Social Bookmarking – Diigo

Web Tools for Learners

Social bookmarking is one of the most useful aspects of the web. Although I’ve been using some form of social bookmarking for years, every so often I want to review what I can do with the social bookmarking tools I use. Currently I use Diigo and del.icio.us. It’s no extra work, because I can save to Diigo and have my new bookmark automatically added to my del.icio.us Diigo to del.icio.us. My del.icio.us
