Social Bookmarking

Updated on March 19, 2013

Top Social Bookmarking Sites

What exactly is "Social Bookmarking"?

Social bookmarking is a way for Internet users to share, organize, search, and manage "bookmarks" of websites. Its not like file sharing, the websites themselves aren't shared, merely bookmarks that reference them. A bookmark is essentially a link - with a little bit of info about the website. Generally this includes a title, description and tags. Social Bookmarking sites are a great way to enjoy your time online - linking you to hundreds of fun or interesting web pages. Individuals interested in SEO also find use of social bookmarking sites as they tend to be easy places to gain backlinks - they also can drive traffic to a website.

In this Lens I will list a handful of the very best social bookmarking sites

Digg

http://www.digg.com

Digg is a social news website made for people to discover and share content from anywhere on the Internet, by submitting links and stories, and voting and commenting on submitted links and stories. This comes in as a close second in my mind to stumbleupon.com

Delicious

http://www.delicious.com/

Delicious (formerly del.icio.us, pronounced "delicious") also a social bookmarking web service for storing, sharing, and discovering web bookmarks. The site was founded by Joshua Schachter in 2003 and acquired by Yahoo! in 2005

StumbleUpon

http://www.stumbleupon.com

This is my Particular Favorite

StumbleUpon is an Internet community that allows its users to discover and rate Web pages, photos, and videos. It is a personalized recommendation engine which uses peer and social-networking principles.

Mister Wong

http://www.mister-wong.com

Some might argue with me on this one but its one of my very favorites. Mister-Wong is another social bookmarking site that allows you to post links to the websites you like most. Its also a great way to search and discover new and interesting websites.

Reddit

http://www.reddit.com

This is a fun one!

Reddit is a social news website owned by Conde Nast Digital -- users can post links to content on the Internet. Other users may then vote the posted links up or down, causing them to become more or less prominent on the reddit home page.

Friendster

http://www.friendster.com/

is a privately owned social networking website with headquarters in Sydney, Australia. Friendster allows users to contact other members, maintain those contacts, and share online content and media with those contacts.
