Introduction to Social Bookmarking
- Never lose web sites again
- Share with others easily
A new class of online tools lets you bookmark web sites you find into a personal web archive, lets you organize them by categories or subject tags, lets you share them by subject with others, and recommends other web content or users' archive streams similar to what you've bookmarked. This is only the beginning of what some tools offer. Several also save you a cached copy of what the page looked like when you bookmarked it.
The basic idea is to allow web users to collaboratively classify what they find on the web, instead of relying on centralized systems of organization and discovery. My Furl.net archive can be viewed here.
