I think that Del.icio.us is one of the most useful Web 2.0 tools. It facilitates:
– saving and accessing your bookmarks online
– promoting your own sites (you bookmark in Del.icio.us your best pages, don’t you?)
– finding bookmarks from other users on your network (they are searching for relevant sites for you)
– networking with other users who are in your network.
– reading your network’s bookmarks, since Del.icio.us provides convenient RSS feeds.
– use a “profile” tag, such as emapey’s bookmarks tagged with “profile” on del.icio.us to feature your sites, best posts and articles and important sites linking to you.
