BlogHeiress Blogs And Social Networks

Blogs and Social Networks looks at a Social Bookmarking Site, Magnolia. At the free to use social bookmark site, you can search different topics of sites like Art and Photography.

Ma.gnolia has a featured linker, recent bookmarks, hot groups, and a hot bookmarks tab. Complete with a help page and discover section which allows you to see everyones bookmarks, tags, roots, applications, groups, discussions, newsletters, featured linkers, and also find people.

On the roots page, there is a video to show you how to use this area. It is located right next to the “How to Begin” and  has a little blue link called “Roots Screen”.

On the find people page, you can locate your favorite linkers by name, screen name, or email address.

The Chat page has a support index, tutorial, chat, blog, contact us, developer, center, and a wiki! Which I find quite cool 🙂

Join by signing in with your Open ID, Yahoo, Facebook, Click Pass, WordPress, AOL, Live Journal, or Type Pad accounts. Just choose one of these, choose a screen name, enter your email address and click 🙂

Even hook your Magnolia site straight to Technorati!

{October 9, 2008}   Mixx Digg and Technorati
Mixx Wavecritter

With so many choices out there for Bookmarking type social network sites, I thought we could cover some differences between Mixx, Digg, and Technorati. Each offers a draw or feature of difference and the slight and sometimes subtle variants may help in your decision making. Keeping close tabs and working multiple blogs, social networks, and bookmarking sites is a time consuming venture and is not functional to juggle many. It is best to focus on the ones that will best suit the outcome you are seeking.

Discover exactly how much time you are willing to commit, how much time and energy for this endeavor you can obligate, and most especially what you want to accomplish. What outcome are looking to gain?

Digg Wavecritter

Digg Wavecritter

This is really the most important thing, to know what you are setting out to do. Of course, you can choose to set up free accounts at all of the bookmarking sites and check each one out for a few minutes to see for yourself which are going to best for you. Having a base idea ahead of time will save you some time.

Mixx and Digg are similar in use and navigation but Digg has a lot more presently to offer. Submitting links with a short description of your site at Mixx, giving others the opportunity to vote for or against your submitted site creates user charged ratings. News, health, sports, Tech Science, interests, fun, business, and local categories.

Digg is popular because o its ease of use and navigation as well. Digg allows its users to set their home pages to the topic they choose. Gaming, Science, World, business, lifestyle, sports, technology, entertainment, and offbeat topics are choices for your home page.

From the “upcoming” tab at Digg (in Beta), kickstart the recommendation engine and discover more content with suggestions based on your “Digging” activity. The engine then identifies other “Diggers” like you and presents stuff you might like. Just keep “Digging” to get better recommendations.

The thing I personally find brilliant with Digg, is its feature to blog right from the site with a couple of clicks. This is an easy way to get some great releveant content on your blog. This is one of the bigger draws to Digg, along with being one of my personal favorite features.

Making friends at Digg is also a major draw. With Mixx, you get to gain followers and make friends both. Followers are members who enjoy your content and wish to keep tabs on what you find along the way. The listing tab at Digg of your friends activity keeps you in the know about what content your friends like and locate. Diggs kudos system is as easy as Mixx with a “digg” being equal to a vote up at Mixx. The biggest difference here is that you just “undigg” instead of vote down to take away your positive vote.

What can you vote up, down, or digg? Any article, website story, videos, radio shows, photos, and more. Fun, friends, and bookmarking at Mixx and Digg. Diggs other functions include shouts to your friends, the blogging feature is awesome, you have a history area and comments. At Mixx, they offer a kitchen of sorts with mixing tools that include a toolbar button, a blender application program interface, an engine room, and cooks corner.

Technorati Wavecritter

Technorati is really a social network bookmarking site with a whole lot more included in the package. List your blog sites at Technorati and get your authority rating. The biggest draw that I see with Technorati is really the tab in the upper right hand corner called “Blogger Central”. Find out what’s percolating in blogs today, the top tags or keywords, the rising links of the day, top blogs, and top favorited blogs by members at Technorati. From Blogger central you can access the Technorati tools, plug ins, widgets, and applications. The top most one hundred blogs run from an authority given by Technorati of 27,000 to 2,500, this is an attainable goal when focused. The widgets at Technorati to place on your blog or site are a top searches widget, top tags widget, and link count widget, which displays the number of links to your site, in real time, updated live for all your site visitors. With the Technorati widgets chart, enter any term to see how many blogs have used that term in the past week to the past year.

These social bookmarking sites listed are only three of many, but a few of the user friendlys available. Using a bookmarking site will help gain you extra exposure to your site and with the competition out there, you may well need it.

Technorati is an awesome bookmarking site with a business style layout. Don’t get overwhelmed at Technorati though, take it a little at a time because you really don’t want to miss out on what Technorati has to offer.
