Tech Tuesday

Check out our new Tech Tuesday Page. This will be a separate page in our blog with a convenient tab at the top of the page for quick and easy access. We hope to add more Tech Presentations in the near future.

Below are some links to power point presentations that were done for our Tech Tuesday program this year. Most of these slide shows are without audio, but the Social Bookmarking is an exception, and does have audio. We hope to produce more of these types of presentations in the future. We hope you enjoy them and hopefully learn something in the process.

Social Book Marking

 

 

Educate yourself on three of the most popular social book marking sites on the web.

Social bookmarking is a way for Internet users to store, organize, share and search bookmarks of web pages. In a social bookmarking system, users save links to web pages that they want to remember and/or share. These bookmarks are usually public, but depending on the service’s features, may be saved privately, shared only with specific people or groups, shared only inside certain networks, or another combination of public and private. The allowed people can usually view these bookmarks chronologically, by category or tags, via a search engine, or even randomly.

Most social bookmark services encourage users to organize their bookmarks with informal tags instead of the traditional browser-based system of folders, although some services feature categories/folders or a combination of folders and tags. They also enable viewing bookmarks associated with a chosen tag, and include information about the number of users who have bookmarked them. Some social bookmarking services also draw inferences from the relationship of tags to create clusters of tags or bookmarks.

Many social bookmarking services provide web feeds for their lists of bookmarks, including lists organized by tags. This allows subscribers to become aware of new bookmarks as they are saved, shared, and tagged by other users.

As these services have matured and grown more popular, they have added extra features such as ratings and comments on bookmarks, the ability to import and export bookmarks from browsers, emailing of bookmarks, web annotation, and groups or other social network features.
