Week 5 Assignment: Social Bookmarking

This week’s assignment required us to augment the class’ social bookmarking site on delicious.com, an archive of social media information that student Brooke Fritz started as her extra credit project. (Find link to Comm 4701 social bookmarking site in right sidebar.)

Each student was required to add links he or she cited in class discussions to the social bookmarking site. In the second part of the assignment, we used the “explore tags” search from delicious’ homepage to locate other relevant sites and add them to the class archive. Through this search, we also noted the history of tagged sites listing delicious users who had individually saved a given site. In this, we learned about delicious’ networking capabilities.

Social bookmarking is much more than hitting the “save to favorites” button. It is a unique means of gathering content, sharing information and building connections–all vital social media functions.
