Socializer - Web 2.0 Bookmarking - Tagging Made Easy

There is an excellent Cre8asite Thread named Meet the Socializer, Go on, be social. The thread discusses a new free automatic social bookmarking submission tool named Socializer. Socializer gives you the ability to create one link, for your readers to click on and be directed to a landing page specifically for selecting which social bookmarking site you want to "tag" your content at.

All this talk about tagging, well what is it? In short, it allows you to write descriptive keywords and apply those keywords to content that you have written. As more people "tag" your content with those keywords, the more that content is related to the keywords. Also, you are then found within a bubble of others tagging their content under the same keywords. Enabling people to find related content by keywords, that have been tagged.

We tagged all of our SES NYC 06 content with Technorati tags, that now gives you one central place to find all the other content tagged for that conference. That is just one example of how it can be used.

If you are interested in learning more about tagging, read SEM Via Communities, Wikipedia & Tagging session I covered at SES NYC.

As you may notice, (the link under the entry, on the right, that says "Bookmark This") we have applied this tool to our pages here, but we used a handy MT Plugin made by Jon Tillman, it took me literally 2 minutes to get it up and running. Now all I need to do is rebuild the site.

Hi, I'm the author, so to speak, of the MT plugin. I have posted a few ideas for how to improve the tag on my blog. If anyone has ideas/requests/complaints about the tag, please feel free to leave a comment and I'll see what I can do about it.

I would love for the link to be a drop down (maybe using ajax). You click "bookmark this" and it drops down a list of the social bookmarking sites, instead of it taking you to a different site to click on a logo.
