Section 3: Methods for collecting information

Social bookmarking (Diigo)

A bookmarking site is a place where you can collect your favorite Websites. A social bookmarking site provides the additional benefit of sharing with others. There are many different social bookmarking applications, this guide focuses on Diigo. Diigo is a social bookmarking site. Diigo "enables users to collect, highlight, access and share a variety of information, on a variety of devices."

With a social bookmarking tool, you can write notes about your bookmarks, share with others, tag them, search for tags, bookmarks, and common sites, and access them from any Web browser. More Information

Twitter

Twitter is a micro-blogging tool, which allows a participant to send and receive messages up to 140 characters long. Twitter is very mobile and can be access from computers, ipads, and smart phones.

It is possible to view Twitter posts without a Twitter account, however, to get the most benefit, I recommend having a Twitter account. More Information
