What is Wakelet, and where do I start?


Wakelet is a free platform that allows you to save, organise and share content from across the web.

With Wakelet you save content in collections, which you can keep to yourself, collaborate on with others or even make public to share with the world!

Here's a quick guide to help you get started. 

Creating a Profile

First, head over to and click 'Sign Up'. You'll be asked to choose a username and answer some questions so we can get to know you better.

Once you've signed up you can go to your profile page and edit the other details of your profile like your displayed name, your bio and your profile picture:.

Making your first collection

When you're happy with your profile, go back to your homepage and create your first collection.
