Shareaholic – The Fastest and Easiest Way to Share Content Across the Web

One of the biggest trends is Social Media today is Content Creation.  But creating content won’t do you a lot of good if you aren’t sharing and promoting it across the web.  All this sharing can be a time consuming grind…  unless you’re using Shareaholic.  Shareaholic  is a super fast – super charged way to share content on over 200 sites across the web, including Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Digg, Delicious, Diigo, Tumblr, StumbleUpon and many many more.  Whether you are a social networking junkie, or a prolific blogger, Shareaholic will simplify and speed up your content sharing.

The easiest way to use Shareaholic, is as a plugin for your browser. It works with all the major browsers, Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari, Opera, and more.  You can download the plugin here.  Once you have the plugin installed, you will need to customize your settings.  Click on the “options” link and here you will select all the sites you typically share to.  If  you do not already have accounts set up, you will need to go to these sites and create accounts. In the “options” menu, you can even place the sites you choose into the order you want them.  I keep the sites I use most often at the top of the menu.  You will also want to select your preferred URL shortner, and link your Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Now you are ready to start using the plugin.

Sharing a blog post has never been easier…  Simply open the post in your browser and highlight any text within the post you want to be included in your posts. Also, have your keywords handy, for easy copy and pasting.  Now, click on the plugin, and select the site you want to share to.  Shareaholic will grab the link, any post photo, and copy your highlighted text.  All you need to do is add your keywords (keywords will be used only on the bookmarking sites like Digg, Delicious, etc.).

Sharing webpages is one click simple!  When you find any content across the web that you want to share, simply click on your Shareaholic plugin and choose  the site you want to share to.  Shareaholic will grab the link and title for you. All you need to do is type in your comment and click share. Done! It couldn’t be easier. This little tool will make posting simple and lightning fast.  You never have to the leave the page you’re on.
