I visit the internet to find information I need everyday! I am constantly marking things as favorites and bookmarking them. At times my favorites and bookmarks get a bit overwhelming and are just a big jumbled mess.
If you know me, you know that I am a productivity app or web tool fanatic. Last week I learned about a free curation tool that I quickly feel in love with called Diigo. I have used other things in the past such as Delicious and Symbaloo, but I just love the way Diigo works seamlessly with Google Chrome and Twitter to keep all my favorite and important links organized and easily accessible.
Diigo is a social bookmarking website which allows you to bookmark, tag web-pages and save your favorite Tweets. When used on an iPad or on your Chrome browser, Diigo allows you to highlight any part of a webpage and attach sticky notes to specific highlights. It also includes a share feature that lets you share on G+, Facebook, Twitter or e-mail without having to click out of the application.
I think what I like best about it, is that I can organize my saved web links and information by creating lists and tags. In a later post, I will show you how to export list you create in Diigo onto your blog as an RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed called a link roll. (To see what an example of mine click here.)
Diigo lets you access all the information you have saved to it from any device with internet access. If you are looking for a web-based curation tool, I highly recommend checking out Diigo.
Here is a video I found that explains how Diigo works.
Diigo also has social networking capability. Follow and be followed by others who share similar interest. It is yet another way to expand your personal learning network.
I just started using Diigo and already feel so much more organized and productive. Go check it out https://www.diigo.com/.
