Social Media Research: Social Bookmarking

A guide to conducting scholarly research on social media.

Social Media

Social media encompasses a broad variety of websites, including social networking sites, blogs, wikis, photo sharing, social reading, and more.

Most of the sites on this page fall into more than one category, so it is important to keep that in mind when conducting research on social media.

Social Bookmarking

  • Delicious "is a free service designed to be the best place to save what you love on the web, whether it's a video, picture, product, blog post, article or music. We then help you remember and find it later" (https://delicious.com/about).
  • StumbleUpon can "help you easily discover new and interesting stuff on the Web. Tell us what you like, and we'll introduce you to amazing web pages, videos, photos and more that you wouldn't have found on your own" (http://www.stumbleupon.com/about).
