Some of us do a lot of content sharing via Facebook. You like to share news, links and interesting stuff with your friends and family members via Facebook too, right? If so – you might want to check out the new LikeJournal add-on for Firefox. This add-on (plus website service) will create a searchable database of all the links you like via the Facebook like button.

Amplify is a very cool Firefox add-on that will let you clip and share things from news to images and videos (just about anything you find on the web). It fully support auto-posting to Twitter, Facebook, Buzz, WordPress, Posterous and more.
You can clip things, post them by email, add them to your blog or even share them on a micro blogging service. The choice really is up to you.
Want to like things on Facebook, without actually being on Facebook? If Facebook is your second home, and you love to share what you find around the Web with your friends then you need the Facebook Like add-on for Firefox.
Needing an extension-less fix for converting long links into short ones? Now, we all know there are dozens of Firefox add-ons that could do this for you, but do you really need another extension to your browser? Maybe not.
I got an e-mail from a Firefox Facts reader who asked…
"What way do you suggest is best for link shortening? I don’t want to install another add-on if possible. Thanks!"
I’ll share with you the way I handle all my link shortening needs.
Do you want quicker access to "Liking" things in Facebook? The Like-o-matic is an awesome bookmarklet that is designed to let you like anything on the Web and share the fact you like it on Facebook.
Using this bookmarklet is easy. All you have to do is visit the web site, drag the bookmarklet to your bookmark toolbar and then click it when you see something you like. When you do, all your buddies, friends, and family members will be notified that you think that page, article or domain is absolutely awesome.
Go grab the bookmarklet at http://likeomatic.heroku.com/ then come like me!
Once upon a time there was a tiny Twiter tool called, TinyTweet.
This littlest add-on of them all spread joy a harmony throughout the Internets by allowing all those in Twitter land to send tweets to their friend, families and that guy who keeps spamming affiliate deals. It didn’t do this by any normal means. Oh no. It did it’s work by simply highlighting text on any page.
Do you remember Jetpack?
Facebook seems to quickly be outgrowing the other social networks by leaps and bounds. It is hard to find a friend that hasn’t switched over to it from the other social networks like MySpace and the like. So with that said, why not grab a toolbar that will help you get a little more out of your Facebook usage and help you stay connected with your friends even better?
On Friday, Mozilla Firefox was downloaded for the one billionth time since the release of 1.0 in 2004. To help celebrate the news, Mozilla has released a new web site called One Billion + You.
From there, you can easily post to Twitter how much one billion really is, such as:
- A bowl big enough to fit one billion goldfish would be as big as a stadium.
- One billion stacked coins would reach nearly 1,000 miles high.
- One billion centimeters is approximately the distance from Chicago to Tokyo.
- One billion seconds is roughly 31.7 years.
- One billion kilograms is equal to the weight of 250,000 elephants.
- One billion credit cards weigh as much as fifty-two blue whales.
If that wasn’t enough, you can also make up your own to share on Twitter or Facebook. Also don’t forget to decorate your Twitter icon with a Twibbon too.
It would not make any sense to have an add-on collection without having a collector to collect them with. Alongside the new collections feature on the Firefox Add-ons site – there is an extension to go with it. The Mozilla Firefox Add-on Collector will help you discover and organize your favorites into easy to manage collections.
How can you access them? Well, collections that you have marked as favorites in the Collection Dire4ctory will show up in a special section of the Add-ons Manager. That way, you can stay up to date with each collection. Also with it installed, each add-on you install can be easily shared with a friend or published to one of your own collections. So this makes testing and using add-ons for Firefox a much more social experience than it was before.
Go here to download the add-on and get started with your own collection.
If you have posted your own collection for the public to see using the Firefox Add-on Collector, post it in the comments. Would really love to see what you have all come up with.
