My Diigo Experience

Filed under: Diigo — Tags: , , — debyj @ 2:06 pm

For the month of February I am going to explore something I have never explored before….Diigo!  I really do not know too much about it yet.  It is a social bookmarking site that might be similar to delicious (although I am not 100% sure yet).

So far this is what I have done:

1. visited the site and signed up for an account (that was easy!)

2. logged in (there was an option to sign in using facebook, twitter and some other social networks…I am not sure what that is about yet).

3. added the tool bar (diigo recommended it so I installed it! I am not sure that it worked…)

4. watched a video overview of diigo

From the video, I learned about the three main services Diigo provides:

1. research

2. highlight (and post-it)

3. bookmark & archive

My next step was to search for videos on YouTube and a found A LOT of videos on Diigo!  I think I will be returning back to YouTube for help understanding this website over the next month.

Here is my favorite introductory Diigo YouTube video I found:

I am now feeling a little overwhelmed by everything I just learned about Diigo!  My next step will be to add some of my own bookmarks and practice using the highlight and post-it features.  Once I get familiar with that, maybe I can explore the “social” aspect of this social bookmarking site!

  1. I was first introduced to social bookmarking in Alec’s ECMP 355 course last semester. However, I don’t remember hearing about Diigo, just Delicious. I have been using Delicious ever since and I’m curious to know the difference between the two and which one would be better to use. I love the concept of social bookmarking; I look forward to hearing more about your research!
