You may have noticed that we've added a new social-bookmarking feature to all blog posts and recipes. The icons you see at the top of each blog post (next to "share") link to a few of the most popular social-bookmarking services. These services allow you to store, tag, share, and promote links with your friends, people with similar interests, and the internet at large. And since it's the internet, you can use these services from any computer, at home, at work, or on the go.
If you come across a story or link on Serious Eats, Slice, A Hamburger Today, or Ed Levine Eats that you find interesting, want to save for future reference, or share with other people, simply click on one of the icons to add it. Each of the services works a little differently, so follow the links below to find out which social-bookmarking site might best suit your needs. All of these services are free to use but do require registration.
StumbleUpon "helps you discover and share great websites. As you click Stumble!, we deliver high-quality pages matched to your personal preferences. These pages have been explicitly recommended by your friends or one of 4,493,158 other websurfers with interests similar to you. Rating these sites you like () automatically shares them with like-minded people – and helps you discover great sites your friends recommend."
Digg is "a place for people to discover and share content from anywhere on the web. From the biggest online destinations to the most obscure blog, Digg surfaces the best stuff as voted on by our users. You won’t find editors at Digg — we’re here to provide a place where people can collectively determine the value of content and we’re changing the way people consume information online."
del.icio.us is "a social bookmarking website—the primary use of del.icio.us is to store your bookmarks online, which allows you to access the same bookmarks from any computer and add bookmarks from anywhere, too. On del.icio.us, you can use tags to organize and remember your bookmarks, which is a much more flexible system than folders. You can also use del.icio.us to see the interesting links that your friends and other people bookmark, and share links with them in return."
Facebook is "a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. People use Facebook to keep up with friends, upload an unlimited number of photos, share links and videos, and learn more about the people they meet." Oh, and you can play Scrabble.
