  4. 4. “ Social Bookmarking Mechanics” <ul><li>Users save links to certain web pages they want to remember or share w/ others – the saved links are the “bookmarks”. </li></ul><ul><li>The “bookmarks” are usually viewable by the public, however they can be made private. </li></ul><ul><li>The user can send the “bookmarks” to certain individuals within their network if they so choose. </li></ul>
  5. 5. How do you organize “bookmarks”? <ul><li>The user must assign a key word or “tag” to each site that they “bookmark” </li></ul><ul><li>This allows for keyword-based classification and search of information </li></ul><ul><li>Examples of “tags”: Web 2.0, Baseball, Bill Clinton </li></ul>
  6. 6. Why Social “Bookmarking”? <ul><li>Tagging is done by human beings who actually understand the content of the particular website rather than relying on software algorithms. </li></ul><ul><li>Ranks resources by how many times it has been “bookmarked” by users and not by how many external links point to it. </li></ul><ul><li>Able to find resources that have not been already tagged by “web spiders”. </li></ul><ul><li>Can access your “bookmarks” from any computer </li></ul>

  9. 9. My Experience w/ “Social Bookmarking” <ul><li>Used in InfoTechTools class to bookmark certain applications and determine most popular by which one was bookmarked the most </li></ul><ul><li>“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 </li></ul>
