Introduction

Social bookmarking is a way of storing links to Internet resources and sharing them with others. Most systems use tags as a method of giving bookmarks keywords and categorising them to be searched for in the future. Bookmarks can be shared publicly to allow others to have access to the set of chosen sites, or kept private. Some systems also allow bookmarks to be rated by other users, who can post comments on them. Bookmarks can be accessed from anywhere, as they are stored online rather than in the browser. Compared to some other Web 2.0 Services, Social Bookmarking is generally very accessible.
