Since the introduction of the web browser, folks have used bookmarks or favorites to help catalog and remember places on the web. Social Bookmaking allows one to utilize a web-based tool to save and catalog sites using keywords or tags. Another feature is the ability to share your bookmarks with others. For example a teacher might use a social bookmarking tool such as del.icio.us to catalog curriculum related sites for use in her classroom. The sites can easily be shared with others because of the web based nature of these sites. The folks at Common Craft have created a video that explains social bookmarking and demonstrates the utility of sharing your sites with others. It's called Social Bookmaking in Plain English.
