Social Bookmarking




YouTube plugin error




del.icio.us is one of the popular social bookmarking websites. I've created one for LWIT, but you'll likely want one of your own as you learn more about them.  Other sites include:  furl, blue dot, ma.gnolia, and more - Read WIRED's Social Bookmarking Showdown  or Robin Good's Social Bookmarking Services and Tools for reviews on the many of them.


Why Social Bookmarking?

  • Since it is web-based, a social bookmarking tool allows you to see your "bookmarks" or "favorites" from any Internet-accessible computer
  • Provides a powerful, but different, form of organization called 'tagging'
  • Allows you to share your finds with others and to discover what others are finding on the web
  • Serves as a efficient search tool
  • It's free!
