Using in Education

I think that 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 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 provides convenient RSS feeds.
– use a “profile” tag, such as emapey’s bookmarks tagged with “profile” on to feature your sites, best posts and articles and important sites linking to you.

  1. Thanks for the link. Diigo is really my primary bookmarking tool, but I keep everything in too. Diigo has some better options for sharing links with groups and friends; you can share links with just part of your network, for example. still has a much bigger user base and network though. I use it now to search what other people have bookmarked on a topic. I usually start my search on Diigo, but if I can’t find what I need there, I switch to Both are good services, just for different tasks.
