V.com weekend vote: What's your favorite way to share blog links?

September 1, 2012, 11:23 PM · How do you like to share content on the Internet?

We've got a Facebook page and Twitter account here at Violinist.com, and frequently use them to share interesting links, photos and videos that we find around the Web. And we try to make it easy for you to share Violinist.com blog posts, too, by including buttons at the bottom of every post that will share those links via Facebook or Twitter.

We've got space to add one more button down there, but we're wondering which social bookmarking service we should include. So we're asking for your help! Other than Facebook and Twitter, what's your favorite way to share links online? We've got five choices for you, and whichever one wins this vote, we'll include its button at the bottom of Violinist.com blog posts, too.

The options are:

If you're a big fan of any of these services, please tell us why. FWIW, we tried links to Google+ after that service first launched, but very few people used them. Perhaps that's grown and maybe you'd like to see us use Google+ again. Or, perhaps you'd prefer another one of the choices, instead. Here's a chance to tell us.

We also should note that we have a Pinterest page, too. (That's not in the vote because Pinterest is more for sharing images than for sharing blog posts.) But should we link to our Pinterest page over on the right side of the Violinist.com home page (under "Support Violinist.com"), and dump the Google+ link that's there now? We won't put that question up for a vote right now, but if you've got strong thoughts on that, please let us know in the comments.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for following Violinist.com - no matter how you do it!


September 2, 2012 at 03:35 PM · How about none-of-the-above?

September 2, 2012 at 03:44 PM · Facebook and Tumblr. It seems like everyone under 25 has at least one Tumblr, and there's a very high concentration of well-educated liberal-leaning artistic folk there (the demographic v.com is most popular among? I don't know; just guessing). At first glance Tumblr seems similar to Pinterest - in other words, geared toward images and video - but the site is flexible, and there are actually a lot of Tumblrs that are word-heavy. I'd use a Tumblr button all the time!

September 2, 2012 at 05:36 PM · I have facebook but use it rarely. Maybe I'm just too out-of-it to be a social media-site fan. So I'm for 'none-of-the-above,' too. I'd be likely to check for v-com on fb, now that I know it's there, but more than one? unh-unh.

September 3, 2012 at 12:37 AM · wow, I don't even know what most of those things are....living under a rock I guess.

September 3, 2012 at 11:57 AM · Annette, I guess I'm under the same rock. Too busy practicing the violin and listening to music and doing other silly things like reading books and having conversations with adults and playing with my children I guess.

September 3, 2012 at 03:18 PM · they are internet companies which could go bankrupt, be highjacked from the otherside of the great firewall of china or dot bomb at any moment, so not worthwhile investing too much time in, wish that I would listen to my own advice....

September 3, 2012 at 03:38 PM · I guess I'm living under the same rock with Annette and Paul :)

September 4, 2012 at 01:43 AM · I only use Facebook.
