Power of Social Bookmarking Reflection
I was amazed to learn of all the connections that Social Bookmarking has to offer. First off, I love organization, and learning that I can organize and group all the sites I want saved into one folder was beyond amazing for me. Secondly, by using Social Bookmarking I am connecting myself to different people and schools across the world. That is a definite plus knowing that if I need more information-help is right at my fingertips. Thirdly I can not express how valuable social bookmarking is in terms of time saving. By seeing the dependability of the sites I want by others who have bookmarked the same site, can save me hours of research time. Most conveniently is the fact that I can have access to any site I have saved on any computer. I never have to worry about forgetting that website address, or have to spend time looking for it again!

“ The buzz surrounding so-called Web 2.0 technologies is deafening and, in my opinion, deservedly so. While sites like MySpace and YouTube have garnered most of the attention, I think the trend of "social bookmarking," otherwise known as "tagging," just might be the most interesting development of all. “ -Roger Riddell This quote was the most powerful sentence that I read in all the articles because in my opinion I agree 100%. There are new technologies created everyday, and social bookmarking so far is the most interesting. Social Bookmarking can be used in so many ways, and is something that virtually anybody can find use for. It is even perfect for those who love organization. Social Bookmarking gives you legitimate sites and saves you hours of pointless research. One of the most intriguing things about social bookmarking is the ability you have to connect with other people, teachers, students, employer, etc around the world. If you ever in need of information on a certain topic you can link to others for more credible and quick websites. The best thing and by far the most interesting is the fact that it is not only a viable resource for teachers in education, but for students as well.
