Social Bookmarking “How to”

by ohdanyel

Just what is Social Bookmarking? We all want to remember important links, and some of you might be used to adding webpages to “Favourites” or “Bookmarks” on your web browsers, but Social Bookmarking allows you to do this on a web page, so you can access it from anywhere instead of the list being tied to your computer.

Common Craft makes excellent how-to videos, and their “Social Bookmarking in Plain English” really came in handy when figuring out what Social Bookmarking is all about and how to get started with it.

What I love about this video is the simplicity in describing the process of Social Bookmarking, and I thought the graphics were humorous and made the video more enjoyable. This video also helps to explain how to use tags, and why they are so important. It uses Delicious as its example, and this is one of my favourite Social Bookmarking sites, but there are many others operating in the same facet, such as StumbleUpon and Twine.

Take a look at my delicious to see what I like. With Social Bookmarking, you can add other bookmarkers with similar interests to your network, so you never miss a thing! This is an extremely helpful tool when you want to remember a Public Relations blog you’ve found, and you can get suggestions from other users.
