I sent out a “call to action” for members of Blog Engage to follow each other on networks outside of the normal social sharing sites that lead the pack: BloggerLuv, Amplify, Bloggers, HubPages and YouSayToo.
More Details About Amplify
is was highly recommended by myself and others (like Gail from GrowMap for example) and at the very least I suggest you add your links to the DoFollow Bookmarking page. Today I want to go into more detail and discuss what I think is the next up-and-coming social networking tour de force Amplify.
I've been spending more time on the Amplify site and I'm really impressed with how user-friendly the interface is. I use the handy Chrome Extension for Amplify and the browser bookmarklet as well. It's an excellent way to build links, and share the content of what I consider the most intriguing content on the web (including my own articles and blog posts).
Visit the site and you'll find that you can quickly sign-in with Twitter or Facebook and instantly you've created your very own MyAmplify page. You can auto-post to several social networks but be mindful not to “overshare”. Or simply use Amplify to create a customized collection of articles focused on your topic of choice.
Blog with Amplify
You can write blog posts with Amplify from the simple-to-use Visual or HTML post editor to add extra spark to your MyAmplify page. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is just getting started with blogging and they are looking for a free blogging service. Amplify is not quite as robust as WordPress.com or Blogger but it's a great alternative to some other popular free blogging services like Posterous or Tumblr. Using the blogging feature is a great way to stimulate conversations on your Amp. Notice the tagline that appears in the logo above; “Where conversation is king.”
