Social bookmarking links
Social bookmarking and sharing websites (such as Delicious, Digg and Stumbleupon) allow you to store links to your favourite articles and web pages in one central place on the internet, and share them with friends or people with similar interests.
Why use social bookmarks?
You can access your bookmarks from any computer with access to the Internet.
You can also share bookmarked links directly with people you know, and tag them with keywords, so that the pages you find interesting can be found by people who share similar interests.
It's also an easy way to help spread the word about Macmillan and recommend what you found useful on our site.
How can I use social bookmarks?
If you come across an interesting or useful page on the Macmillan website that you want to save for future reference or share with other people, simply click on one of these links to add to your list.
All of these sites are free to use but do require you to register. Once you have registered you can begin bookmarking.
How will this work in our online community?
We know our online communities are valued as a safe place for people affected by cancer to post as they wish. These links will NOT allow your threads to be published anywhere else on the internet or copied and pasted into other sites. Social bookmarking sites simply make it easier for you to add links to your threads, share them with friends, or find them again easily. For example, if someone has found a forum post really helpful and think they might want to read it again, adding it to their social bookmarking account means they'll be able to find it easily. And, it means it can be shared with others who might also benefit from it.
If you have any questions on social bookmarking you can email us at: Webmanager@macmillan.org.uk.
