Social bookmarking is the process of using social sites such as digg, facebook and technorati to share, organize, search,  and store the bookmarks of different website pages. In addition, internet users, such as yourself, have a plethora of saving options; you can save your favorite website bookmarks by date, by category, by keyword, by search engine or even chronologically.

Let’s face it, the internet is becoming more like one big social network. Hence, the sudden wave of new and exciting new websites that allow you to do all of the above with the use of feed (or aggregators). Aggregators (also known as, rss feeds, news feeds, feeders, or feed readers) are software programs that will capture snippets of information from your favorite websites and store it in one location for you; keeping you up to date on the most up-to-date information in one click of a button. My favorite is Google’s.

To put it simply, we have options. If you like a website and wish to share it, sites like furl and sphinn will help you to get the word out to all your friend in just a few clicks.  This is social bookmarking stuff is powerful stuff ladies. Don’t underestimate it. Using these methods of social bookmarking properly can land your site on the first page of the search engines. Why not share what you think is interesting content? There may be other people who need the information that you’ve just read and you can help them by sharing it.

If you take a look at the bottom of this article, you’ll see little icons that represent a number of different social bookmarking sites. If you like this article and wish to share it with the world, just click on one of the little social bookmarking icons and spread the word. It’s really simple, yet very powerful in terms of letting others know what you think is good to great content.
