Share Bookmarks With a Group in Annotary

Last month I wrote about a new bookmarking service called Annotary. Annotary struck me as being a bit like Diigo meets Pinterest. I liked Annotary but it was missing something. That missing thing was the option to create bookmark sharing groups. This week Annotary added that option.

You can add existing Annotary members to your group or send out email invites to the people that you want to join and use Annotary with you. Annotary provides a signup link you can share that automatically signs visitors up for the group. You can create group collections or move your existing collections into a group. Everyone in the group automatically follows the group's collections and can contribute their own bookmarks and annotations.

Annotary - Another Nice Bookmarking Service

Annotary is a new social bookmarking service that I started trying out this morning and so far I like it. Annotary reminds me a bit of the popular Diigo bookmarking service. Using Annotary in Chrome I can bookmark sites, highlight portions of pages, and annotate pages with sticky notes. Just like any good online bookmarking service, Annotary allows you to share bookmarks and search other peoples shared bookmarks.


Applications for Education
If you're still saving your bookmarks to your browser only, make this school year the year that you start saving your bookmarks online. Annotary could be a great service to get you started on that path. By saving your bookmarks online you will always be able to access them regardless of which computer you use. And by adding annotations to the pages you save in your Annotary account you'll never wonder why you bookmarked a particular site.
