||What are Social Bookmarking Sites?
| Larry Brauner
|| My broad definition of social bookmarking sites is this:
Social bookmarking sites are websites that people use to
save, categorize, share and search bookmarks, i.e., links and
descriptive data, that refer to resources, such as web pages
and other types of web media.
Itís important to note that the resources themselves arenít
being shared on social bookmarking sites, but rather
bookmarks referring to the resources. Bookmarks themselves
are the content on social bookmarking sites.
My definition of social bookmarking sites includes not only
sites explicitly created for bookmark sharing, but
multipurpose social networking sites, as well.
