I have been adding Social Media links and Share widgets to qisoftware.com site areas-- including the blogs and forums. Up until this point, I have paid little or no attention to these areas as related to my sites- though I have profiles with most of the popular social media sites.
Here is a snapshot of the new features to this blog--
Are you confused? The links at the top of the sidebar allow access to my profiles on other sites-- and the Share wigdets at the bottom of the page [courtesy sharethis.com]-- allow you to post to your Facebook or Twitter [more options available] news feed the current article or post you are reviewing.
Illustrations of the share button options at the bottom of the page.
Once you have selected the share target [most often your Facebook or Twitter news feed]-- simply click the "share" button and the link for the current article will be posted.
This is how it works for most sites that use these share button widgets.
Okay you knew this? Well, I am a little slow about integrating new things [because I am often busy doing other things]-- so if this is you too, this explains why there is a Twitter button at the top of the page-- which is different than the Twitter button at the bottom of the page.
