WordPress.com Adds “Share This” Social Bookmarking Function

I posted a “How To” get social bookmarks on wordpress on August 23rd – “Social Bookmarking For WordPress.com“. I was very happy with this and with the simplicity of this feature.

The only problem with this was it involved a manual input with each individual post. Not a huge problem, when you consider the benefits.

As of August 25th (2 days after post), WordPress.com announced a new feature. A fully automated “Share This” feature – it’s at the bottom of this post.

Timing!

So, Ignore my original Social Bookmarking post, there is a much easier way!

1) In WordPress dashboard, go to “Settings”.

2) Open sharing tab.

3) Choose from available services (facebook, twitter, stumble upon etc). Save changes and you now have automatic social bookmarking options for each post you write.

To find out more go to http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2010/08/24/more-ways-to-share/

So my original post was valid for 2 days, a bittersweet frustration.

Thankyou WordPress for introducing Sharing option, it was about time!
