Discuss how college students (especially those working in groups) could benefit from social bookmarks. Be sure to include a link to your Delicious bookmarks in your blog post
For week 11’s topic of the week, I set up an account on Delicious. Delicious is a social bookmarking site. My delicious account is: http://delicious.com/aschlum1. When I set up my account, I added twenty bookmarks to my favorite, most visited sites on the Internet. Some of my sites included: WordPress, Facebook, YouTube, some of my classmate’s blogs, and many others.
College students can benefit greatly from using sites such as Delicious for social bookmarking. It is a website that helps with organization and planning. Whether students just wanted to keep track of sites they like or if they are using these sites for a project, it is an effective way of keeping track of the places you like to visit on the Internet. Students can benefit from social bookmarks when working in groups because when you set up an account and add bookmarks on Delicious, the bookmarks are available for everyone to see. If one group member has a list of sites on their account and another has a list of different sites on their account, that is double the amount of information for the group to look at and research with.
Delicious and other social bookmarking sites are becoming more popular as people start to use them more and more. Whether you are a college student or a professional, these sites can be beneficial in helping to plan or organize various types of information.
