If you add the name of the shared library file to the LD_PRELOAD environment variable, it will be pre-loaded when starting your application, ie. potentially overriding standard C library functions.
However, I'm not sure that's what you meant when you were talking about pre-loading.

Could you clarify what you mean by pre-loading, and where you heard that the "execution will be improved" ?

I think all the Standard applications use pre-loading concept in fact firefox will have its preloader,
gnome nautilus will have its own preloader.

The kind of preloader you're talking about is only useful if you start and stop your application frequently. Is that the case ?
The Firefox Preloader you mentioned, for example, would actually load most of firefox into memory whether you're running it or not, so that when you actually start it, it's faster. Personally, I think it's a bit silly ... If you want to avoid slow startup times, then just don't re-start it once it's started ... You achieve the exact same thing as when using the preloader.

If you want the same thing, then you can just write another application that loads the shared library in memory, and keep it running. When you start your main application, it should use the already loaded shared library, and might thus be slightly faster.

I need the .so file should be loaded into memory so that the process/exe depends on the .so  start up time will be faster
