I recently found this cool extension for Firefox. It’s called WiseStamp. What’s good about it is that you can add a signature with your email that has links to the different social Web 2.0 services and IM clients you use. It links to your profile on LinkedIn, MySpace, Facebook, FriendFeed, AOL IM, MSM Messenger, ICQ, Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk, and more! It’s a nice way to advertise yourself at the end of an email. You have the choice of setting up a personal signature or a business signature.
The catch: it does not work in an email client like Thunderbird. It only works in web-based email. The ones that are supported are Gamil, AOL, Yahoo!, and Hotmail. It’s pretty easy to use and install. Once installed, you can go to Tools and click on WiseStamp. Edit your signature in either the visual editor or the HTML editor. Then, log into one of the email services and compose a new message. It was automatically inserted into my email message for Gmail. You can also right click to access you signature and insert or edit it. This would be a great addition to a forum post. I was also able to insert my WiseStamp signature here (because it’s HTML based, but I wasn’t able to add it into a Blackboard forum):
This is a great tool to help promote yourself on the web. Let your email signature stick out! Click on the link below to find out more:
