Social Bookmarking Survey



Djoeke, the Community Manager for blinklist.com (a social bookmarking company), is doing a survey on social bookmarking, and thought it would be dandy if I linked to the survey. So here’s the link. They’re hoping for 1000 responses.

    I have no idea what social bookmarking is!!

    Hi,

    I don’t think people are using these sites. Only webmaster can make use of them to get onewaylinks.

    IE7, Netscape, Mozilla all allow bookmarking so why does one has to furl his sites or delicious them? Just to rate them?

    For fun… I got confused now. People like social sites like myspace.

    My opinion!

    Karl – you’re missing the point of social bookmarking. Here are a few things this newer type of bookmarking can do that bookmarking in a web browser can’t do:

    1. with social bookmarking, I can access my bookmarks anywhere. With browser bookmarking, your bookmarks are chained to a specific PC

    2. Other people can subscribe to my social bookmark list (can’t do this with browser bookmarking)

    3. Social bookmark feeds can be ported over to different places, like a library website – it can show up in more than one place on the web (again, you can’t do this with browser-based bookmarking)

    4. I can add tags, a description, notes, and even copy/paste parts or all of the website into my bookmark record with social bookmarking tools. Again, can’t do thst with browser bookmarking.

    Hope this helps!
