Here are some of the questions I have: 1. How do readers of a blog use the social bookmarking buttons? 2. Do you have to sign up on the social bookmarking sites first before you add the social bookmarking bar to your blog? 3. On WordPress, what’s the difference between Add This and Get Social? Thanks so much. You guys are awesome. December 30, 2008 at 5:01 am #312327 teck07Member 1. How do readers of a blog use the social bookmarking buttons? If one of your readers is a member of one of the social networking sites then they press the button on the social network bar & submit your content for you. 2. Do you have to sign up on the social bookmarking sites first before you add the social bookmarking bar to your blog? Nope it’s never a good idea to submit your own work. 3. On WordPress, what's the difference between Add This and Get Social? “Add This” really doesn’t work well with WordPress.COM that’s why GetSocial is so popular for the “Non Tech Savvy” bloggers because it’s free & easy to install if you have a windows based computer.
