Amplify.com clip, share, blog, tweet and more

July 22nd, 2010

Amplify.com is an awesome way to clip web content and share it to many different places like Twitter, Tumblr, Blogger, Google Buzz, WordPress, Facebook and many more.

Usage is really simple. Either manually create an account with Amplify.com or sign in using Twitter or Facebook and add (drag & drop) a JavaScript based BookMarklet to your Bookmarks toolbar and start clipping and sharing across the Internet.

Widget
If you want to share Amplify content to your blog, but don’t want it in your posts, you can grab an Amplify widget.

This widget is dead simple to setup. Choose a color, choose a size, decide how many Amps to display, ‘Update’ and grab your code. Its that simple.

Badges
If you don’t have use for a widget but would still like to share your Amps with your audience. Consider adding an Amplify.com badge.

Google Buzz Buttons

April 13th, 2010

Today Google announced the official Google Buzz Buttons for your website. This is great! Because up until now, all Buzz buttons were tied directly into your Google Reader account.

We’ve seen lots of people using Google Buzz to share interesting links from around the web. To do so, you had to copy and paste the link from one browser window to another — there weren’t buttons that made it easy to post to Google Buzz without leaving the site you’re on. Savvy sites like Mashable and TechCrunch quickly got creative and implemented their own Buzz buttons, using Google Reader as the backend. But not every site owner should have to hack together their own version of these buttons (and not everyone who uses Buzz also uses Reader), so this morning we’re making copy-and-paste Buzz buttons available for anyone to use.

Well…here they are…in their entirety.

I really think its great that there is now a “Follow Me” Buzz button. I know there have been others…but there is nothing like an “Official” widget to set things right!

auto updating Buzz stat widget from Buzz-Stats.com

March 31st, 2010

If you are into Google Buzz…Buzz-Stats.com offers a cool Buzz badge that displays your current followers. The badge also acts as a link to the Buzz-Stats user page associated with your badge. Here people can see stats about your Buzz activity and they can also follow you.

Google Buzz Team has 7379 followers on Google Buzz

There is also a graph of sorts provided. I believe it only displays the number of followers you have on any given day. Not much change happens on this graph.

Here is the Buzz-Stats page where you can create your own Buzz-Stats badge.

rebuzzthis.com claims that in the 25 or so days that they have been in operation, 800,000 rebuzzthis buttons have been served. (this metric comes from the rebuzzthis advertising page)
