Bookmarking Web pages on the Internet is something that we’re all used to. At this very moment, I have so many pages bookmarked that I don’t even know what I’m going to do with all of them. In addition to the pages that I have bookmarked, I also send URLs to people and receive them all the time, so there’s a significant exchange of Web sites in my life. Of course, saving or sending a URL isn’t the most efficient way to deal with content because you may only be interested in a certain portion of the page that’s being referenced. Why not extract the parts that you care about? With Snipd, you can.
The service uses a bookmarklet to enable you to snip the content that you want. You don’t even have to register to get started, so feel free to start snipping immediately. Text, images, and videos can be grabbed very easily, and all of your snipped content will be saved to your very own Snipd page so that you and your friends can keep up with it. Thanks to Snipd, you can focus on the good stuff.
If you have a Web site, it only makes sense that you would want your visitors to tell their friends about what you’re doing so that they can also check out your site. The more visitors the better, right? The ways in which people spread the word to others can be varied, but as a Webmaster, you want to make it easy for your visitors to share your content. You’ve probably seen buttons on many Web sites that encourage you to tell a friend about the site that you’re visiting, and these tools can work very well. If you don’t have something like this, then check out FreeTellaFriend.Â
The button that you’ll be given is free, customizable, and simple to add. When your visitors click on it, they’ll be able to do a lot more than enter the e-mail addresses manually and send a quick note. While that basic functionality is a part of the service, visitors can also access e-mail addresses from their online address book on a number of e-mail services and take advantage of bookmarking features. It really doesn’t get much easier than this.
