I love the new blog widget by SocialTwist called Tell-A-Friend. It's a pretty slick way for my readers to share content via email, instant messenger, social networks and bookmarks.
SocialTwist supports numerous platforms, so the implementation was pretty simple - it even worked for Classic Blogger (which is what I use on my personal blog).
The Tell-a-Friend service works in most blogging platforms and popular Content Management Systems (CMS). Currently supported platforms are: Wordpress engine, Wordpress.com (free accounts as well), Blogger/Blogspot, TextPattern, JRoller, TypePad, Movable Type, Drupal, Joomla, Pligg, Mambo, and OSCommerce.

Here are the different methods you can share with your readers:

  • Email: GMail, Yahoo! Mail, MSN/Windows Live Mail, Type Email Address.
  • IM: Y! Messenger, GTalk, MSN/Windows Live Messenger, AIM.
  • Blogs: WordPress, Blogger, LiveJournal, TypePad, MovableType, Xanga, Expression Engine, Joomla, Drupal, Textpattern
  • Social: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Indenti.ca, FriendFeed, MySpace
  • Bookmarks: Del.icio.us, Digg, Slashdot, Technorati, Reddit, StumbleUpon, Yahoo! Buzz, Google, Blinklist, Facebook, Newsvine, Furl, MySpace, LinkedIn, Propeller
