Since Facebook Like Button came out last year, more and more people are adding the Like Button To their web sites!
We found out an interesting fact that only 10.8% of the top 10,000 websites on the net actually have the Facebook Like Button?
When you take a look at most of the big websites of major corporations these are ether out dated web sites or have been oblivious to the world around them.
In any case we start to look at social networking as a craze, the question is what will happen 5-10 years from now? How many more social networks will rise and fall in that time?
On AddThis we have over 350 ways to share content. This is probably the most linked in sharing system to date but it can be overwhelming to choose which network to share on. Facebook Share Buttons are not only easy to use but can provide seamless integration of interests to several of your closest friends and relatives but again with limited exposure. With a click of the mouse you can provide instant interaction with a comment of your own about why you would recommend that particular website or photo or whatever.
On the other hand, we have a slew of other very useful networks like StumbleUpon, Digg, Reddit, Friendster, LinkedIn and so on.
But the question is, which ones are more able to convey information to the people you deal with on a regular basis? The answer is simple…all of them! That’s right! With networks like Ping.Fm and others like Google +1, Feedburner Etc…
This takes the hassle of tons of clicks to get what you want out of your article or of news…whatever you want to share.
I hope this article helps people understand the importance of social networking in a “Smarter not Harder” way.
