del.icio.us social bookmarking

May 23, 2007

I’ve been using del.icio.us for over a year now, and have found it to be one of the best social bookmarking tools around.    Social bookmarking tools allow you to post your favourite websites and share them with other users.   I no longer use my Internet Explorer bookmarks — del.icio.us gives me instant access to all my favourite websites anytime, anywhere.

Bookmarks in del.icio.us can be shared or made private.  (So much for social bookmarking!)  Bookmarks can also be downloaded for safe-keeping, or can be transferred back into your browser. 

You can view my public bookmarks at del.icio.us/angelacw  or subscribe to the RSS feed.

Del.icio.us has some great tools.  View the help page for Firefox and Internet Explorer buttons that can automatically add websites you visit to your del.icio.us account.    You can also add other users to your ‘network’, and view their favourite sites.

Bloggers can also take advantage of  “thingy”, which automatically posts entries containing del.icio.us links to blogs.  So watch this space for my regularly updated del.icio.us links…..
