I know that am probably far behind the curve when it comes to del.icio.us, but I just did not think I needed another way to share bookmarks. After using the site to access the del.icio.us bookmarks of friends and peers, I have finally broken down! If you have been curious about this tool, then this is the place for you.
Delicious is, at its core, a bookmarking tool. You know how you find a great site and click favorites so that you can come back to it later when you log on to your desk top. Delicious takes that same user computer-based ability and takes it online. Utilizing a system similar to cloud storage, Delicious keeps track of all of your sites. This was, you can access them from any place that has web access. This means that your phone, iPad, laptop, and computer are all gateways to any knowledge or site information that you have saved.
That feature alone makes Delicious worth looking into. That, fortunately, is not where the site’s usefulness ends. You are able to tag the sites to organize them effectively for your personal use. You also have the ability to connect and share bookmarks with others. You even have the ability to subscribe to the RSS feeds of others.
I started working on a video tutorial of this tool. As aI began to research it seemed that this was just reinventing the wheel. There are some great ones already out there. Here are a few to walk you through how to set up a del.icio.us account. Let’s go!
