How to Add GetSocial Bookmark Icons to Your Post
Write a new post and publish it without the social bookmarking button. But I always prefer to save the draft, and get the permalink of my post, rather than publish my incomplete post.
With GetSocial wizard interface which is very friendly, fast and easy to use, you can add social bookmarking icons to your new post in 3 steps. You may also implement 3rd Party (like AddThis or AddToAny) Buttons in your blog.
Step 1. Post Information
You will need to enter the title of your post and a permalink to your post (web address of your post).
