You may have tens of bookmarks but thousands of Furl entries. If you read your local newspaper online every morning, bookmark it. If you read several fascinating news articles every week, Furl them. </li></ul>
  11. 12. Social Library and furl <ul><li>Once you start Furling items on a regular basis, there are several ways you can share that information with friends and colleagues: Give them the URL . The simplest way is to give them the URL to your entries: http:// </li></ul><ul><li>Sign them up for a daily email. Another great option is for your friends to subscribe to your archive. If they sign up for a free account and then go to the subscription page , they can get a daily email with all of your top entries. If they don't have an account, you can also add them to your subscriber list manually from your subscriber page. </li></ul><ul><li>Give them an RSS feed. If your friends prefer to get their news through RSS and a news aggregator, you can give them the URL to your RSS feed: http:// . You can customize this feed by adding the &quot;topic&quot; and &quot;count&quot; parameters. The topic parameter is used to specify a topic name, and the count specifies how many items appear in the feed (10 by default). For example: http:// = General&count =5 (this feed will be empty if you don't have any items in the &quot;General&quot; topic). </li></ul>
  12. 13. Additional Furl Uses <ul><li>Schoolwork Students say Furl is invaluable for saving and retrieving their online research. They can also access this material whether at home, school or the library. </li></ul><ul><li>Teaching Educators tell us they use Furl to share resources with their students. Reference librarians are also using it to share new resources on specialty subjects with their patrons. </li></ul><ul><li>Saving Online Articles for Later When you find an interesting article but don't have time to read it, Furl it and uncheck the &quot;mark as read&quot; box. This is a favorite Furl function for many members, particularly Furl's founder, Mike Giles. </li></ul><ul><li>Reading Lists One member says she uses Furl to keep a list of books she wants to read. It's also a good way to list the books you've read, share recommendations with friends, or to make lists for your book group. </li></ul>
