Social bookmarking is a method for Internet users to store, organize, search, and manage bookmarks of web pages on the Internet with the help of metadata, typically in the form of tags that collectively and/or collaboratively become a folksonomy.
Folksonomy is also called social tagging, “the process by which many users add metadata in the form of keywords to shared content”.
In a social bookmarking system, users save links to web pages that they want to remember and/or share. These bookmarks are usually public, and can be saved privately, shared only with specified people or groups, shared only inside certain networks, or another combination of public and private domains. The allowed people can usually view these bookmarks chronologically, by category or tags, or via a search engine.
So how can this help your blog or web site? Social Bookmarks help to spread the news that is on your site. It can be in the form of a blog, an article or even a press release. Here are a list of five social bookmarks that we like to use:
