Social Bookmarking & Crowd-Sourcing: Survival Guide Ch. 7

For my Social Media for PR class’ week 10 reading assignment we were required to read Chapter 7 from “A Survival Guide to Social Media and Web 2.0 Optimization.” This chapter talks about Social Bookmarking and Crowd- Sourcing.

When using social bookmarking, the book suggests:

  • keeping in mind that the social web is about interacting, sharing and collaboration, not self promotion. It’s a great way to bookmark, tag, and comment on sites that interest you and a way for you to connect with people with similar interests.
  • there is nothing wrong with bookmarking your own web pages and blog posts, sa long as the site allows it, and balance it out with other sites.
  • is a perfect place to start your social bookmarking journey

When crowd sourcing, the book suggests you keep in mind:

  • Digg is an example of a crowd-sourced news site. It encourages people to “digg” the stories they like, which brings up the most “dugg” stories.
