Historious http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/historious-takes-bookmarking-level/ Historious
Historious. It’s an interesting mix of Delicious and Google.
It has the whole package; free, located in the cloud, and the general overview actually improves with an increase of quantity. While using this service, my bookmarks have surpassed the privileged (and static) two dozen websites, now growing with a couple of websites per day. Missing is the social aspects that are found in Dilicious and Diigo ... i.e. not able to benefit from others.
Diigo -- the social bookmarking Web 2.0 application http://www.learnitin5.com/Diigo How-to video: Diigo -- the social bookmarking Web 2.0 application "Like the social bookmarking Web 2.0 application, Delicious, Diigo allows students and teachers to bookmark web sites and categorize them with tags for future use.
An Internet-based Web 2.0 application, Diigo can be accessed from any place, making it easy for students to find their saved web sites."
Delicious in the K-12 Classroom (inc Screencast) http://www.learnitin5.com/Social-Bookmarking-in-the-K12-Classroom How to use the social bookmarking site Delicious in the K-12 Classroom "Social bookmarking is a kind of social media or social networking that most people do not immediately consider as part of the Web 2.0 world. Like Twitter or Ning, though, Delicious is a social network that can be used quite efficiently in today's technology classroom, as Delicious is very much a sharing tool, similar to Diigo.
Delicious allows users to bookmark or save any web site and categorize it with "tags." These bookmarked sites and tags can then be shared with anyone the Delicious user allows to see them.
Delicious is a powerful way for teachers to share web sites"
Ultimate Guide to Delicious Bookmarking http://bit.ly/ce3rXm Ultimate Guide to Delicious Bookmarking "My favorite social media tool is social bookmarking service Delicious. I’ve always been an avid researcher and Delicious allows me to discover, save, organize and share information that I find online like no other service. It’s the engine of many of the blog posts I put together."
Sqworl http://sqworl.com/ Sqworl is a web application that provides a clean and simple way to visually bookmark multiple URLs.
LiveBinder (free) http://www.livebinders.com/ LiveBinder is dedicated to helping you empower others with the information you worked hard to collect.
If you're like us, you've used 'creative' tactics to keep track of all these links either through email, word documents or endless lists in your browser bookmarks folder. It is hard to put a bunch of links together in any meaningful format. And sharing a group of URLs is cumbersome for everyone - the sender and the receiver. Have you ever looked through your bookmarks list and forgotten what they are all for?
We created LiveBinders so that you could do with digital information what you do with the papers on your desk - organize them into nice containers - like 3-ring binders on your shelf.
Pinboard http://www.pinboard.in/ Pinboard is a bookmarking website built by Maciej Cegłowski, a Polish programmer living in Romania.
This site is intended for people who want to reliably keep track of large numbers of links.
The goals of this web site are to be useful, fight bloat, keep things fast, and stay small.
Why We Like Diigo http://schoolcomputing.wikia.com/wiki/Why_We_Like_Diigo Why We Like Diigo "Diigo is a social bookmarking site similar to Delicious, but Diigo adds the highlighting & commenting features which take this tool to a greater level of usefulness. My Diigo bookmarks and sticky notes on web pages are not tied to any one computer, they are tied to my Diigo account, so that I can log in and see them from any computer anywhere.
Highlighting a piece of text on a web page will automatically bookmark that page for me. I can insert comments on the highlighting and leave private or public sticky notes on the page.
I can also do all of this in groups which makes it a powerful collaborative tool. Groups also include message boards and automated email summaries of activity."

How To Use del.icio.us http://websearch.about.com/ How To Use del.icio.us
del.icio.us is a social bookmarking tool.
What this boils down to for me is I get to see what sites are getting good word of mouth on the Web, what's most popular, what's interesting, or what's just fun. I check my del.icio.us bookmarks every day, and I constantly am bookmarking new sites as I come across them with the handy toolbar bookmarklet tool.
