Shareaholic helps you share your favorite websites

Geek GirlShareaholic is a Firefox plugin that gives you the ability to share on social networks, bookmarking sites and via email any websites that you come across and want to share. ShareaholicIt supports over 21 different social networking sites, bookmarking services and has neat features that will have you using Shareaholic daily!

As you can see from the screenshot, once you install Shareaholic into your Firefox (Flock and Songbird are also compatible) browser, the plugin will insert the Shareaholic button in your Firefox toolbar, and upon clicking the button, a dropdown menu will appear. If the site has already been saved or Dugg, you will see this information, too! I love checking out how popular a website is, so this is a great addition to the plugin.

Shareaholic is easily customizable, so you can add and remove social networks and bookmarking to your heart’s content.

My only complaint is that the “Email this Page” feature forces you to use Bzzter social networking site to email links to friends and family members, but if you set Gmail as your default email client in Firefox and couple it with the GmailThis! bookmarklet, you’ll be able to send links easily.

This special feature, Geek Girl, appears every Monday.

  3. I tried Shareaholic out but found I didn’t use it. It would be great if it could be customized to add bookmarking sites without editing the plugin itself.

    Hmmm… that’s something I may have to do.

    • That’s a good idea. Fortunately (unfortunately?) for me, I only use a couple of bookmarking sites.

  4. Thanks for using Shareaholic!
