Delicious – Creative uses and advanced applications for a social bookmarking website

The Website “Delicious” allows users to post, update, and collaborate bookmarks for various websites. The basic uses for this are obvious; Keeping track of websites found in the past, and keeping them in order, and also viewing other friends and similar minded peoples bookmarks. The site however has potential to be used in more advanced, creative ways. Some of these include:

– Marketing – data collection and information on a product

– Wish lists – Save certain products or items you have found which you might want to save up for or think about for the future

– RSS feeds from a favoured user

– Develop ideas – eg. Going on a trip and collaborating all location and attraction ideas and websites found into an exclusive tag

– Easy and cheap way to find solutions to problems already faced by other people
