Hallmarks: Social Bookmarking, à la Christians

Social bookmarking refers to a system whereby bookmarks (or favorites) are stored online rather than within a browser. This allows them to be accessed anywhere, but it also allows them to be shared. Coupled with tagging, it allows users of a social bookmarking site to see “what’s hot” by seeing which tags are used the most in categorizing bookmarks.

Hallmarks is my coin tossed into the well of social bookmarking, and today I celebrate the first bookmark posted by someone other than myself.

Once registered with Hallmarks, you can upload your bookmarks from Internet Explorer, Firefox, or other browsers, set bookmarks to public or private, and more. There’s a bookmarklet that can be added to your browser toolbar to allow for easily saving pages, and there’s even a Firefox extension which you can set to use Hallmarks as the website of choice. I use it myself, and it’s seemingly flawless. The extension adds two toolbar buttons: one visits the installation’s home and the other is a one-click “add to installation” button, and you can choose whether Hallmarks is your installation or not.

Confused? Probably. I’ll try to add more “Help” to the Hallmarks page as I have time. I realize there isn’t much there now.
