Exporting Bookmarks Your bookmarks are exported to an html document in transition.
Importing Bookmarks Your bookmarks are imported from the html file into your account. Do this for each browsers set of bookmarks. (I had 900 URLs from 5 computers and 12 browsers.)
Private VS Public Bookmarks are imported as private, so only you can see them at first. You may choose to make them public if you like. Here is an example of a private view, and the same list as the public sees it.
Networks Private collaboration between colleagues or classrooms. Filters by collection owners – social groups with common interests. May expose ideas to a greater audience.
Instructional Ideas Create a network within your discipline Tag resources for classes with unique tags (course numbers, etc.) Use separate accounts for classes Tag case studies with unique tags Students can contribute to a class resource list via networks
Tagging Crowdsourcing of terminology Common or unique tags Search and sort by tags Folksonomy: Non-hierarchical ontology that is created as a natural result of user-added metadata or tagging. – Thomas Vander Wal Wordle.net Tag Cloud
