Have you just read an interesting article online? Use the Share menu, usually displayed near the article title, to post article links to your favorite social media sites.
Post to your Facebook page so friends and followers can “like” or comment on the article, too. Tweet the link to your Twitter feed, or post it as an update for your LinkedIn connections. Google+ shares the article publicly on your page or just to those in your chosen circles.
At sites such as Delicious you can save your links in themed interest categories, called “stacks,” that you create and can share with others. In a similar way, Digg promotes articles on topic pages (i.e., Business, Lifestyle, etc.) and can rank them according to how much interest they attract. Reddit does something similar and allows users to subscribe to topic feeds.
For some of these sites, you can load a widget into your browser menu so it’s always available. However you do it, sharing is a fast and easy way to tell others what you’re thinking about.
