Hello there

Shared Bookmarking:

Social bookmarking is a method for Internet users to store, organize, search, and manage bookmarks of web pages on the Internet with the help of metadata.

Furl (from File Uniform Resource Locators) is a free social bookmarking website (furl.net) that allows members to store searchable copies of webpages and share them with others. Every member receives 5 gigabytes of storage space.

Del.icio.us (pronounced as "delicious") is a social bookmarking web service for storing, sharing, and discovering web bookmarks. The site was founded by Joshua Schachter in late 2003, and was acquired by Yahoo! in 2005. Now it has more than 3 million users and 100 million bookmarked URLs.[1]

1. Both tools are shared book marking servers that allows the user to bookmark his favorite websites and to store these on outside memory banks.

2. Del.icio.us is used by downloading a new button on the tool bar that will automatically bookmark favorite website when pressed.
Furl enables members to bookmark, annotate, and share web pages.

3. We are able to bookmark educational websites for student uses during project, homework, etc.

4. An example of shared bookmarking is Valley Catholic's Own del.icio.us: http://del.icio.us/vcs.student

5. We recommened del.icio.is it's the simplest and quickest to use but other website that's offer the same type of bookmark sharing are http://www.furl.net/ and http://www.simpy.com/.

6. Shared bookmarking is very simple to use and very simple to learn how to use. The online insructions explain how to use the tools very well. For most programs you install a new button on your browser bar and press them to put a website on your bookmark list.
