Delicious homepage in October 2012, an example of a social bookmarking website. A social bookmarking service is a centralized online service which enables users to add, annotate, edit, and share bookmarks of web documents. [ 1 ] Many online bookmark management services have launched since 1996; Delicious , founded in 2003, popularized the terms "social bookmarking" and " tagging ". Tagging is a significant feature of social bookmarking systems, enabling users to organize their bookmarks in flexible ways and develop shared vocabularies known as folksonomies .
Social bookmarking sites like Delicious are useful for collecting bookmarks, but they don't allow users to really draw connections and tell stories. That's where curation-focused services like Pearltrees and Trailmeme come in. Trailmeme , which we first looked at in December , was incubated at Xerox and launches at DEMO this week. It allows users to bookmark sites and then organize them in tidy diagrams, making it easy to highlight the relationship between different items and for readers to browse these links. While Pearltrees only allows users to display connections in a relatively simple tree structure, Trailmeme offers its users more flexibility.
Web archiving is the process of collecting portions of the World Wide Web to ensure the information is preserved in an archive for future researchers, historians, and the public. Web archivists typically employ web crawlers for automated capture due to the massive size and amount of information on the Web. The largest web archiving organization based on a bulk crawling approach is the Internet Archive which strives to maintain an archive of the entire Web.
