As news of Yahoo’s Delicious bookmarking site coming to an end hits bookmarking enthusiasts worldwide we question whether some are ready for a change. What is the Future of Bookmarking?
Delicious users, we feel your pain and offer a solution that is quite contrary to the status quo. Imagine seeing all your bookmarks visually, being able to search for collections of bookmarks around one topic and being able to share them to Twitter and Facebook with the click of a button. That is in fact possible now on Symbaloo and we are currently developing a solution to import your bookmarks from Delicious that will be available soon.
Why Symbaloo? Symbaloo is a visual way to save and organize your online bookmarks. We are free of charge and free of advertising. Colors, icons, images and text can all be used simultaneously to identify your bookmarks. Videos, slideshows and photo albums can easily be embedded for quick access without having to leave Symbaloo. Your bookmarks go with you where ever you go. They can be accessed from any computer or device such as the ipad, whiteboards or tablets.
Many services are embeddable on Symbaloo such as Youtube, GoogleDocs, Flickr and more with many more on the way. See all embeddable services on Symbaloo.
Tired of Tagging? Our pre-populated and user generated database contains thousands of pre-tagged tiles. Simply search within our tile search box for your favorite sites. For those who still have the itch for tagging, the option is still there but by tagging groups of links into what we call a webmix, you are now making it easier for everyone to find collections of valuable resources all centered around one topic.
Social sharing is easy on Symbaloo. Users have the option to share their webmixes publicly by publishing to our Symbaloo Gallery, which indexes to Google, or they can share privately through email, Twitter and Facebook.
Quick saving is a must. To make bookmarking your favorite sites even easier we have a Symbaloo Bookmarker add-on available for Firefox and Chrome. If you are browsing websites and would like to bookmark it to your Symbaloo you simply click on the Symbaloo Bookmarker that you have installed to your browser toolbar and it will add the bookmark to Symbaloo without leaving the site that you are on.
Have the news come to you! Another added feature is the ability to bookmark RSS feeds. Save your favorite news sources, blogs and Twitter updates all simultaneously on one visual interface.
Finally, we would like to mention again that Symbaloo is free of charge and free of advertising.
We welcome your feedback on what features you would like to have when importing from Delicious and encourage you to share in the comments below.
