More Money for Collective Intellect to Keep Fingers on Pulse of Internet

Blogging startup Six Apart launched BlogIt tonight, a Facebook blogging tool application that lets users quickly post to their blogs and then send notifications of the post to various social networks.

Use the tool to write a very basic blog post (no rich text or image uploading available yet), and then publish it to a supported platform – Typepad, LiveJournal, Vox, WordPress (org/com), Moveable Type or Tumblr. By clicking one or more boxes, the title of a post and a link to it will be sent to Facebook, Twitter and/or Pownce as a status update.

The idea is to allow Facebook users to very quickly share something they like on their blog, without leaving Facebook. The application can be added here. Here’s a screen shot of the user interface, and a screencast of the product is immediately after the image:
