One By One Media Tests Kindle Button To Be More Social

kindlelogoSocial media is constantly changing and new applications become available to make companies be more social. This has occurred recently with the Amazon Kindle and its application or plugin to allow people to send blog posts to their Kindle device.  I recently wrote over at Bloggers For Hire about Google Reader being shuttered in July of this year and this new application comes at a opportunistic time for the folks at Amazon.  With bloggers looking to find ways to get their content in front of those readers that use devices to consume content, Kindle provides a way to distribute that content.

WordPress users can jump right into the distribution of their content on the Amazon Kindle by installing the Send To Kindle plugin in the WordPress plugin catalog. It is a simple plugin to install and the settings make it easy to create the button and allow you to put the sharing button in the front of the post or at the end of the post.  I will begin testing the service by putting the button at the end of the content like the Twitter sharing function here.  I am not sure that is the best location for its use at the end of the content that you are expecting people to save and read later.  It may be better used at the beginning of the text of the content after the title of the piece.  This is a new application and the use of it and its functionality is still to be determined.  I think there are other similar apps on the market out there and I will be looking into this more since the reader from Google is changing how wee get our content into the hands of those that want to read it.  All in all, Kindle is allowing us here at One By One Media to be more social.

Is Privacy A Thing Of The Past?

As I sat and watched Mike Arrington of TechCrunch interview Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, I heard them discuss the future of privacy.  It seems that Zuckerberg is evangelizing the death of the doctrine of privacy.  With Facebook being the largest social network out there, that is a pretty scary notion given the fact that we […]

Is Facebook The New Television In Advertising?

As we approach the Super Bowl this weekend, it is that time of year when we all gather around the television to watch our favorite event, not the game itself but the commercials that are aired during the game.  There have been parties centered solely around the advertisements, and they have sites dedicated to them, […]

Twitter Losing Trust

I was going through my feeds last night and funneling all of my reads as I tend to do in the evenings and sharing some of what I found to be interesting to my community through Twitter.  This is becoming more and more of a habit with me as I tend to pour through a […]

The Social Media Revolution

I am behind the times on this one but I wanted to get it on my site to refer to it later.  This is a great video and worth the watch. Some of the information in this video is already obsolete.  Social Media is moving at a rate that none of us can keep up […]

TechCrunch Snubbed From Twitter 101 Resource Page

I am not sure that anyone in the tech world has written about Twitter more than the popular news site TechCrunch.  You may have a hard time picking out the single most popular Twitter post since after 38 pages of search results on the subject I lost count of the number of articles.  The most […]
