The posts on the website have a new look on the footer this new year. The multiple buttons to share a post you find interesting on Pallimed have been consolidated into a Share This button. It looks something like this:When you click on it a small window opens to give you the option to bookmark it to several social networking sites (Facebook, Del.ico.us, Google Bookmarks, Technorati, etc.), email to a friend, or post on your own blog (similar to the reblog feature). If there are ones you prefer, but do not see them, let me know, and I will add them.
If you use any of the web tools or social networks, we encourage you to tag any Pallimed post you like. By doing so it raises the awareness of palliative medicine issues to the web in general since others may stumble upon the post at the aggregations sites. If you don't use any of them, might I encourage you to consider the following:
RSS reader: Google Reader
Social Bookmarking: del.ico.us
Social Networking: Facebook (has a Pallimed readers group, palliative medicine fellows group and AAHPM group) or LinkedIn (has a AAHPM group)
Here are some quick videos to teach you what they are if you are not familiar with them (email subscribers click the title of the post to view):
