Microsoft To Release Social Bookmarks For MSDN & TechNet

John Martin, Lead Evangelist for Server & Tools Online (STO) at Microsoft, said that Microsoft is planning to release a preview version of Social Bookmarks for both MSDN and TechNet this week and showcase it at TechEd North America the following week.



While the preview will not have full functionality (it is also English-only), it will allow members of the community to...

  • Bookmark any URL on the web
  • Apply tags
  • Save bookmarks in the new My Bookmarks tool

All bookmarks, bookmarkers, and tags will also be enabled as links and can be “surfed” to discover new content and people.

Social bookmarks will also be integrated into the new Profile page and give every member of the community a great new way to increase their visibility, impact, and influence.

(See screenshots of the Social Bookmarks home page from a test build below; the bookmarks themselves are not real - created just for testing)

You can discuss more on this at Social Bookmarks forum.
