Help with Social Bookmarking


What is social bookmarking?

Every feature page, king list page, and index page in the History Files now has an extra utility on the History Files toolbar. This is located at the base of each page.

This is a link to one of the new breed of social bookmarking sites.

According to the free internet encyclopaedia web site, Wikipedia, "social bookmarking is a way for internet users to store, classify, share and search Internet bookmarks.

"On a social bookmarking system or network, users store lists of Internet resources that they find useful. These lists can be accessible to the public by users of a specific network or web site. Other users with similar interests can view the links by topic, category, tags, or even randomly.

"Other than web page bookmarks, services specialised to a specific subject or format [RSS-style] feeds, books, videos, shopping items, map locations, wineries, etc can be found."

An additional advantage is that, because these stored lists are online, you will be able to access them from any computer, anywhere in the world, so your favourite pages from the History Files will always be available at your fingertips, with no searching necessary.

How to use social bookmarking

Such social networks and bookmarking sites are usually free to use, but you will be required to register before you can start to use them yourself.

You will also need to be registered with these sites before you can bookmark your own favourite web pages, such as those on the History Files, via the Share with links at the foot of every page.
