23 Mobile Things: 7. Content Saving & Sharing

There are 7 Seas, 7 Deadly Sins, 7 Continents, 7 Wonders of the World, 7 Colors in a Rainbow, 7 Days in a Week, 7 Heavens, 7 Liberal Arts, 7-Eleven...

...and, of course, the world renowned Thing Number 7.

Thing 7 of 23 Mobile Things is about Content Saving & Sharing. As you can see, the post references two tools that allow you to save and share content in the cloud. Content sharing and social bookmarking are game changers in my book. The ease with which recommendations, reviews, and suggestions are shared about every imaginable topic is pretty mind blowing. Becoming adept at navigating this world seems to make life a whole lot easier.

The post suggests Pinterest and Bitly. I'm a big fan of both. But that's just scratching the surface. There are a countless ways content can be saved and shared on the internets.

Diigo comes to mind (a social bookmarking app), eduClipper is the new kid on the block (shall we label it the Pinterest of Education?), and even old faithful Twitter works (You post article or idea -- I read article or idea). All become quick avenues for getting what we've found useful out there for all to enjoy. Sharing is caring, friends. Sharing is caring.

In this grossly overused technique, the author incorporates a gratuitously
 cute image to make an otherwise boring post seem slightly more interesting.
The author is sorry she's not sorry.

So, how do you save and share content on your mobile device? (not a rhetorical question)
