At the time, I was supporting library projects with web sites containing links to resources. Because it is much easier to add a site to Delicious than to update a web page, I transferred these links to Delicious and created tag bundles. Now, when students click on Raider Links on our (internal) home page they go to my Delicious bookmarks. The major disadvantage of using Delicious in this way is the difficulty of keeping separate personal and work identities when doing school work on my home computer. Thus, I’ve given up and only have one identity on Delicious – nvteklib.
Besides linking the browser home page to my bookmarks, I have my delicious account configured to post my new bookmarks on this blog.
After having set up Delicious, I discovered Diigo. Diigo is similar to Delicious but it allows you to highlight text on the web site. Even though I believe that Diigo has an educational advantage over Delicious, I have not wanted to spend the time transferring my bookmarks and re-organizing them. Thus, I’m still a Delicious user.
Thanks to a recent webinar on new gadgets, I heard about the capability of Diigo to connect with Delicious and Twitter.
Now, I’m switching to Diigo to take advantage of its ability to highlight and to post automatically to Twitter.
