I Love Social Bookmarking

I Love Social Bookmarking is a simple WordPress plugin that allows your readers to submit your content to social media services via a clutter-free drop-down list of attractive icons.

What are social media services?

If you’ve not heard of social media sites such as Digg or you should get to know them. They allow Internet users to save and rank web pages that they find interesting and share them with their friends and other users. When your content gets shared with others this can potentially generate huge levels of traffic for your blog. Just what you want, right?

How is ILSB different?

There are other social media plugins that do a similar job. ILSB aims to keep things as simple as possible for both you and your readers, to run with minimal system resources, and to look good whilst she’s at it. The plugin features attractive icons provided by, is easily customisable to fit your blog’s theme, is XHTML standards-compliant and is SEO optimised by using the “nofollow” tag.

Which social media services are supported?

Currently supported: Blinklist, Blogmarks, Digg,, Furl, Ma.gnolia, NewsVine, Reddit, StumbleUpon, Technorati. More to come soon!
