So, you’ve written that great article, you’ve shared it to your friends on facebook, and you’re looking to spread the word even further. Through Twittter, your url can reach entire diffrent audiences than Facebook sharing. Getting those first few important re-tweets on Twitter will start to spread your new blogpost like wildfire. If Twitter is still a great mystery to you, I’d recommend Scott Hanselman’s introduction to twitter. You may also be interested in reading Twitter’s own brief “about us” page.
Need to spread the word on your latest blog-post or article? Look no further than the Facebook sharer! Facebook has over 300 million users world-wide, and the chances are good that you can recruit readers. Adding a “share to facebook” icon easily allows your readers to spread YOUR word. This can be accomplished by using plugins for your blog-service, or “share-all” widgets like AddThis or ShareThis. The problem with these services, are that they over-complicate the simple share functionality that’s often wanted.
