I learned something today from two of my readers, Nick Temple and Michele Martin about to add the "Share on Facebook" and "Digg This" links to your posts automatically on typepad. These options might be called "Social Media Optimization" (more here)
I decided to make a quick screencast.
Now, I have some questions. I need to explore whether there is a way to see at glance and side-by-side comparison which of your posts have been added to del.icio.us, stumble upon, facebook, etc. Looking at the numbers may give you some indication of what your readers thought was valuable. I would like to see if number of comments correlates.
What I'm really curious now is your behavior. When you are reading this blog in a reader, to you use the feed flare options? When you come to the page itself, do you use the feed flare options? Why or why not? I'm trying to figure out if this is useless extras on your blog or can be valuable.
