Diigo

The story of my life is that I find a cool website, look at it, go find something else, and forget about the site that I found first. I’ve even tried to save bookmarks on my personal computer, but it never fails that I wouldn’t be able to find it somewhere else or remember the site to tell someone else.

Then along came Diigo. Diigo is a bookmarking service that is located in the “cloud.” That way I never lose my bookmarks and I always have access to them. Also, Diigo is a “social” bookmarking service. This means that I can bookmark a page and someone can search for “tags” about other sites uploaded by other users. This immediately takes my limited amount of search time and multiplies the number of items that I can find.  I can follow and group with other Diigo users and also research with them.

Diigo is an extremely useful tool that has transformed my web searches and research. Now I am no longer one internet searcher “stumbling upon” random sites, hoping I find what I’m looking for. Now I am purposeful, effective, and efficient with my research time.

**And the Chrome Extension is pretty amazing too 🙂 ***

If you’d like to see my Diigo page, click on the tab in my main menu at the top of the page.

    Michael, you have shared so many useful and interesting websites through our group in Diigo, thank you so much!
    I find Diigo is so easy to use and share with others. Anytime when searching online, we can share the websites with the world through Diigo~
    Just let the information spread out through Diigo~

  2. I knew how you feel when you can’t find the site that you think is awesome. I agree with you that Diigo is amazing social bookmarking that makes research, teaching, and learning happen anywhere anytime. Sharing with others through Diigo bookmarking is a wonderful idea that I am so fascinating. I vote Diigo to be the best social bookmarking tool.

  3. I have enjoyed receiving your Diigo sites and I too have become a fan. Like you, I would see a fabulous website and try to remember what it was. Or I may save it in Favorites, on my office computer, only to be on a different computer when I needed it.
