Amen Me: Christian Social Bookmarking
Amen Me is a social bookmarking service for Christians. Members participate by sharing content and showing their agreement with an amen.
Christian Social Media
Do you have a Facebook or Google+ account? What about LinkedIn or ShoutLife? If you use these social sites, you already know something about social networking. Are you familiar with social bookmarking?
Social bookmarking is helpful for web writers, bloggers, and anyone who does online research. It lets you store, organize, manage, and search various online resources -- all from one place.
Unlike file sharing, bookmarking websites do not share actual resources. Instead, they share links called bookmarks that reference those resources.
Social bookmarks offer many benefits. From a social bookmarking site, you can access a consolidated set of resources, organize a collection of bookmarks, and share bookmarks with your personal contacts.
Bookmarks are also good marketing tools for writers, bloggers, and other content creators. They provide exposure, traffic, and backlinks for your online articles, especially if you target communities where your brand of content is desired.
If you are a Christian author, Christian bookmarking sites can help you reach other Christians with your work. Amen Me is one such service.
Can I Get A Witness?
Hundreds of social bookmarking sites populate the Internet. Delicious, Digg, Reddit, and StumbleUpon are four well-known examples.
Some of these sites are designed for general users, while others target specific communities. Amen Me is social bookmarking for Christians. "Can I get a witness?" is their slogan.
According to the site, it "operates on the simple principle that people like to see what others have already liked." When you give an amen to a particular link, it gains exposure as it climbs a popularity chart.
An amen also expresses your appreciation for the links of other site members. When you click on the Amen Me icon next to a link, it counts as a vote for the link and the article or site that it points to.
Statement of Faith
Amen Me is intended for Christian writers and Internet users. It limits social bookmarking to articles and websites that benefit the Bible-believing community.
Your submissions must agree with the Amen Me statement of faith. To clarify their meaning of Bible-believing, the site points to a collection of faith declarations. Among them are "How to Know God" by Greg Laurie of Harvest Ministries and the Answers in Genesis Statement of Faith.
Anyone can submit a link to Amen Me. The site considers all submissions but does not accept all of them. For example, it will not publish links to resources that do not align with their statement of faith.
Your bookmarks do not have to point to religious articles, Bible studies, or Christian websites. They just have to build up other believers. The site accepts links in a variety of categories including books, movies, current events, health, technology, and sports.
Are you ready to save your bookmarks to Amen Me? Before you can submit links, view lists, and read comments, you must register on the site.
Registration is free and requires only a user name, password, and valid email address. Not personal information is required. The site will not share your email address or use it for advertising purposes.
If you request them, Amen Me will send daily Bible studies to your email inbox. You can also listen to sermons on the Amen Me Radio Program or watch videos on Amen Me TV.
The radio and television programs address topics of particular interest to Christians: apologetics, Bible study, creationism, freedom, government, Israel, morality, and movies like this video.
