Here are some great websites to take a look at for social bookmarking (excluding Twitter and related web applications). Social bookmarking tools can be used to find recommendations, what is popular, share what you love, and find further information on a topic. This recent article by eBizMBA lists the top 15 of February 2012. The hottest social bookmarking website right now is Pinterest. It does look pretty cool. I wish I had the time to use all these social bookmarking tools!
Pinterest – “Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.” I love how visually-based this website is! With such cool pin boards as “Plan a Wedding” or “Save your inspirations.”
Reddit – “The front page of the Internet.” Lists links and ranks the most popular websites on the Internet and websites that are trending.
Delicious – “Delicious helps you find cool stuff and collect it for easy sharing. Dig into stacks created by the community, and then build your own!”
Digg – “Digg is a place for people to discover and share content from anywhere on the web. From the biggest online destinations to the most obscure blog, Digg surfaces the best stuff as voted on by our community.”
StumbleUpon – “We help you explore new and interesting things from every corner of the Web.” You tell StumbleUpon what you like and it will recommend web pages, videos, photos and more that “you wouldn’t have found on your own.”
GetGlue – “GetGlue is a social network for entertainment. Users check-in and share what they are watching, listening to and reading with friends; get fresh recommendations, exclusive stickers, discounts and other rewards from their favorite shows and movies.”
