The Best Tool to Collect, Organize & Publish Your Favorite Links - The Google Bookmark Manager

The Best Tool to Collect, Organize & Publish Your Favorite Links - The Google Bookmark Manager | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



The new Google Bookmark Manager got me impressed. You may call it the Pinterest for Bookmarks or the new Pearltrees

for browser favorites, but notwithstanding your preference this is a true valuable curation tool to take note of.


The new release from Google is not just a great visual bookmarking tool for anyone using the Chrome browser, but it doubles up also as a great content curation publishing tool and under a hood of simplicity it packs lots of great, immediately useful features.

The browser integrated bookmarking manager makes it in fact possible to create visual link collections by adding URLs or by using the associated browser extension while on any site. These can be easily searched, nested, sorted and organized according to your preferences.

Each new bookmark allows you to pick an associated image, is editable in its title, description and URL and can be easily dragged, moved or copied over to different collections.

Bookmark collections from other browsers can be easily imported and a feature auto-generates a set of link collections based on common subjects. In addition, if you are logged into Chrome, your collections are synced across all of your computers. 

To curate and publish link collections, you only need to create a folder inside the Bookmark Manager and when it is ready for prime time, click the Share button to make it a fully public page.


N.B.: The new Bookmark Manager is not yet integrated with the Google Bookmarks service - https://www.google.com/bookmarks/ - keeping, for now, your browser bookmarks and the ones stored in the Google cloud two separate entities.


Excellent. A must have tool.

Curate All Your Open Browser Tabs with the Collectably Chrome Extension

Robin Good's insight:



Collectably is a content curation web app which allows you to bookmark any web site and to organize it into visual collections. A unique Chrome extension makes Collectably particularly useful as it pioneers the ability to save all of your open tabs into a visual collection that you can immediately prune, organize visually and sub-divide into specific groups. 


This feature by itself is worth gold for any serious researcher or content curator as it allows to easily move from seeing just trees into seeing the whole forest and into organizing into logical groups for further work. Priceless.


If you frequently search and explore new information and tools online, I highly recommend it. It's that good.


Free to use.


Try it out now: http://collectably.com/ 


Chrome extension and Bookmarklet: http://collectably.com/#/tools 


N.B.: You have by default a similar functionality available inside Firefox. It is called Group Tabs and you can activate it by goign to the View menu -> Toolbars -> Customize and by dragging the mosaic looking Tab Group icon into your browser top bar. 


Try it. It's excellent. The only difference with Collectably is that Group Tabs are private to you and not shareable on the web.

If you use Chrome, you can collect several open tabs at once with this extension -- great way to save your place if you have to quite while in the middle of researching something, but also a good way to package disparate sources of information together.
