Installing and using Social Bookmarking Plugins on WordPress

/
Today I am going to cover a couple of different way you can add Social Bookmarking to your WordPress blog. Most everyone want their blog or website pages to be shared with the community at large and one great way to accomplish this is to add some buttons to your site to make it as easy as possible for your readers to share what they find on your site with others. Why would you want to add this to your site? Well the biggest reason is to help your readers share what you have to say with the world by adding either of the plugins discussed here you will be able to add some great interaction to your website and encourage the sharing of information with others. The two main plugins that I have tested out are Digg Digg and Sociable. Both these plugins work well but take different paths to accomplish similar goals. The biggest difference between the two is that with Digg Digg you will get large icons on your posts and with Sociable you will get a nice row of small icons linking off to the social websites. See the image below for a comparison of the different icons.
