Social Bookmarking

7 Aug

Here’s a video that explains why using a site such as can be useful. I think they may have failed to mention that you can mark bookmarks as private on, so it’s not necessary to expose your bookmarks to the world. However, in my case, I only mark a small fraction as private.

I’ve been using for quite some time. After I had been using it for a while, I realized that it had been a long time since I bookmarked something in my browser because I had developed a habit of bookmarking in Most browsers force you into placing a bookmark into a hierarchical, or directory, structure, but on you can assign as many “tags” as you like to a particular bookmark so you can search for things more easily. also allows you to export your bookmarks so you aren’t at the mercy of a proprietary service.

Another thing that is handy is to subscribe to the feeds of your friends to be automatically notified when they bookmark something that may be of interest.
