Updated on March 18, 2014

Amen Me is a Christian social bookmarking service. Members participate by sharing web content through bookmarks, and by liking the content with an Amen.

Christian Social Media

Do you have a profile on Facebook or Google Plus? What about LinkedIn or ShoutLife? If you use these social sites, you already know something about social networking. But are you familiar with social bookmarking?

Social bookmarks are useful for bloggers, freelance writers, and anyone who does online research. They let you store, organize, manage, and search various Internet resources from one place.

Unlike file sharing, social bookmarks do not share actual resources. They share links called bookmarks that reference those resources. With social bookmarking, you can access a consolidated set of resources, organize a collection of bookmarks, and share bookmarks with your personal contacts.

Social bookmarks are also good marketing tools for bloggers, web writers, and other content creators. They provide exposure, traffic, and backlinks for your online work, especially if you target communities where your brand of content is desired. Amen Me is a social bookmarking service that shares family friendly, Christian content.

Can I Get A Witness?

Dozens of social bookmarking sites populate the Internet. Delicious, Digg, Reddit, and StumbleUpon are four common examples.

Some sites are designed for general users, while others target specific communities. Amen Me is a Christian bookmarking site, and "Can I get a witness?" is their slogan.

Amen Me "operates on the simple principle that people like to see what others have already liked," the site explains. When you give an amen to a particular link, you give it attention and approval. As more people like the link, it gains popularity and exposure.

An amen expresses your appreciation for the content of other site members. When you click on the Amen Me icon near a link, it counts as a vote for the link and the content that it points to.

Statement of Faith

Amen Me is intended for Christian users. The website highlights content that benefits the online Bible believing community.

To define Bible believing, the site points to several 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 bookmark to Amen Me, but the site does not accept all submissions. It only accepts links to content that aligns with the statement of faith.

This does not mean your bookmarks must point to religious articles, Bible studies, or Christian websites. They just have to build up other believers. Amen Me accepts submissions in various categories including books, movies, current events, health, technology, and sports.

Free Membership

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. No personal information is required. The site will not share your email address or use it for advertising purposes.

Amen Me will send daily email Bible studies if you request them. You can also listen to sermons on the Amen Me Radio Program or watch videos on Absolute Truth TV.

These media programs address topics of particular interest to Christians. Examples include apologetics, Bible study, creationism, freedom, government, Israel, morality, and movies like this video:
