    •  “Similar to web browser bookmarks, social bookmarking stores individual pages online and allows you to tag them. For people who like to frequently bookmark web pages, this can provide an easier way to organize the bookmarks.” Social bookmarking is bookmarking in public.Nations, D. (n.d.). The web 2.0 glossary (R-Z): Social bookmarking. Retrieved from http://webtrends.about.com/od/web20/a/web20-glossary_2.htm © Michelle Post, Ph.D. 3
    •  “The creator of a bookmark assigns tags to each resource, resulting in a user-directed, “amateur” 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.”Educause.

    •  “Social bookmarking has several advantages over traditional resource location and classification software, such as search engine spiders. All tag-based sorting and classification of Internet Web sites, is done by human beings, who understand the content of the resource, whereas, a computer software electronically attempts to determine the meaning or value, of a resource or site. Your bookmarks are accessible not just from one computer, but from anywhere you can access the Web; and second, instead of having a huge list of disorganized bookmarks or favorites in your browser, you have a database of organized bookmarks where its easy to locate what you need.”Doctor, V. A. (n.d.). Social bookmarking for beginners - how does It work? Retrieved from http://ezinearticles.com/?Social-Bookmarking-For-Beginners---How-Does-It-Work?&id=872520 © Michelle Post, Ph.D. 5
    •  “New technologies like “diigo” allows you to create micro communities and adds much greater value to “social” bookmarking. You can be a part of multiple groups – which are often topical in nature. There are all kinds of different options that allow you to discuss bookmarks in comment threads and in a forum.”Brudtkuhl, A. (2008, November 12). Diggo groups is future of social bookmarking. Retrieved from http://getanewbrowser.com/2008/11/diigo-groups-is-future-of-social-bookmarking/ © Michelle Post, Ph.D. 6
    •  “You are performing some detailed research on a topic, creating bookmarks on your browser link can help you make the process of researching, compiling, and writing, much faster. Even better, once you are done, it is possible to save these bookmarks for later use.”Squidoo. (n.d.). How can Social Bookmarking benefit business owners. Retrieved from http://www.squidoo.com/How-Can-Social-Bookmarking-Benefit-Business-Owners Locating web resources that you may never knew existed © Michelle Post, Ph.D. 7
    •  Social bookmarking sites have been useful in the past for driving traffic and building backlinks to your site. “Social bookmarking sites, such as Digg, Redd-It, StumbleUpon and others, allow Internet users to rank and store websites, blogs, articles, videos and other types of website content.”Duermyer, R. (2008, January 28). How to use Social Bookmarking to promote your business.
