Pearltrees Launches Embeds - Makes Bookmarks More Useful. Online bookmarking tools haven't really changed much over the last few years.
Most services still present you with a basic list of tagged links. Pearltrees, however, is taking a radically different approach. The Paris-based company organizes links as a collection of "pearls" that are connected by a mind map-like tree graph. Starting today, you can also embed these collections in your own blog posts. Pearltrees Embeds The company, which launched a new beta version of its service last month, notes that these new embeds will give bloggers and journalists the ability to present their readers with a new way to explore a topic in depth. A tool like this can come in handy when you want to show the research that went into a longer article, for example, or whenever you want to give your readers more background and context than you could pack into a simple list of links in a blog post.

As the amount of content in various places seems to increase with each passing day, the need for smart curation online only becomes inevitable.
Pearltrees made public a new attribute called Super Embed at the annual west coast Web 2.0 Expo that claims to do just that. The company will also roll out its new Beta 0.7 release soon. This new launch offers bloggers, journalists and Internet users the ability to organize a series of web pages about a particular topic. They can then create one ‘tree’ that features all that content. Following this, Pearltree can be embedded by users in their blog or website. In addition to this, the latest release also packs in some other major improvements. Discovering, organizing and sharing content that may be found on the web is said to be transformed with this latest version. Users simply need to copy an HTML code from Pearltrees and paste it into their site or blog.
