I published an article last night for The Online Guys about my favorite social networking tool Cortex. Because I love this google chrome extension so much I’d like to share it with you as well.
Everyone knows I’m a Google Chrome girl. I’m thoroughly impressed with one of their latest extensions, Cortex. It’s used to share content from any web page you wish on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Tumbr. And it’s lightning fast.
Installing Cortex is simple. Visit the Cortex extension page and click on the blue Install button. Follow the procedure and add the social media accounts you wish to share content on. I use it mainly to share on Twitter. After the extension is installed the fun begins.
After you find a neat article on the web you’d like to share simply hold the left-mouse button down in the middle of the paragraph. A circle will appear (see picture) showing your configured social media accounts. Select the network you’d like to share with and you’re done! The headline is automatically grabbed, the link is shortened and it’s shared. All in one step! To edit the message you’d like to share along with the link hover over the social network you’d like to use and a text field will appear. Enter your message and hit send.
This little tool has saved me a lot of time. I hope you enjoy it as much as me! Let me know your thoughts or if you have any other tools you use to share content quicker.
