Using Social Bookmarking Sites to Reach a Wider Audience

Although posting to listservs and groups spreads knowledge among specific
groups and types of people, there are other ways to bring the issues to the
public arena thus better informing doctors, scientists and the general
public. Social book marking sites are easy to sign-up for making many of the
magazine and newspaper articles and even research papers on CFS and related
issues are only a click away from a wider audience. By all means join
Facebook, Twitter, My Space or Yahoo Buzz, but also consider joining some or
all of the listings below. Most require some level of basic information, but
your profile can be as bare bones or complete as you wish to make public:
