There are many major social bookmarketing sites. And there are many “You never heard of them before” social bookmarketing sites. I am going to explore the good, bad and ugly.
I joined a site today called Browsmi. Now, I observed that most of the users do not post their pictures. So, unless you see their interests you hesitate to network with them. But the this site has great possibilites for baby boomers. Why? Because you bring your own crowd. You see this site lets you go and bookmark and site in “real time” and share with your friends.
It works like this:
It’s 12:00 at night and I am searching for some cool coins on ebay. I go to Browsmi and see that you are online. I then go to an Ebay listing and I click the thumbs up in green. You may go and click a thumbs up too. All the other baby boomers hanging out there can see what we have noted. PLUS we could go into chat mode and talk about it.
I included the information about the site from the publishers below. The site does not have a high page rank nor large numbers. Whereas, you can connect to your Facebook, I got a warning saying it might not be a good idea. So, I decided not to do it.
If you go and want to explore look for me “blogging betty boomer. Let me know you are there.
