Social Bookmarking – Overview and Uses
Browsers usually have a feature which allows you to record a website that you like. But it is a list that is resident on that computer only.
Social bookmarking is a way to upload and organize the sites you normally would ‘bookmark’ so that they are accessible and shareable at any time from any computer.
To quote D-Lib magazine:
(http://www.dlib.org/dlib/april05/hammond/04hammond.html) “Just as long as those hyperlinks (or let’s call them plain old links) are managed, tagged, commented upon, and published onto the Web, they represent a user’s own personal library placed on public record, which – when aggregated with other personal libraries – allows for rich, social networking opportunities.”
