Social bookmarking explained

Everyone bookmarks things they like on the Web. However, finding new quality content can be overwhelming and we know that we are missing good stuff.

By sharing what you see, you are contributing to that community, and you have an opportunity to learn through the community by seeing what others found to be important. Be patient, your learning community will improve as you find individuals that are providing relevant and worthwhile content.
