While Pinterest lets you put together the most interesting images and videos you’ve found on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and YouTube so you can share them with your fellow net readers, a new pinboard-style service will let you do just the same for the articles you read online. Snip.it lets you effortlessly create a collection of links, articles, or opinions called “snips,” and connects you with like-minded individuals who share the same kind of content that you do.
To use, just drag the Snip.it button to the bookmark bar of your internet browser and “snip” once an article interests you. The plugin will automatically prompt you to either share it on Snip.it or on other social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr to stimulate discussion among your preferred networks of friends. Snip.it also provides streamlined organization of snipped information, allowing you to easily sift through your data and that of your friends with little to no difficulty.
Is Snip.it a formidable future game changer for sharing written information in the online world? Check out the demonstration below to decide:
