L4 (social bookmarking)

  1. 1. Social bookmarking  Social bookmarking is a method for Internet users to store, organize, search, and manage bookmarks of web pages on the Internet with the help of metadata, typically in the form of tags that collectively and/or collaboratively become a folksonomy.  In a social bookmarking system, bookmarks are usually public, and can be saved privately, shared only with specified people or groups, shared only inside certain networks, or another combination of public and private domains. 1
  2. 2. Folksonomy and tagging  A folksonomy (derived from "folk" and "taxonomy") refers to a form of organic categorization derived from the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content . It is also known as collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing and social tagging.  Let’s see how social bookmarking works at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeBmvDpVbWc& . 2
  3. 3. Social bookmarking - Delicious  Makes it easy to have a single set of bookmarks kept in sync between all of your computers  Send your friends interesting bookmarks that they can check out the next time they log on to Delicious  See whats hot with Delicious users by checking out our popular tags 3
  4. 4. Using Delicious http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcgloI3Zw4Y offers a tutorial on a previous version of Delicious. Note that the new version appears to replace certain functions in the previous version, like “network” by “follow”, “tag bundle” by “stack” (which in fact results in a lot of user complaints). Your Delicious bookmarks can either be private or public. Read and learn other useful Delicious functions from http://delicious.com/help. 4
  5. 5. Social bookmarking in Delicious  Examine the popularity of a web site that you had listed and examine those who have tagged that resource in order to find other resources tagged by them  Look for any relevant tags used by other people which you may have missed out in your bookmarks.  “Follow” people so that you can access of any public bookmarks created by them (under the “Feed” tab). 5
  6. 6. Exercises  Create a Delicious account if you don’t have one.  Bookmark a few online resources that are relevant to your interests on Delicious.  Edit one of the online resource’s property to make it a private resource.  Check on those people who also bookmark your online resources. “Follow” those people who share a similar interest with you so that their public bookmarks can be seem under the “Feed” tab of your Delicious account. 6
  7. 7. Teaching ideas  Groups of students doing a classroom project sharing their bookmarks either sharing one Delicious account or “follow” one another  Teachers may share teaching resources in a similar way  Teachers may rate and review bookmarks to help with students decide on usefulness of resources  Examine the popularity of an online resource that a student had listed and examine those who have tagged that resource in order to find possibly useful resources bookmarked by them 7
  8. 8. Challenges to tagging  Misspelling of tags  Similar resources can’t be related due to the use of different tag names  Tags of similar meaning  E.g. fire truck vs. fire engine  Different perceptions of the material to be tagged 8
  9. 9. Slide sharing  Some slide sharing sites also support the notion of social bookmarking, e.g.  Slideshare (which offers a slidecasting function, i.e. autoplay slide show with a synchronized sound track; see http://blog.slideshare.net/2009/07/21/excellent-video-tutor for details)  Learn Slideshare’s functions, in particular, the social bookmarking features at http://www.slideshare.net/tour 9
  10. 10. Social bookmarking - Connotea  Connotea is a free online reference management service for scientists, researchers, and clinicians by which users may bookmark any web page they choose.  Connotea was originally designed for scientists (but has rapidly grown throughout academic disciplines).  Connotea recognizes a number of scientific websites and will automatically collect metadata for the article or page being bookmarked, including author and publication names. 10
  11. 11. Tutorials on Connotea  http://www.connotea.org/guide offers a few video tutorials on getting started with Connotea. The page describes a list of Connotea functions too.  Your Connotea bookmarks can either be private, public or group based. They can be exported in several electronic bibliographic formats. 11
  12. 12. Individual task (5%)  Compare the social bookmarking features of Delicious, Slideshare, and Connotea and discuss their strengths and weaknesses. Summarise your findings (preferably in form of a table) in no more than 2 pages) and post them to the relevant discussion forum on Moodle by the end of this Sunday (25 March, 2012). 12
  13. 13. COMPARISON Delicious: With tags to classify -> Find it more easily Public -> Share with others/ benefit others X Chaotic
