    Check out this interesting article from Dan Schawbel about social networking.  I particularly liked the sections on corporate branding.  What is nice about the article is that he gives explanations and examples.  Check out his explanation of hypertargeting. 

    Another point I’d like to make about sharing . . . Just used the new Google “send to” feature to post this to my blog.  This feature and the ability to share on Posterous are two great ways to share on the social web.

    Are you Using Google Reader’s “Send To” Feature? 

    I use Google Reader to keep track of RSS feeds.  I like how it is easily incorporated into my iGoogle page.  I also like that you can now foward feeded articles to specific customizable sites, i.e., your blog.   Perhaps that is why I hadn’t really noticed the “send to” feature.  To set it up, follow these instructions from Google:

    Google Reader’s “Send to” Feature


    Google Reader added a new feature that lets you share posts in other services: Twitter, Facebook, Digg. The feature is opt-in, so you need to go to the settings page, click on the “Send to” tab and pick your favorite services.

    After selecting an item, use the keyboard shortcut Shift+T to quickly open the “send to” menu. Google Reader opens a new tab when you choose one of the “send to” options and most of the necessary information it’s already pre-filled.

    If your favorite service is not included in Google Reader’s list, you can add it from the settings page by clicking on “Create a custom link”. Here’s how to add a “send to” option for Google Bookmarks.

    Name: Google Bookmarks
    URL: http://www.google.com/bookmarks/mark?op=edit&output=popup&bkmk=${url}&title=${title}
    Icon URL: http://www.google.com/favicon.ico

    And here’s how to use AddToAny, a service that lets you select between many social sites.

    Name: Add to Any
    URL: http://www.addtoany.com/share_save?linkurl=${url}&linkname=${title}
    Icon URL: http://www.addtoany.com/favicon.ico

    Google Reader added two other options: you can now subscribe to sites added to your contacts’ profiles and mark as read items older than a day, a week or two weeks. The second option is useful if you have a lot of unread items and you only want to read the recent news. As you probably know, Google Reader automatically marks as read the items that are older than a month and this can’t be changed.
