Mister D: I’ve also installed SmartLinks which look like little boxes – sometimes with a star. a book. or musical notations. These are different than smartlinks. SmartLinks help connect you to related information to the links I’ve created: book reviews, similar movies, stock research, music videos, etc…Everyone has a favourite site: Amazon or Barnes & Noble, Last.FM or Yahoo Music, Netflix or Blockbuster …. and SmartlInks give you that choice. For each link I decide to make a SmartLink – whether it’s a book, movie, music album, and more – you’ll automatically get thumbnail images, descriptions and ratings…all without navigating away from your content. Now, I’ll let Snap.com tell you about Snap….Girl!!!!:
Introducing Snap Shots from Snap.com
I just installed a nice little tool on this site called Snap Shots that enhances links with visual previews of the destination site, interactive excerpts of Wikipedia articles, MySpace profiles, IMDb profiles and Amazon products, display inline videos, RSS, MP3s, photos, stock charts and more.
Sometimes Snap Shots bring you the information you need, without your having to leave the site, while other times it lets you “look ahead,” before deciding if you want to follow a link or not.
Should you decide this is not for you, just click the Options icon in the upper right corner of the Snap Shot and opt-out.
