CIS 1103 - Introduction to Computing: Social Bookmarking

What is social bookmarking?

Social bookmarking is a method by which internet users may organize, store, tag, manage and search for web resource links that are available online.

A social bookmarking site enables a user to create a personal directory of his/her personal links. These sites also enable users to assign any and/or as many tags and/or categories to each link in their directory.

Some sites - such as Delicious - allow users to communicate and share resources with other users with similar personal directories. Social bookmarking sites also enable users to find information on the net by clicking on tags generated by other users.
