Social Bookmarking! Can you digg it?
There have been a few changes here on our site in regards to how you're viewing the articles and are able to make your comments. For many, it seems like we are preaching to the choir. If you've ever thought that you wished "everyone knew"... here's your chance to help spread the word about interracial dating.
Help spread the word about multicultural dating...read on!
You know the true sign of a great dating web site is one that keeps you up to date with what is really going on in the world of romance and technology. What better way of getting and keeping everyone connected? With this in mind, if you haven't already heard about social book-marking, let me bring you up to date.

What are you looking for?
Some of you may have "bookmarked" your favorite website (like this one), and whenever you get on-line you can just point and click and you're there. Well, social book-marking is the ability to save "bookmarks" to website and tag them with keywords in order to find them later. Not only that, it also helps others find those same sites with greater ease and satisfaction.
In a sense, instead of letting a machine decide what is the most popular site based on techno-babble...like Meta tags and algorithms. Social book-marking sites are ranked by living and breathing humans. People like you and me that are looking for more people like us that may or may not share the same view point, but certainly have a lot of the same interest in a common topic.
According to an article published and "bookmarked" by Educause Learning Initiative, "Social book-marking creates a true web of resources and connections...that represents the interest and judgments of a community of users".
The cool thing about how social book-marking works, is that it allows you to see who creates the book-marks and it gives you access to their other book-markings. So, if you find someone that has similar interest as yours, you can share information without spending a lot of time cutting, pasting and emailing. You can also access your favorites from any computer not just your personal one.
It also seems to be another great way to meet people. How many times have you read an article and wanted to share it with friends or you just wished that more people could read it? Here's your chance to do that. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think. Here's a couple to get you started.
Digg.com and del.icio.us. They both have very different styles. I found digg.com personally, to be easier to navigate at a glance. They use the term "digging". So, let's just say you "dig" this article. You can go down to the bottom of the page and click on Digg.com, create a user account and add it to your personal bookmarks. Your page then goes to a list of other recently "dug" pages and allows others to read it too. If they like it, they can also "dig" it to their personal bookmarks, dig it? I knew you would.
This is Leticia saying...try something new today...you might like what you find.
