Social bookmarking is the process of bookmarking a website page to a social media platform (browser-based tool) to easily visit the page again later. Social bookmarking websites, in general, are the sites where users share their web pages, articles, blog posts, images, and videos. With social bookmarking users can save the discussion topics organized into specific threads and receive notifications on their personal feed when new information appears.

Social bookmarking links

Links in social bookmarking sites are the key points of conversation and knowledge-sharing making them a preferable location on the internet for finding social media inspiration and networking with potential influencers. Using different platforms’ features to bookmark posts is a better approach to saving social media posts to your browser bookmarks. Since the bookmarks are online, you’ll be able to access them anywhere, anytime, and from any device with an internet connection.
