Social Bookmarking

You may well save your most visited or useful websites and links as favourites on the computer you use. This all fine and well until you are working somewhere else and then cannot access them.

Social bookmarking tools allow you to save your bookmarks on their server and allow you to access them any time. In addition you can also share them and allow followers to comment. This provides a powerful research tool and a knowledge-sharing community. Below are a few of the social bookmarking tools that are available.
