Gelato del.icio.us

I’m not sure what to think of social bookmarking. I uploaded my bookmark folders from my laptop at home to del.icio.us. It took about half an hour for del.icio.us to give everything a place. I’d used capital letters to name the folders in my browser so the tags that del.icio.us assigned were also in capitals. Does this mean I’ve created ‘flaming’ tags?

After I’d chucked out the non-work related stuff I had 51 links left. The first thing I noticed after this clean-up was the added information on how many other users had noted the same bookmarks. I took this in with a feeling of ‘so what’. It doesn’t surprise me that other people have the same bookmarks. There are a lot of people out there using the web. I’d had a similar reaction to the numbers of other readers of titles I’d read in Library Thing. I’m trying to work out if this has any relevance at all. The links in my list that were saved the most by other del.icio.us users were the browser related help pages. That’s logical isn’t it?.

When I had a closer look at my list I noticed that the links that no one on del.ious.us had saved except me were the ones not in English. Del.icio.us appears to have a bias for English language sites. This calls for some remedial action. If you love gelato, then make this link is one for your del.icio.us favorites:

I’m still testing out the possibilities of this web 2.0 tool for week 7 of SPOETNIK. I’ll write more later.
