What are Digg, Del.icio.us, and Technorati all about?

Just so you know: this page was imported from my old blog. Some pages were rather mangled in the process; my apologies if things don't quite look right.

Digg, Del.icio.us and Technorati are websites where you can quickly and easily bookmark (save a link to) web pages you like, usually just by clicking a link on the webpage you want to "save", or by clicking a button in your browser toolbar.

Most of these types of websites will let you keep your links list private, and all you need to sign up to most is a working e-mail address.

Because your links are kept online, you can access them from anywhere on the internet. This could be really useful, for example, if you're researching coursework on the library computers and end up with a list of web links you want to review at home, since you just save your links online and access them again at home.

If you'd like to find out more, try the following weblinks:

There are lots of other websites that let you do similar things with your bookmarks: see bookmarkz.net for a complete listing.
