Essential Journalism – DeliciousPosted: February 6, 2012 | |
One research site we might look at today is Delicious - it's a social bookmarking tool – which means it allows you to store bookmarks online and then share those bookmarks with other Delicious users…
The site has recently be revamped by its new owners – the guys who started YouTube. They bought Delicious from Yahoo around a year ago. Before that it had been left to languish a bit. The new owners have added new social features and made the site a bit more visual. There are lots of other sites around that do similar things – for example, Diigo and Pinboard. It's worth playing around with them and seeing which one works best for you.
Today we'll talk a bit about how best to use social bookmarking tools as part of your approach to research online.
