Are You Sharing?

I got an urgent call from a reader this morning. “I need to e-mail one of your stories to somebody”, he said. “What happened to that button?”

The button he’s referring to is the “Share/Save” button that appears beneath our stories. I had turned it off when I was trying to get to the root of the slowness on our site this week (more about that later), and I had forgotten to turn it back on.

But in re-installing it, I realized I had never explained to’s readers how it works. It’s easy and it’s a great way to keep the stories you want to refer back to (like Tracy’s slow-cooker recipes) and let other people know about the information you find helpful.

When you hover your computer cursor over the “Share/Save” button, you get a pop-up window with some options. The e-mail tab lets you automatically send the story from whatever e-mail program you use, whether it’s Yahoo!, Google, AOL or Hotmail. The bookmark tab will save the story under the bookmarks on your computer, if that’s how you like to hold on to stuff.

The main “Share/Save” is the place to click if you want to send the story out to your social networking circle, whether that’s on Facebook, MySpace or Twitter, as well as Delicious, the bookmarking service that you can use from any computer. There are also tabs for Digg, Reddit and StumbleUpon, services that help you share news and see how popular it is with other people.

So, as your parents probably told you, please share.
