When it comes to running a website these days, there is a lot more to think about than just simply designing your website and leaving it. There are trends that you will have to keep up with and one of the biggest trends at the moment is the use of social bookmarking and social networking websites. It is extremely important these days to make sure that if you have a blog post or anything interesting on your website, you should give your visitors a way to post what they have seen to twitter or a way to share it on other social media websites. Of course, this is easy to do, you simply add a few buttons, but making it look great is the hard part. Here are ten websites that have done a great job at integrating social media links into their websites.
