6 reasons to use Pearltrees Pearltrees is the first and largest social curation community on the Internet. It’s a place to organize, discover and share all the cool content you find online. However, beyond this basic definition, a question remains: why would I want to use Pearltrees? Well, what I want to share with you are six major use cases (or reasons) we’ve identified as being most popular across our entire community of web curators. In addition, I’ll also share with you a couple of interesting ways in which I have put Pearltrees to use for myself.
Pearltrees - Visually Organize and Share Collections of Files and Links Pearltrees is a visual bookmarking tool that I first tried nearly five years ago. Over the years it has changed in response to feedback from its users. One of those changes was a transition from free-form webs of related files and links to its current format of visual squares and folders. Pearltrees rolls out V1.0 with its Premium Membership Just a few months after we sat down with Pearltrees CEO Patrice LaMothe for an interview about their topping of the US iPhone AppStore, Pearltrees have today announced that their social library has launched it’s v1.0, and is rolling out the long-awaited business model. Pearltrees’ launch is decorated with a few interesting figures: 700,000 collaborators creating 30 million pearls, which attracted 2 million UVs this past month. Currently, any pearl that is created is available for public eyes: your list of tech blogs, photos of your trip to Spain, etc.
Social Networking, Pearltrees & Curation can increase Hubpages Traffic How do the Numbers Add up Statistically here, using Pearltrees I've increased my traffic levels here, using Pearltrees significantly, in the short 5 months I've been a writer for hubpages. This form of social sharing is definitely going to change how you view the web, entirely, and this sharing actually will make hubpages much more popular, once more people catch on to the sharing on Pearltrees as well. I shared my hubs 100+ times on Pearltrees the first week, & I track the stats on both Google Analytics for Hubpages traffic, as well as on Hubpages for pearl stats. Sharing Amongst the social community of Pearltrees Pearltrees is amazing when it comes to sharing hubs, web locations, or any other content that has a URL (web address).
Why Social Beats Search That's a controversial post headline and I don't mean that social will always beat search, but there's a rising chorus out there about "content farms" and search optimized content creation that is worth touching on. Arrington started it when he posted about "the end of hand crafted content". Richard MacManus penned a similar post the same day called "Content Farms: Why Media, Blogs, and Google should be worried". Pearltrees On The Internet map The map of the Internet Like any other map, The Internet map is a scheme displaying objects’ relative position; but unlike real maps (e.g. the map of the Earth) or virtual maps (e.g. the map of Mordor), the objects shown on it are not aligned on a surface. Mathematically speaking, The Internet map is a bi-dimensional presentation of links between websites on the Internet. Every site is a circle on the map, and its size is determined by website traffic, the larger the amount of traffic, the bigger the circle. Users’ switching between websites forms links, and the stronger the link, the closer the websites tend to arrange themselves to each other.

Pearltrees - Visually Organize and Share Collections of Files and Links Pearltrees is a visual bookmarking tool that I first tried nearly five years ago.
