Diigo - Social Bookmarking Software

Diigo is a social bookmarking tool - something that should be considered part of Web 2.0 - the "read-write" web. Diigo is free and very powerful. You can bookmark web sources, add comments (like PostIt notes), add tags to your bookmarked sites, and share your bookmarks with others.

The Diigo website states "Diigo enables effective collaborative research. You can easily share your findings, complete with your highlights and sticky notes, with friends and colleagues. A project team, a class, or a club can create a group on Diigo to pool relevant resources, findings and thoughts together."
