Making The Most of Social Tagging
Social tagging and bookmarking websites are a newer trend in internet sharing and marketing trends. Social tagging allows you to share with your friends the websites and articles that you find interesting, amusing, compelling, ect. Sites that you have bookmarked are available for you and your friends to browse and share with their followers.
With the growing popularity of users on social tagging sites, and companies reaping benefits of peer to peer marketing with there sites, many sites and posts offer buttons for one click ability to bookmark this page. With these one click features, you can easily share or bookmark all sorts of content on social tagging or networking sites.
Another benefit of social tagging sites is that they can act as online bookmark managers. When you bookmark pages on these sites you have access to those lists wherever you are. Using sites as on cloud based bookmark lists is easier to use than browser based bookmark lists. When you bookmark things on your browser only, that list is only stored on that program on that computer or device. Using social tagging or cloud based bookmark software, you can take and update your bookmark list anywhere.
If you are interested in using a social tagging site, the process is fairly simple. First, you must choose a site and sign up for their service. Some sites may require or recommend you install browser tools or control bar buttons to allow for streamlined tagging or bookmarking. From there you start tagging and bookmarking sites you are interested in returning to. The last step of using social tagging, is inviting friends. Bookmarking sites are meant to be social, so the more friends and users you connect with through the sites, the greater you will be able to expand your bookmarking and web browsing horizons.
