  1. 1. Delicious<br />Social bookmarking at its finest!<br />Ericka Brunson<br />
  2. 2. What is Social Bookmarking?<br />Social Bookmarking sites were created for online users to share, gather, organize, and search for information. This is done through bookmarking, or flagging resources for future use. Think of it like bookmarking a page in a book…you aren't copying all the information so you can read it later or share it with a friend, you are marking the spot so you can return to the same page. <br />There is so much information on the internet, sometimes it’s hard to remember where you left off!<br />
  3. 3. What’s so “delicious” about it?<br />A delicious history <br />(<br />Originally called, this site is a owned site that allows users to share and “tag” items.<br />The site was originally created in 2003, but rights were purchased by in 2005.<br /> Due to these changes you need a account to register with Delicious.<br />
  4. 4. Delicious aspects…<br />With delicious you can not only save your information, you can organize it too…through some of these great tools…<br />Tagging: you can add your own personal “tag”, or label, to the site to keep it organized.<br />Bulk Edit: You can edit, or tag, groups of resources at once- which is fast and easy!<br />Tag Roll: you can save tags on a website or blog.<br />Send: You can share items with everyone but you can also send a certain resources to an individual if you know their delicious name!<br />Tag Bundle: You can organize your resources that may be related or easy for you to locate. Think of it like a folder. You can put an article under as many tag bundles as you want!<br />Link Roll: you can save links from your account on a web site of blog.<br />
  5. 5. In the mood for something delicious?<br />Easy to use, interactive, simple to navigate. <br /> - Let’s take a look!<br />You can get what’s hot and what’s new...either worldwide or keep it specific to your interests. <br />You can see what your friends are sharing!<br />You can syndicate it to your RSS feeds…but that’s another presentation!<br />View and browse popular Tags and Keywords (by subject, too!). You may find something you didn’t even know you were looking for. I can! <br />Or View a 3 minute and 22 second video that explains it better than I can.<br />
  6. 6. So delicious… but is it easy? Is it safe?<br />What about all of my other saved bookmarks? Do not fear, my friends… I know having the easy access to sites from a bookmarked tab is convenient and easy, but luckily Delicious knows this too. You can import your existing bookmarks easily by following the instructions under the “settings” tab on the site.<br />I don’t want strangers having access to what I look at online!<br /> Again, no worries! Unlike some “social” sites, you get to be only as social as you want. You can bookmark for yourself, or share sites with a few, or even share with the whole world. Who knew bookmarking could be so…delicious? <br />
  7. 7. How does it help librarians?<br />There are quite a few Library’s and lots and lots of librarians that use delicious. When you have to resource hundreds of sites and need access to overwhelming amounts of information…organizing through bookmarks is a great way to help navigate all that information! Not to mention this is a librarian’s networking dream! To be able to share information, sites, resources instantly and related to ones information interests? Now that’s what I call delicious.<br />
