Diigo (social bookmarking 2.0 style) – my new best friend

112471862_6fa9fc092a_m.jpg

I hope you’re having a nice and relaxing Easter! This week leading up to the holiday break I’ve been working from home and Simon commutes to the office in town.  For those of you who don’t know, Simon & I are married and we work together too.  And miraculously we’re still married 10 years next month 🙂  

Skype has been fantastic for us this week, it’s enabled us to connect throughout the day so we can ask each other questions and clarify things that come up as the day unfolds

So far, this working arrangement is refreshing for both of us.  We didn’t realise that we distract to each other a lot…. and (shock horror) I didn’t realise I talked so much too.  

Anyway, back to the subject.

Diigo (pronounced Dee’go) is a great social bookmarking site if you like to bookmark, highlight, put sticky notes (comments) on certain information you’re interested in when searching the web.

Diigo is great for research. If you collect a lot of information like me, this is a great place to store everything. I know when I start to research a topic offline it usually means a tonne of books on the desk, bits and pieces of loose paper everywhere, writing pads, folders, paper, pens, highlighters. I think you get the image. 

Diigo does all of the above and so much more online.

And if that isn’t enough you can even blog from there too.  The tutorials are very clear and easy to understand.  I know I seriously sound like an infomercial right now but I think I’ve found a site I didn’t know I was looking for it. 

Over the Easter break I’m locking myself away with a mission to learn how to drive it!

    I love Diigo and have been a Beta tester for the past year. Their new v 3.0 is fantastic with lots of extra community functionality. It’s the best research tool I have found in a long time. Bug thumbs up to Maggie & the Diigo crew.
