On our site you've probably noticed since early 2008, the presence of one of these buttons : or
At least one of them is present at the end of each article and its summary. Some of you surely know about it, but this may not be the case for everyone. (Author's note : I must confess that I recently discovered it).
So ... what can it be ?
So I asked DV, and he replied "That's social bookmarking". Not surprisingly, always looking for innovations he has implemented this service on his site as soon as possible. I tried to understand the term "Social bookmarking" and I finally found a complete article on this subject.
In short, even if I had made a shortcut with the bookmark function of my web browser, I had no idea how powerful it was.
You would like to know more ?
Well, in short, social bookmarking is more or less the same than bookmarks that we use in our favorite web browser. However, it allows, in addition, the sharing of these bookmarks to benefit others. These lists of favorite pages are accessible to users of a network or website. Other users can view them.
I even found a video demo. I must say that the site used for the demo is an example.
In short, you have to choose your bookmark manager. You move your mouse over the button SHARE or PARTAGER (without clicking) to open the window below :
then you start a new way of ranking your favorites.
This tool can be useful for those who travel a lot, or enliven clubs. It helps to have around his favorites at his disposal, regardless of the computer environment.
Remember that you can share your choices with the community, but also you can use the community to improve your knowledge.
Rather than rhetoric, in the expanded list
I looked for a site, and I selected (randomly) the site Yoolink.us
Simple registration procedure, it is fairly comprehensive, there is even a short video explaining the use of the site.
Result ? If you search for me, you will find me with a registered article,
(in the French version of the site), and, again by clicking on my nickname you will have access to items marked and other opportunities that I let you discover.
