Social bookmarking

Q. What is a bookmark?
A. When reading a book, you put a bookmark between the pages to mark your place. When surfing the Web, you can also bookmark a page so you can quickly find it later. Using the Favorites or Bookmarks function in your Internet browser, you can save a link to the page in your Internet browser. There is also a way to save bookmarks online: social bookmarking sites.

Q. What is a social bookmarking site?
A. A social bookmarking site is a public website where users can store links to their favourite Web pages (pages, videos, RSS feeds, etc.) and add tags or descriptive keywords to make them easy to find. These bookmarks can be organized, searched and viewed by other users.

The biggest advantage of social bookmarking is that you can access your favourites from any computer, unlike browser bookmarks which are saved only on your personal computer.

On the Desjardins website, you can share Web pages using some of the most popular social bookmarking sites: Del.icio.us, Digg, Facebook, Google, Reddit and StumbleUpon. Registration to use any of these sites is free.

Q. How does social bookmarking work?
A.

1. Register with a social bookmarking site

To start bookmarking Desjardins Web pages, you will first need to sign up for a free account with a social bookmarking site.

2. Start bookmarking

Click on Share at the bottom of the Desjardins page you would like to bookmark. Then click on the icon of the social bookmarking site where you have an account. The social bookmarking site will appear, prompting you to save the Desjardins page to your online bookmarks.

When saving a Web page to a social bookmarking site, you can add tags or keywords to describe the page's content. These tags will help you find this page among your bookmarks and the tags will also identify the page so others can discover it.
