post a prayer that they didn’t want their friends and family know about yet.Â Perhaps it was prayer that they were not ready to share yet publicly but still wanted to put out there to get support and prayer for.
To use the anonymous setting, the feature appears in the Post Your Prayer form under the Prayer Privacy Settings.Â Anonymous prayers show up in user’s private journal only when the user is logged in, so they can post prayer updates and track the comments easily.

We just added RSS feeds to group and personal pages. Right now, you can access the RSS feed through your browser, and we’ll be adding an RSS icon link on the pages shortly.
Some ideas for using Kindle RSS feed may include:
- Adding your prayer group feed to your RSS reader such as Google Reader, Netvibes, or your customized Yahoo home page
- Share your prayer group feed on your Facebook or MySpace profiles using applications like Simply RSS
- Use your RSS feed to create a widget to place on your website or blog using free online tools like WidgetBox
