F1 Bring Social Link Sharing to Firefox

F1 - Social Sharing in Firefox

Mozilla is getting into the world of social link sharing.  With F1, you can add the functionality of sharing a link on Twitter, Gmail or Facebook into the Firefox browser.  This neat add-on has a lot of potential, and is simple enough for anybody to pick up and use.

To share a link with F1, all you need to do is hit the share icon in the toolbar, choose the service you wish to share the link on and type out your short little message to your followers.  Once you then hit share, it will be sent out.  By default F1 works only with Twitter, Facebook and Gmail but I could see other services being included down the road.

Check out this short video to get more details on how F1 works:

Overall, I have to say I am pretty excited to see where F1 will go next.  Will Firefox having an add-on like this put services like AddThis.com out of business?

    Been using Yoono for this and like it very much. Only “problem” is it tries to do a whole lot more that I don’t care about. Hopefully F1 will keep it simple and to the point. However, they do need to spice it up just a tad so we can share content from a particular site (i.e, YouTube video) and not the entire page. Until then I’ll probably stick with Yoono.

    Agreed. Swore off Social sites for good after just 3 weeks of using Yoono.
