Bookmarking Buttons

The process of submitting your content manually to so many social bookmarking sites all at once can be very tiring and time consuming and hence a website came up with the idea of providing the bookmarking facility on your Blog itself. With the application called Add This, you can choose which particular social networking website or bookmarking website you would like to submit your content to and then the content is automatically bookmarked after you have given the necessary permission by logging in to the website. You can download an "Add This" button into your toolbar or a "Bookmark" button for your Blog. The "Add This" button can be easily downloaded from http://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/407 site for free and installed in your toolbar to appear as a red box with a '+' sign inside it as can be seen circled.

The Add This button has a drop down menu with more than 170 sites where you can bookmark your content. You can choose the most common ones that you use regularly to figure in the list as shown in the figure above. This button helps you to bookmark any of your pages right from your toolbar directly into any of the other social bookmarking sites. For example If you have written an article or posted a photo or a video that you want to promote, you can click on this button and thereafter bookmark it on the concerned website. It also works the other way round, i.e. you may like something, say a video or an article on some other site and you want to link to it on your Blog, then you can do so by using this button.

Installing a similar "Bookmark Button" can make this same function available on your Blog, as shown in the figure below. It too has the same list of 170 or more bookmarking sites. This button can be made to appear below each and every post on your Blog or in the side bar using the HTML or JavaScript gadget in the Blog. This will facilitate your readers to bookmark your post into their favourite bookmarking websites and even link to the post in their own Blog. You can download the button free from http://www.addthis.com/site that is shown.
