    Social Bookmarking Social Bookmarking Presentation Transcript

    • “ Social Bookmarking” InfoTechTools Learning Unit 11 Chris Allen
    • What is “Social Bookmarking”?
      • A method for internet users to store, organize, search, and manage bookmarks of web pages on the internet.
    • What do you need?
      • The internet user will 1 st have to download one of the following popular “bookmarking” tools:
      • Mixx
      • Newsvine
      • Simpy
      • SiteBar
      • StumbleUpon
      • BookmarkSync
      • del.icio.us
      • Blue Dot
      • CiteULike
      • Digg
      • Diigo
      • Furl
    • “ Social Bookmarking Mechanics”
      • Users save links to certain web pages they want to remember or share w/ others – the saved links are the “bookmarks”.
      • The “bookmarks” are usually viewable by the public, however they can be made private.
      • The user can send the “bookmarks” to certain individuals within their network if they so choose.
    • How do you organize “bookmarks”?
      • The user must assign a key word or “tag” to each site that they “bookmark”
      • This allows for keyword-based classification and search of information
      • Examples of “tags”: Web 2.0, Baseball, Bill Clinton
    • Why Social “Bookmarking”?
      • Tagging is done by human beings who actually understand the content of the particular website rather than relying on software algorithms.
      • Ranks resources by how many times it has been “bookmarked” by users and not by how many external links point to it.
      • Able to find resources that have not been already tagged by “web spiders”.
      • Can access your “bookmarks” from any computer
    • How easy is it to “Social Bookmark”?
      • The following demo shows just how easy it is to partake in the “Social Bookmarking” Revolution
        • Please click on the picture below to start the demo
    • Drawbacks of Social “Bookmarking”
      • There is no adopted standard for proper “tagging” method
        • Misspelling
        • Synonym/Antonym Confusion
        • No way to indicate hierarchical relationships
      • Spammers are starting to use popular “tags” to describe their website therefore misleading the users to their site(s).
    • My Experience w/ “Social Bookmarking”
      • Used in InfoTechTools class to bookmark certain applications and determine most popular by which one was bookmarked the most
      • “Bookmarked” sites that provided useful information for a research report so other contributors to the report did not have to waste time finding the same sites I already did
