  • 12. How Does Social Bookmarking WorK? The creator of a bookmark assigns tags to each resource, resulting in a user-directed method of classifying information. Because social bookmarking services indicate who created each bookmark and provide access to that person’s other bookmarked resources, users can easily make social connections with other individuals interested in just about any topic. Users can also see how many people have used a tag and search for all resources that have been assigned that tag. This makes research a collaborative effort.
