Rooh.it Instant Highlighter: Save and Share `parts` of web-pages

Description

Makes Your Web-Site/Blog VERY VIRAL!

Add a highlighter pen to your blog: anyone can then make ‘highlights on any part of your page’ and easily post them to any Social Networking & Bookmarking site (Facebook, Twitter, LinkdIn, Digg, etc.) Each post auto includes a tiny URL linking other readers back to your highlighted page.)

  1. No Signup needed by anyone.
  2. No Download needed by anyone.
  3. FREE (and fast!) NO FINE PRINT.

Highlight as you surf and directly post highlights to your website. Ever blogged about something you read online? Shared a link? Or, linked to another webpage? Now automatically embed/quote a part of that page – easily. No need to “join”, or pay, NO FINE PRINT 🙂

Totally customize the look/feel. Very, very COOL

To Try it:

  1. On this page itself, or on any other webpage, simply type rooh.it/ before the URL address (e.g. rooh.it/google.com) and your mouse cursor instantly changes into a highlighter pen. We recommend you add a button so that you won’t have to type each time you want to highlight.
  2. Select any text and watch it instantly get highlighted in color!
    • Mouseover any highlight to post it to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or any social network – along with a customizable auto-generated tinyURL – for others to link back to the same highlighted page. (Yes, it works instantly for everyone! Try it!)
    • You can make Comments, add Tags, keep it Private, and much more..
