Del.icio.us Social Bookmarking is a great way to find information that other internet users find helpful.
The basic idea is to use “tags” to label each link saved to your Del.icio.us folder. One can then see other links with similar tags. Each link can have multiple tags. By using tags, one does not need to keep a huge list of hierarchical bookmarks/favorites, but rely on the tags to find helpful sites. The biggest benefit is access to one’s Del.icio.us bookmarks from any computer on the internet.
It is easy to see what other Del.icio.us users find important on a day-to-day basis, and one can often find new web sites that if you knew it existed, you would have already tagged it.
By submitting your own favorite websites, you help shape the views of all the other Del.icio.us users. This is truly a melting pot of ideas.
