Social Bookmarking
Condemned to the 1st Circle of Hell

Definition:

DIGG, Del.icio.us, Reddit, Newsvine. What do they have in common? They’re all community sites. And they’re all bookmarking sites. What do you get when you combine “social” and “bookmarking?”

In a social bookmarking system, users store lists of Internet resources, which they find useful. These lists are either accessible to the public or a specific network, and other people with similar interests can view the links by category, tags, or even randomly. Some allow for privacy on a per-bookmark basis.

    IMHO, there are too many social bookmarking sites out there! I’d rather stick with DIGG and del.icio.us. That’s where my friends are, anyway.

    Burn it! All these clever dicks are manipulating the system by bookmarking their own crap!
