In this new article, we revisit our favourite content curation site Wakelet and introduce you to Wakelet Spaces.
Let’s get started.
What are Wakelet Spaces?
Wakelet Spaces is a new tab within your Wakelet home area that allows you to create Spaces.
A Wakelet Space is a separate area and profile within your Wakelet account where you can quickly and easily create collections that you can invite members to collaborate on.
Each Space that you create is created under one account and one single email, so there is never any need to log in and out and swap accounts.
Wakelet Spaces work in exactly the same way as your Wakelet home area does.
You can create collections and bookmarks and personalized branded Space profile pages all while remaining separate from your main Wakelet page giving you more flexibility and better organization.
Once you have created a Space you can invite other members to create their own collections within your Space and collaborate.
Making your first Wakelet Space
The Spaces tab is located to the left of your profile image as shown in the screen capture below.
Simply click the + button to create your first Wakelet Space.
Once you have pressed the + button you are presented with the screen below.
Click the Let’s go button.
Customize your new Space.
Upload a profile picture (avatar) for your Space and write a descriptive Space name and click Create.
You are then taken to the screen below where you can add and edit your cover image and create your new Spaces description.
Your newly created space is then listed in the tab bar on the left ready for you to create your first collection and to invite and accept collaborations.
You can view the completed Space in the example above with its first collection here – Setting Up Your Wakelet Space

Would it be useful to create a Space and invite your team to participate and contribute to your project.

A place to be seen and get known.
A place to create new connections and grow existing ones.
