Social bookmarking and online planning

19 January 2009

During the research for the online community, we have noticed how useful the social bookmarking service Delicious.com is:

  • We can save web pages giving important information for the online community project, and have instant access to them whenever we sign in.
  • We can also share them with other people by adding them as a contact and comment on their bookmarks.
  • Unlike bookmarking in web browsers, you don’t have to worry about slowing your internet down or switching between browsers.
  • Delicious.com can also be useful when defining search keywords, which saves time.

The Delicious toolbar can also be installed so you don’t have to open a new window each time you add a bookmark.

Have you used Delicious.com to improve your online communications?

Do you use any other social networking or social bookmarking tools you would like to post a comment on?
