One of the most popular forms of Web 2.0 is social bookmarking
. The essence is quite simple – one can share his favorite link, write a short review and others can vote for it influencing popularity and comment. The result is a high traffic to that link for some period of time, lots of comments creating the discussion. You have probably participate in such social bookmarking activity using Delicious, StumbleUpon, Digg
, Propeller, NewsVine, Reddit, Furl
and many others. If you have posted a link to your Facebook profile, you are also familiar with the social bookmarking.
At the second post of this blog I have raised the problem of information quality and trust
. Where do you look for the information you need? Search engines do not always give what you want. Social networks as well. In case of poker information (with lots of garbage in the field), one of the information sources can be poker targeted social bookmarking sites. Of course, you can look in the global ones, but you may get some results that are related to poker as a game (notice the movies – poker is mentioned in almost all of them) or lifestyle, but not always meaning resources and news.
