How to Share Links with Bitly & FriendFeed from iPhone

by Emon Hassan on April 15, 2009

It’s simple, really, and maybe I’m the last person to get it. Anyway…

1. Drag and drop Browser Bookmarklet from both Bitly and FriendFeed to Safari on your computer (where else). You’ll be syncing this later to your iPhone, so if you don’t want all the other bookmarks to import too, drag these to a clean bookmarks bar.

2. Sync iPhone and import bookmarks.

I’m guessing you already are signed up with both? In that case…you’re ready to roll.

Using Bit.ly

1. Let’s say you dropped by the following (a-thank you) page.

2. Tap bookmark…and

Using FriendFeed.

1. Again, to my site, shall we?

2. Tap FF from your bookmarks list.

3. You can also add photos by tapping, and tapping again, sometimes, to add to your FF queue.

4.  Voila!

Have fun.
