Diigo – social bookmarking

Social bookmarking is a method for Internet users to organize, store, manage and search for bookmarks of resources online. Two of the more popular bookmarking services available are Diigo and Delicious Tagging is a significant feature of both of these social bookmarking systems, enabling users to organize their bookmarks in flexible ways. I have an account on both systems but my favourite by a long shot is Diigo.

Finding Websites again, again and again!!

Have you ever bookmarked a website that you found useful, but could not find the bookmark later? Having literally hundreds of websites bookmarked on various computers that I’ve used in the last few years – “loosing” bookmarks became a regular occurrence for me. That is until I discovered the concept of social bookmarking. Social bookmarking is a method for Internet users to organize, store, manage and search for bookmarks of resources online. Unlike file sharing, the resources themselves aren’t shared, merely bookmarks that reference them. Most social bookmark services encourage users to organize their bookmarks with informal tags instead of the traditional browser-based system of folders, although some services feature categories/folders or a combination of folders and tags. They also enable viewing bookmarks associated with a chosen tag, and include information about the number of users who have bookmarked them. There are various options open to you for social bookmarking. The one I like best is Diigo. Find out more about more about diigo on www.diigo.com. Sign up for free, it is incredibly simple.
