You don’t have to look too far online to see more and more people using social bookmarking services and news sites. Content publishers from blogs to mainstream publications like Minneapolis Star Tribune are looking for ways to make it easier for readers to save and share content.

There are a variety of tactics including social bookmark links, icons, multi-purpose buttons, browser add-ons, bookmarklets, other tools and scripts that can used to encourage visitors to promote content. The question is, how are people using them?

When bookmarking or submitting a page to a social media site, do you most often:

  • Use a browser add-on. (34%, 31 Votes)
  • Click on social icons on the page. (18%, 16 Votes)
  • I don't use any of those. (15%, 14 Votes)
  • Use a bookmarklette. (13%, 12 Votes)
  • Click on social links on the page. (7%, 6 Votes)
  • Click on a multi-purpose button. (5%, 5 Votes)

Are content owners adding in social buttons because they provide value to their users? Or are they just taking up space and virtually ignored?
