- With Google Toolbar Buttons, it would be easier to access LJ than using Google's Bookmarks. Easier access = user friendly = increased likelihood of use.
- With an authorized LJ Button, the LJ logo would appear on the toolbar at all times, thus reminding busy people (like me) that they have an LJ to update!
- It doesn't look like MySpace has gotten very involved with Google yet. Perhaps you get a step ahead of the competition?
- When new Google Toolbar users are looking for content to add to their nifty new toolbars, if LJ has an authorized button in the Button Gallery, it serves as free advertising!
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
- Although the process doesn't appear complicated, it would still involve someone's time and energy to implement.
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
- I think this is a very simple thing to implement. So simple that I hope you haven't already thought of this and deemed it inappropriate for LJ. :)
