Learn About Social Media from Your Desk
The best part about using Delicious is that you are sharing your bookmarks with others – and they are sharing theirs with you.
Let’s say you are looking for information on scubadiving. You could spend an entire day doing Google searches and mostly find web sites that are selling gear. Or, you could go to Delicious, and search for the “scubadiving” tag. Or maybe you’d be more specific and search for “scubadiving tips.” Your search will display a list of the web sites other people found helpful on your topic. And you can see which ones have been bookmarked the most.
There’s more. But before we go on, you need to do some homework. Your next assignment is to bookmark a few web pages on any topic you like.
The first topic I focused on was web sites that have free or cheap photos and clip art. Then I gave the link to my co-workers so they would stop “borrowing” my CDs. Worked like a charm.
