Social Bookmarking

Most of us are familiar with the idea of keeping bookmarks or favorites in our web browsers. Social Bookmarking allows you to bookmark your favorite sites on the web for easy access from any internet connected computer. It also allows you to share your bookmarks with other. Imagine creating a class bookmark so that all students could share the great websites they are finding. Or an account for a department sharing resources with each other. The two most popular web services are diigo, and del.icio.us.
