I am in the middle of a new project with some friends and one of them decided to bring in this girl who has the experience we need for the project. She is quite the techie and her inputs have proved very valuable. One thing she kept talking about though is social bookmarking. I am no slouch in matters involving computer and internet technology but I have to admit that I am not very familiar with the term social bookmarking — maybe because the term uses the word “social”, which I am not online. But when she said dropped names like Digg, Del.icio.us, and reddit I realized that I was just wasn’t familiar with the term but I did understand the concept.
This techgirl is champioining social bookmarking as a great way of building links and being a more efficient way of finding related information on a particular subject. I have to agree, social bookmarking has really made it easier to do research or just read up on topics that are of particular interest to a person. It lessens the dependence on search engine results and is more intuitive and accurate.
Social bookmarking marks another step in the evolution of the internet.
