Thanks to an initiative from websites to incorporate social media sites into their articles and blog posts, social websites are more popular that ever when it comes to sharing content online. The Guardian, a United Kingdom online and print newspaper, reports that UK newspapers are getting about one third of their traffic from online aggregators and social media sharing sites like Digg, Facebook and Stumble Upon.
The surge in sharing may be due to the fact that many websites are now making it a standard practice to include buttons for sharing their content on Facebook, Twitter, Digg, and other social networking sites.
