Most of us use Feedburner as RSS feed platform for our blog. If you are doing so then you may have observed some links at the bottom of each post feed to share the content on different social bookmarking site or spread the content to other community. These links appears because of the FeedFlare option provided in Feedburner. Earlier I explained the usage of Feedburner is complete analysis guide but now thought to share the option to spread your posts thru feeds.

FeedFlare is an option under “Optimize” tab of the Feedburner Dashboard of a blog. Go ahead and click on the “FeedFlare” tab on left panel of your Feedburner dashboard. Activate this service and then select some of the options from the list provided over there. Here is the list of some of the must have links (from official list and External sources) in FeedFlare.
Options from Official List
- Email This
- Digg This
- Stumble It
- Add to Mixx
- Share on Facebook
Options from External Sources
1. Twit This – If this option is not available under official list then paste the following XML address in the “Add New Flare” box to use this option. All personal Flares should be added thru this box only.
2. Submit to Reddit
3. Add to Any Bookmark
One row of Flare is sufficient at the bottom of the feed as lot many may irritate readers. Add to Any bookmark actually covers all the bookmarking option but still we have provided the most common options at the bottom to share the content directly thru feed. You can also use these options on your blog by adding the HTML code generated at the bottom of the Flare option page. Select the items checkbox under “Site” and then choose the blogging platform from the dropdown at the bottom. Now paste the generated piece of HTML code on your blog template to have these links over there.
