Do authors need RebelMouse?

Rebel Mouse is a social media tool that pulls in your social media from many networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Tumblr, blogs and even your email, into your own personal RebelMouse page that can be embedded on any domain. Authors can use it to collect, connect and distribute information for research, writing and sharing.

Margaret Looney in her post The Year’s Best Social Media Tools for Journalists cited that IJNet (International Journalists Network) named RebelMouse as the number one tool of the year.

The idea behind RebelMouse is that it becomes your social front page. Everything you do across multiple platforms such as your blog, Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc. automatically gets updated on your page. Instead of repeating your content in a spin that is frowned upon you can add something new on each platform and share it all in one place.

Once the page is built, you can keep it private for your own use or share it with the world.

Private use can be helpful for doing research or following social information that you want to stay abreast of but may not be of particular interest to your followers.

On the other hand, creating a RebelMouse page can be a fantastic way to add extra value to your “About Me” page. Building a successful book marketing platform is all about creating relationships with your ideal target reader. With RebelMouse you can share the sites that you find helpful, fun and interesting with your followers. Providing a hub of vital resource information can be a great way to make your site more sticky.

A bookmarklet lets you post anything of interest as you browse the web to your RebelMouse page. You can post articles, videos, posts and links.

A small box to the left allows you to enter a few words to describe this page.
