    Social Bookmarking is a site that allows users to locate, transmit, disseminate and give vote on an article from the Internet. The most popular social bookmarking sites are Digg, StumbleUpon and Del.icio.us.

    If you place your links social bookmarking sites like Digg, Reddit, SU or Propeller, they will spread to a lot many websites without much effort on your part. It also get indexed your site faster.

    Social Bookmarking is tagging a website. Instead of saving them to your web browser, you are saving them to the web. Most social bookmarking sites allow you to browse through the items based on most popular, recently added, or belonging to a certain category.

    Its a kind of telling people about the what new things you are up to what you currently read, what you currently introduced to the market like your software, It is also a best way to get others view on any topic . if done correctly it can attract traffic that you can't even imagine . just making followers will not help until and unless they are relevant ans most active on the community

    In social bookmarking you can bookmark sites or links to the web instead of the browser. You can make friends, join groups and share your links with everyone. You get a chance to tag and submit your story about the link. You can see others bookmarks and find many interesting articles.
