Social Bookmarking


Social bookmarking systems 'allow users to create lists of ‘bookmarks’ or ‘favourites’, to store these centrally on a remote service (rather than within the client browser) and to share them with other users of the system (the‘social’ aspect). These bookmarks can also be tagged with keywords, and an important difference from the ‘folder-based' categorisation used in traditional, browser-based bookmark lists is that a bookmark can belong in more than one category.'

(Source:Anderson, P 2007, What is Web 2.0? Ideas, technologies and implications for education,JISC Technology and Standards Watch, Feb. 2007, viewed 18 April 2007, http://www.jisc.ac.uk/media/documents/techwatch/tsw0701b.pdf)



A tag is a keyword that is added to a digital object (e.g. a website, picture or video clip) to describe it.  This user generated labelling system has become known as a folksonomy.



Del.icio.us... a social bookmarking tool


Del.icio.us is a social bookmarking tool that allows you to keep your bookmarks, or favourites, online, rather than on your computer. This means you can access them from any computer connected to the internet.  You can share your bookmarks with others and they can share theirs with you. Alternatively, you can select to keep some of your bookmarks private.
