Sharing the internet: Social bookmarking

Staying organized isn’t easy. Staying organized online can be even harder. Social bookmarking provides the answer to this problem. It gives you control over your favourite weblinks and lets you share them with others as well.

Social bookmarking can be divided into two main uses: private use and network use.

Private use is good for:

  • keeping track of research
  • organizing lists such as online cooking recipes
  • managing your online shopping

Network use is good for:

  • group projects
  • sharing your favourite weblinks
  • collaboration
  • knowledge mobilization

It’s a good idea to remember the privacy post when sharing your bookmarks with others.

To figure out which social bookmarking software works best for you, you’ll have to do a bit of trial and error. The most popular sites can be found here.
