With the proliferation of social media networks, blogs have become only one tool in creating our online identity. The question is: how do we integrate all of the facets of our online identity so that we can actually have a life too? blah blah tech’s Socialize Me WordPress plugin is another step in this direction.
The Socialize Me WordPress plugin gives you another way to interact with visitors to your site who have come via other social networks:
Imagine one of your articles has been submitted to StumbleUpon. You’re getting a steady stream of visitors to your ‘blog. You could really connect with some of these guys — if you knew who they were.
Well here’s the thing, with Socialize Me! those visitors to your ‘blog will see a simple message when they arrive: “Hi, thanks for the visit! [I’m] on StumbleUpon, too!” with a link to your profile.
With the Socialize Me! Plugin for WordPress you can connect with people on services like: StumbleUpon, Facebook, Digg, Delicious, Pownce, Twitter, Bebo, MySpace and many, many more.
StumbleUpon is a great example of how the plugin can be used, since StumbleUpon can be a pretty good source of traffic, but the visitors are always unknown, and seem to just pass on through. This plugin can hopefully create a stronger connection with them and get them to stick around.
