Evaluating Web Content
Social bookmarks are links saved on Web sites that allow users to annotate, tag, and share them with other users.
- The purpose of the bookmarking site. For example, CiteULike focuses on scholarly papers while Delicious is more broadly based.
- Bookmarks of interest to you have also been bookmarked by others.
- The quality of the bookmarked item. Determining this will be the same as determining the quality of any Web resource.
- The individual who bookmarked the site has expertise on the topic. This often cannot be determined, as users tend to employ nicknames as their identities.
