Save, Share and Recommend SustainabiliTank Articles

Our articles link to services that offer different ways to save, share and recommend articles on sustainabilitank.info.

Each of the services is free, but some form of user registration is required to use each of them.

Here’s a brief description of some of the services, information on how to use them and links you can follow to register and find out more about the sites:

del.icio.us


At its most basic level, del.icio.us allows users to save their bookmarks online.Del.icio.us also gives users the ability to “tag” their bookmarks with descriptive category names. For example, someone who has bookmarked multiple Web pages that deal with the Washington Nationals baseball team could tag those links with any terms they want, like “baseball,” “nationals,” “natsfan,” etc.As members of a “social bookmarking” community, del.icio.us sers can also see how many other people have bookmarked the same pages, and they can look at those users’ bookmark collections to find other interesting online content.To register, go to: del.icio.us/register

For more information about Del.icio.us, go to del.icio.us/about/

On Digg, users share interesting online content by submitting links to the site. At that point, the Digg audience can vote on whether or not they think it is interesting.
