Next, select where you want the Social bookmarking icons to appear in your blog:

P.S. Sociable plugin for WordPress doesn’t work well with WordPress 2.2. A blogging buddy of mine is using WordPress version 2.2 and the Sociable plugin didn’t work. The backend was totally messed up. During research, we discovered that many people who used the 2.2 version had the same problem!

Other than that – we love it! Get sociable!
