Ever wonder if the YouTube videos and blog articles you stumble upon during the day are old news? ‘Is It Old?‘ can help you find out, and (hopefully) save you from embarrassingly sharing a link that’s past its prime.
All you have to do is copy and paste the link into ‘Is It Old?’ It then uses open API to analyze how many times it has been posted to Twitter and how many days ago it was first shared. Depending on these factors, you’ll get a response on a scale of “Dead” to “You’re the first!”
Although it can help you figure out how long the link has been around, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the link is or isn’t worth your time. It will tell you how many people have shared the link before you, and how long ago it was published. It’s ultimately up to you to decide if it’s still worth sharing.
