Helpful websites and links – Delicious

Standard

Just a quick post to let you know that I have started to use Delicious and you can find me at http://www.delicious.com/LivvyMarketing. For those of you who do not know what Delicious is, it is a ‘social bookmarking service that allows users to tag, save, manage, and share web pages from a centralized source’ (www.delicious.com/help/about).

If you own your own business it’s also quite interesting to pop in your business url to see who has added you to their bookmarks. It is good to see who is an advocate and/or sees your business website or webpage as being worthwhile to visit.

I personally find it quite useful, as I often access the internet on several different computers at work and home, my iPod touch and iPad, so I always have to re-save my bookmarks. According to Wikipedia, Delicious has been around since September 2003 and was acquired by Yahoo! in 2005.

Another benefit from using Delicious for bookmarking is instead of putting your bookmarks into folders you simply list all the keywords (tags) that relate to the website or page. This makes it easier to find saved bookmarks – especially if you are someone like me who in the past bookmarked many pages on my web browser, then got overwhelmed with the amount of folders and sub folders I had. Not to mention that when I upgraded my laptop I lost them all.
