Social bookmarking is a way to let you store and share bookmarks on the web, instead of inside your browser. Here are some of the advantages of using Social Bookmarks.
First: mobility. No matter where you are, as long as you are connected to the internet, your bookmarks are accessible.
Second: sharing. You can share your bookmarks publicly, so anyone can view them for reference, amusement, collaboration, or anything else.
Third: compatibility. It’s a good way to find others with the same interests and add pages you may not know about to your collection.
If you like what you’ve read on our site and would like to share the story with a wider online audience then why not use our new ‘Share Articles’ feature.
To each one of the following links you can add the address of the story and add it into some of the most popular social content network sites (sites where the importance of the content is rated by the users) on the Internet.
Each of these sites is a virtual community of users so to use the ‘Share Articles’ feature you will be asked to register an account with each of them, the first time you visit. Once that’s done you can add as many of our stories as you want. To help you better decide which one best suits you, here is a brief description of each of the selected sites.
Digg.com > Originally a technology site Digg had now branched out into covering a wider range of topics, including entertainment and business. Click the Digg button at the foot of an article to add the story and other community users will then Digg (rate) your selection. The more popular the story the higher up the page it will become. The more Diggs your story gets the higher it will appear in the ranking. Learn more about digg.com
del.icio.us > One of the most popular social bookmark websites. Dei.icio.us is a way of storing all your favourite web-pages and then sharing then with the other users of the del.icio.us service. Once you have added your page you can also add your own keywords, or tags, making the content of the page easier to find for all the other users. Learn a bit more about del.icio.us
NewsVine > Launched in late 2005 NewsVine is one of the foremost online news communities, letting you decide which stories are important. NewsVines users can write their own articles, seed articles (which is what you’ll be doing by adding in links to our stories) or comment on existing articles on the site. With NewsVine you get to be editor of your own news by deciding which stories really matter, and your opinions will alter the overall ranking of the stories on the site. Read more about NewsVine
