Plenton: A ‘Cloud Sharing’ Website With Wonderful Social Media Potential

Digg, Facebook, Twitter, and all similar sites are a part of something called online social media. Social media is what we use to promote trending topics, websites, products, and interesting links on the web. The sites I just mentioned dominate the social media arena. But there is an up-and-coming competitor to these sites. I am referring to Plenton.

Plenton is a ‘cloud sharing’ website with wonderful social media potential. I remember when I first visited Digg, it took me a while to get used to all the links and controls. In contrast, Plenton was a breeze to get used to. All I had to do was create a free account and start sharing.

With Bounce It’s Fun To Share Fast And Visually Accurate Design Ideas

At times sharing the URL of a site simply does not get the job done. Suppose there is a specific part of a website which you have an opinion about; to share this opinion you will first need to separately share the site’s URL, then tell the recipient which part of the site you are referring to, then share your opinion. Needless to say, that process can be quite long – Bounce provides a much shorter way to perform that task.

Bounce is a free and simple to use website that lets you annotate webpages. Annotation is to comment on any area of a webpage. This way when the recipient visits the webpage, he can view your comments on a specific area of the webpage – thus entire process outlined above can be completed simply by sharing a URL.

Aggregating and Sharing Web Links Made Easy With BagTheWeb

We can find content online on any subject; the internet has everything we are looking for. The information is usually distributed over a number of sources.

Suppose we want to view all of Coldplay’s videos; there is no single URL that will have all the videos; we will need to visit multiple URLs. To share the videos, we will need to share all those URLs. The same can be applied to any other thing we are looking for – we will need to visit multiple URLs.

Project Managers Turn Into Zombies Over Time! Have You Looked At Yourself Lately?

Stress and long hours are part of every project manager’s life who battle to get the most out of the resources at hand to achieve the scope. The main goals are to be on time, within budget and deliver quality; a combination that can be impossible to plan and achieve and can be devastating for some project managers.

We all know that achieving these 3 things together is theoretically impossible. Most often, project managers sacrifice quality and budget just to achieve the set deadlines or have a strict budget and sacrifice quality and push deadlines. There are exceptions where all bricks align and delivery is within the planned scope; however to achieve this requires a lot of planning, effort and time which we don’t have at disposal.
