Following a month after Meebo, here comes the second Web Check-In. OneTrueFan lets you tell your friends which web pages you visit.

It allows registration via Twitter account, which is cool, automatically assigns an icon and fits well with the current pseudo-realtime-still-asyncronous trend. Google SideWiki is basically the same. You leave notes on Web pages, so lets count OneTrueFan ans the #3 Web Check-In. The race is on.

The buzz says, OneTrueFan is the Foursquare for Websites. OneTrueFan says:

"In its current form, the Web is a largely uninhabited world, where people can only see each others' artifacts and the vast majority of us never leave an imprint on our favorite sites.
OneTrueFan was born out of two ideas: 1) experiences are better when shared and 2) changing human behavior is next to impossible. Our first service enables people to automatically show up on the pages they visit. Other people can then discover them and interesting new content.
OneTrueFan is not a social network in the traditional sense, in that social networks attempt to localize an experience and/or lock users into a single social graph. OneTrueFan is the anti-network, bringing to light the communities that already exist at your favorite sites, with no additional effort on your part."

OneTrueFan is a browser add-on (which will work on any web site) and a Javascript code which web sites can embed into their HTML (which will probably work for all users even if they did not install the add-on).

OneTrueFan appears to be funded with $1.2M. The company was founded July, 2010.
