“Social bookmarking provides a powerful platform for sharing information and resources”

Getting Started
1) Get registered • Visit http://delicious.com • Follow the >>get started<< link to sign-up and create an account • Download the browser buttons (Or, if you get a security error trying that, look in the
help section for ‘bookmarklet buttons for any browser’ and follow the instructions to manually install these.)

Five reasons to use social bookmarking: 1. Organize your collection of web-links 2. Share useful web-links within your team 3. Publish organized lists of resources for outside partners and clients 4. Keep up with the latest news, online resources and information in your sector 5. Discover websites, online resources, organisations and individuals in your area of interest

2) Add your first bookmark • Next time you come across a website you want to remember, click the or button. • Enter a description of the website you are now bookmarking • Enter key words as ‘tags’ 3) Retrieve your bookmarks • Go to http://delicious.com and select ‘your bookmarks’ • Explore the ‘tags’ links on the right to filter and display different groups of your bookmarks.

Things to try 1. Keep track of new bookmarks on a particular topic by anyone (on the whole of del.icio.us) by tracking a particular tag. Visit: http://delicious.com/tag/your_tag_here For example, http://delicious.com/tag/youthwork Look for the icon at the very bottom of the page, and subscribe to this RSS feed. Every time a new bookmark is added with this tag, you will see it in your RSS reader. 2. Share information with your colleagues by agreeing on a unique ‘tag’ you will use on information you want others in your team to see. (For example I might use ‘pracpartnews’ to share news from Practical Participation). Then each subscribe to the RSS feed for this tag (see #1) so that you will each see whenever a member of the team tags a new bookmark with this unique tag.
