What is Social Bookmarking?
You may think the phrase social bookmarking is completely new to you; however, there's a change you've already used social bookmarking and just didn’t realize that's what you were doing. Have you ever been on a website that was so interesting, you just had to send the link to it to a friend or family member? If so, you were doing social bookmarking.
Any time you "tag" a website and save it for later, you're participating in social bookmarking. A tag is a keyword used to describe a website or specific article. Rather than saving the link in your browser (like with internet history), you're saving it on the web where it can be shared with others.
How Social Bookmarking Can Help You ?
Social bookmarking sites offer you so many possibilities on the web and are described in so many ways, but the way I most like to refer to them is intel igent search engines. If you're looking for something on a social bookmarking site, al you have to do is type what you're looking for in the searching tool and tags or links wil pop up for you.
Whether you're on the internet for work or just browsing for fun, you're going to find a lot of websites that are interesting and worth sharing with friends and family members. You could always cal them up and very slowly read the entire web address to them (and hope they get each letter correctly), but that would take forever.
You could always send the link to their email address. However, if your friend is not someone that checks their email regularly, they're not going to get your link as soon as you'd like.
However, many people use social bookmarking sites. By posting your link on any one of many social bookmarking sites, it can be easily shared by your friends, family members or anyone on the web.
Social bookmarking is a great way to get in some real advertising as wel . Few things are more difficult than getting traffic to a new website. However, with the right tags, mil ions of people can see your link, whether it's for pleasure or business.
