Great New Web Sharing Tool: MyBoredBox

I rarely reference new tools or gadgets. I don’t accept most pitches that I get from entrepreneurs or marketing agencies to review software or technology platforms. There are other blogs, much larger than mine, that are dedicated to that kind of reporting.

But I recently came across a new tool that a friend showed me, and I’ve been using it non-stop ever since. So I figured I’d take the time to give it some credit, since I do like to share useful tools that I use in my day to day life with readers.

The toolMyBoredBox

What is it – It’s a simple sharing tool that allows you to bookmark any URL (web page, video, etc.) and share it with friends.

How it worksVisit the site, create an account, and copy their bookmarklet into your browser. When you stumble across a story or video that you like, you can click the bookmark tool, and enter in the email addresses of friends or co-workers you think will like it. It’s a personalized form of bookmarking or sharing, with a strong website component that allows you to leave comments, forward links, and keep a list of favorite links.

Thumbs up in my book!
