Bookmarking

Bookmarking : saving your favorite sites online so you can access them from any computer.

You can make your saved favorites private or public, and usually can create an RSS feed from these favorites. You can usually download them for offline storage or backup also. You usually tag your favorites and can use a tag cloud as a way of navigating them. The disadvantage of the tagging system is that there is no controlled vocabulary, such as subject headings, so they can become very untidy.
