For those of you who like to keep tabs on the popular kids in the Internet class we all sit in day after day, Social Media promises to bring together stories to let you know what place a page has on the social news networks.
Giving You the Leg Up in Social News…
This extension for Firefox wants to be your tipster when it comes to if a story is good or not. If you find out one story is doing great and it hasn’t hit the other social news site yet – nows your chance to grab it from one source and go post it somewhere else.
Confused on how to use it? Here is how the developers explain:
To make sure it works, go to any web page and hit the manual button, it should then load how many votes that page has had across all the featured social sites, which currently includes: Digg, Reddit, StumbleUpon and del.icio.us.
I like the fact they are not doing the same ol’ stuff when it comes to rolling out yet another social network extension. I think they will need to find a better hook though to capture regular users who probably don’t exactly understand why you would want to use Social Media on a day to day basis.
