Social Bookmarking

                                                     

 

Social Bookmarking is a way for Internet users to save links to web pages that they want to remember and/or share, and access them from different computers. The webpages themselves aren’t saved, only the bookmarks that reference them. Tagging is an important feature of social bookmarking systems, letting users organize their bookmarks in flexible ways and develop shared vocabularies known as folksonomies.

There are many online bookmark management services such as Delicious, Diigo, digg, StumbleUpon, and Reddit.
