I noticed that we have 4 colorful characters below . What exactly does "furl this post" mean?
These icons automate the addition of post links to the social bookmarking sites Digg.com, del.icio.us, Technorati.com and Furl.com .
A social bookmarking site allows users to bookmark many sites and then tag them with many descriptive words, allowing other people to search by those terms to find pages that other people found useful.
Yeah, that cleared it all up for me. It's times like these when I realize how computer illiterate I really am. When I read your reply, Cheryl, it was like reading a foreign language for me. Thanks anyway.
Whenever I have to talk to a tech. over any problem, I always preface the conversation with, "Pretend you are talking to a kindergartner...."
It's hard straddling the fence between lo-tech & hi-tech. How lucky the kids of today are to be brought up with these marvelous machines.
Left behind, but still plugging away.......moreluck
Made no sense to me either, More.....
i`m just glad More ask the questions before me, I`m as good as her in the techno world, in my world it`s easier going: "quoi, what is furl? "
You know how you bookmark websites you want to visit again? Most browsers store these bookmarks in a favorites folder.
Social bookmarking websites are services that make lists of bookmarks that individuals have added to a personal online favorites lists available for other people to search from one big database.
It's just another way to sort internet information...
It's really not very complicated, my previously posted explanation really wasn't very clear. They are big searchable databases of links that have been recommended by other users.
Separate names with a comma.
