Recently I created an account on Amplify where I can spark conversations and share snippets about things I find on the web by using the Amplify bookmarklet to post to Twitter. As a WAHM mommy blogger, I am active on many social networking sites on the Internet, including Twitter, Facebook and ning sites. Currently I use Rebelmouse to aggregate my Press Kit information. While social networking sites build upon relationships between members and help with blog promotion and traffic generation, social bookmarking sites create connections through the types of content generated by members. It is these connections that make social bookmarking such an effective business tool for Internet entrepreneurs.
Amplify The Web Social Networking and Sharing
While Amplify’s goal is to make conversations on the web more enjoyable, I am using it as a news clipping service to share with my Twitter and Facebook followers posts that I find beneficial. Amplify’s bookmark chicklet also enables me to use the clippings as a reference library of posts that I can refer back to and find helpful as a blogger.
While Twitter typically allows only 140 characters for posting an update, Amplify allows more than that.
Key features of Amplify are:
- Amplify is a free service to use
- Use Amplify to autopost to Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Google Buzz, Tumblr, Posterous, Rebelmouse, WordPress and more. I use Rebelmouse to aggregate all of my media and press coverage.
- Amplify can be used in any web browser or get the Amplify Firefox add-on or Google Chrome extension.
- Amplify can be used to share directly to or from Google Reader
There isn’t an Amplify application for the Android or iPhone smartphones or an app for the Apple iPhone at the moment but they are expected to be available shortly.
Sign up for Amplify by using your Facebook or Twitter account, and start your own clipping service of your favorite news or blog posts.
