Things you should know about social bookmarking
A social bookmark enables you to tag and save lists of resources that you come across. You can also share your lists with others who share the same interests. This is not just limited to websites; it can include musics, recipes, videos, RSS feeds, articles, maps, products – anything that you want to bookmark, you can add to your list.
Setting up a social bookmark
Social bookmarking sites are free to sign-up. For most you will need to set up an account, which can be done in just a few minutes. Once you’re all set up, you can start bookmarking your favorite resources.
As a business tool, internet marketers use social bookmarking sites to spread the word about their online businesses. The most you bookmark, the more visibility your business receives. As you can imagine, this bookmarking can take an awful lot of time, especially since there are so many different sites available. The good news is that there are bookmarking tools available to make this process a little easier. There are also internet marketing companies and social bookmarking services that specialize in building your business through social bookmarking.
Some of the more popular bookmarking sites are Netvouz, Diigo, Del.icio.us, Digg, Stumbleupon, Twitter, Kirtsy, the list goes on and on. There are literally thousands of social bookmarking sites across the internet where you can save all of your bookmarks online, share them, as well as see what other people have bookmarked.
Another benefit of a social bookmark is you can search for others who are interested in the same things. For instance, if you are in the good housekeeping recipes niche, you can quickly find others who are interested in the same thing. This makes for a great networking and advertising tool because you can bookmark your own business and others searching for good housekeeping recipes information, will come across your website.
