Social bookmarking. What the heck is it? Why would you want to do it? And how do you make it work for you? Or are you someone who already can’t live without it?
You may or may not have heard of Digg, StumbleUpon, Del.icio.us, Reddit, Mag.nolia.com, Diigo, Twine or Kirtsy. There are a ton of social bookmarking sites out there. Which one do you use? Did you hear that StumbleUpon recently reached 7 million users – more than Twitter?
Do you feel like a Social Bookmarking Neanderthal? Don’t worry, even active Twitter, LinkedIn and FaceBook users are often not plugged into the power of social bookmarking.
What type of Social Bookmarking User are You?
Confused: Are you like Viveka von Rosenwho’s all over Twitter and LinkedIn but confesses to being confused how to use social bookmarking. Not too long ago she thought Twitter was going to be a waste of time, and now is fully hooked. But she still wonders, “Is social bookmarking going to help promote my business? Get me more clients? Save me time?”
Amateur: Or are you like Peggy Dolanewho uses Digg, StumbleUpon and Del.icio.us but is worried she’s doing it wrong. She’s also not sure about how to build communities on these platforms. And asks, “How often do you share things? Is one platform better than another? Is it true you’ll get banned for tagging your own material? And does it really send people to your site who are going to buy your product or are you just getting empty traffic numbers from these sites?”
Expert: Mike Witt is an avid Digg user and really gets it. When you send him something to digg, he helps you get instant results. Mike has advice about Digg account settings, spam management, digging your own material without getting banned, building community with appropriate “shouts,” and finding and keeping Digg friends. Did you know, for example, that a good friend network on Digg is one important way to get momentum going on a Digg post?
How do you use social bookmarking? What are its strengths and weaknesses? And, bottom line, is it a marketing tool or simply another form of entertainment?
