Bookmarking

The so called “bookmarking” system allows to save and share links to your favourite stories, tools and communities; it is some  sort of creating a menu that you can access from anywhere , and that you can allow friends to see.

There are lots of social bookmarking services, and each of one is a bit different. But they all work basically the same way: you set up a profile online, and save your favourite links to that profile. We can say, then, that a list of bookmarks is the result of human action, we filter the sites we view and list links only to those sites that provide value. 

For users, social bookmarking can be useful as a way to access a consolidated set of bookmarks from various computers, organize large numbers of bookmarks, and share bookmarks with contacts. Libraries have found social bookmarking to be useful as an easy way to provide lists of innovative links to patrons.

The concept of bookmarking dates back to April 1996 with the launch of itList, the features of which included public and private bookmarks. Within the next three years, online bookmark services became competitive as more companies grew up in this field. They provided folders for organizing bookmarks, and some services automatically sorted bookmarks into folders.

  1. The post is OK, but there is no link or reference, so it is disappointing because many people have talked before about social bookmarking and you are not saying any thing new.
