According to Answers.com, Social bookmarking is: “an activity performed over a computer network that allows users to save and categorize (see folksonomy) a personal collection of bookmarks and share them with others. Users may also take bookmarks saved by others and add them to their own collection, as well as to subscribe to the lists of others.”
Basically this means that instead of adding favourites or bookmarks in my browser of the moment, I collect and store interesting links online. My personal gain here is that I have build, and am building, an archive which I can reach regardless on which pc/mac I work. In the process the archive has become searchable and shareable. Many times I’ve discovered a valuable source through my social bookmarking peers.
Below you’ll find a short overview of my recent ‘social bookmarks’ at ‘Delicious‘.
