Making del.icio.us even tastier
I’ve used deli.icio.us for quite a while now. Saving links that are stored in the cloud that I can access from any browser works well for me. But it could be better – here’s how. I am part of a network on del.icio.us: a group who share links. What if I want to be part of two separate networks? In real life I can and do participate in discrete networks – for instance, work and groups of friends. And the interests of those groups may overlap, but they’re not the same – and, of course, there’s the small matter of confidentiality. So del.icio.us would be improved by adding the ability to belong to discrete networks.
Turns out a number of social networks take the same, rather naive approach to networks. Rather than mimic real life networks, they assume that each of us belongs to one big network. And that, for now, limits their usefulness and effectiveness.
