I’ve been using Delicious for sometime to manage my internet bookmarks. Delicious is a useful social bookmarking tool, you create an account and start to bookmark websites and add tags which help you to manage your bookmarks and help you find them again relatively easily. As this is a web-based application you can access your bookmarks from any PC/Mac with an internet connection.
Today I came across another social bookmarking site, Diigo, which not only allows you to bookmark webpages but to highlight sections of the page, add sticky notes and share these sites with others that you are working with. You can also search other peoples’ lists and also convert a list into a slideshow which you can then embed in a blog or other webpage etc. There are several blogs and educational social networks which are getting quite excited about how Diigo can be used to support learning and research groups.
Check out this YouTube video which gives an overview of social bookmarking and how you can highlight and share the web using Diigo.
