Diigo Groups Diigo Groups – each person (account) can create and belong to many Groups. Groups can be public or restricted to selected people.
Management of Bookmarks Management of Bookmarks is much more sophisticated than other tools. Easy to edit bookmarks, import from other sources and push to other social bookmarking accounts
Adding Bookmarks With one click add the bookmark to your Diigo Account, add to a list and add to a group.
Highlighting and Sticky Notes Not only can you bookmark but you can highlight sections of a webpage, put sticky notes and annotate a webpage. These can be private, shared with a group or public to other Diigo users. (not general public)
