Last night, I added a new plugin to my blog which allows users to share my posts across any imaginable social network or link posting service.
I originally stumbled upon the ShareThis service by avidly reading Wired.com, which uses it. I used it a few times to forward articles to that certain someone, you know, to further affirm my geekness 2.0. When I first saw the ShareThis interface, I thought: How much is too much? I mean, seriously: All of the latest and greatest Web services just seem to be small variations on the same four-pronged theme: Post content. Share it. Comment on what your friends are posting. Repeat.
Of course, the only problem with that idea is that, thanks to the outburst of all these nifty services, everyone does the same thing a different way. Usually, compatibility seems to be the last consideration.
With ShareThis’ more-is-never-enuff approach, though, at least none of my readers can claim they were left out.
