Would you like to keep your favorites online and also have access to other people’s favorites? del.icio.us is a collection of favorites — yours and everyone else’s. Use del.icio.us to:

  • Keep links to your favorite articles, blogs, music, restaurant reviews, and more on del.icio.us and access them from any computer on the web.
  • Share favorites with friends, family, and colleagues.
  • Discover new things. Everything on del.icio.us is someone’s favorite - they’ve already done the work of finding it.

Tag your bookmarks. Tags are one-word descriptors that you can assign to any bookmark. Tags can’t contain quotation marks or white-space, but are otherwise unrestricted. You can assign as many tags to a bookmark as you like, and rename, delete, add or merge tags together. If you want to post an article about reading and literature circles, just tag it with "reading" and "literature circles" or whatever other tags you’d want to use to find it again. Bundle your tags. Bundles are a way to group together common tags. For instance, if you have the tags "stories", "literature circles", and "vocabulary", you may want to group these together into a bundle called "reading". Set up your network. Your network connects you to other del.icio.us users — friends, family, even new people you run across while exploring del.icio.us. You can add people to your network and keep track of their latest bookmarks right here. And when you save new bookmarks, you can share them with people in your network simply by clicking on a username. "Your fans" is your reverse network — a list of people who have added you to their network. Set up del.icio.us buttons. Buttons (bookmarklets) are links you add to your browser’s Bookmarks Toolbar. They are an easy way to post and view your bookmarks in del.icio.us. You can set up the my del.icio.us bookmark by dragging the java script information to your bookmarks folder that you have available when you sign up. There is also a way to make MP3 files play on any page by dragging del.icio.us related files to your bookmarks.
