This simultaneous cross-posting feature serves dual purposes:
- It allows you to easily keep up with your de.licio.us network while taking advantage of all the powerful features diigo has to offer.
- It acts as a great online “backup” system.

Update (March 21, 2009)
- Transfer status: Due to the huge amount of transfer requests, transfer will take a while (a few more days) to complete. For those who have initiated the transfer and if you haven’t received an email from us (or have only seen partial transfer so far), don’t worry. Your request is still a work in progress and will be completed soon. Please see the latest transfer update in our user forums.
- Data access: While your furl links transfer may take a while to complete, you can start adding new bookmarks to your new Diigo account. Before Furl is completely phased out, you can still access your Furl data there and export them elsewhere. The choice is yours.
- Furl cache (archives): This transfer only takes care of your bookmark links. We are evaluating the the best possible solution to transfer those cached pages, but it will take some time. So please stay tuned! Meanwhile, you can access Furl directly and export them there.
We are very pleased that Furl has become part of Diigo.com and would like to warmly welcome you all to the Diigo community!
Given that we have constant website & toolbar new updates, we will be phasing out Furl and migrating Furl users to Diigo. Meanwhile, we have made transferring your Furl links to Diigo very quick and easy:
1) Go to the transfer page: http://www.diigo.com/import_all/transfer_furl
2) Enter your Furl username / password, agree to our Terms of service, & follow the steps
3) Once the transfer is complete, you will receive an email from us with your login info
- Due to the huge amount of transfer requests that we’re processing at this time, the transfer may take one to a few days to complete. Thanks for your patience.
- While your Furl data transfer may take a while to complete, you should be able to access your Diigo user account right away. Use the diigo username (should be given during your transfer Step #2 process) and same furl password to access your new diigo account.
- Once bookmarks are imported, it will still take one or a few days for your tags to get indexed, shown and searched properly.
- Although you cannot add new bookmark to your furl account now, you can still log into your Furl account, access your old bookmarks, andinitiate “export” to backup your links and cache documents
When you sign in to Diigo the very first time, you will be prompted to install either our Diigo’s toolbar (Firefox / IE), or Diigolet (all major browsers supported). Then you’ll be ready to begin Diigoing!
The Diigo team is passionate about making Diigo the best knowledge sharing and management platform for individuals, work groups, and companies. We look forward to having your active participation in the Diigo community. Lots more exciting projects forthcoming. Stay tuned, as we continue to innovate and evolve!

Twitter is nothing short of a phenomenon. There are lots of reasons why Twitter has become popular, one of which is due to the many different ways to post and view Tweets.
Good news for Twitter fans: check out Diigo’s “(Annotated) Twitter-This“ ~ we’ve combined the convenience of bookmarking / annotating with Twitter, and made it super easy for you to post interesting (annotated) link with a shorten URL to Twitter. Most importantly, these are not just ordinary simple shorten urls… Diigo’s “(Annotated) Twitte-this” also allows you to easily add highlights and sticky notes to any webpage, and then share the annotated page with your twitter followers. Result? They will just see an ordinary link in the twitter message; however, when clicking on the link, they can also see your highlights and sticky notes right on the webpage! Cool, huh?!
There are two easy ways to do this:
1) Click the “Bookmark” button on the diigo toolbar to open up the bookmarking window. Simply check off “Twitter this” and bookmark as usual.
When you click “Save”, a Twitter-this input window will pop up with a shorten URL and link title. You can further edit the 140 characters. Click “Send” will automatically send this tweet for your Twitter account. It will also automatically save it as a bookmark in your diigo account. That’s it!
2) Similarly, click “Send” >> “To Twitter” on the toolbar. Use this when you’ve already bookmarked or don’t plan to bookmark the link into diigo.
Whatever method you prefer, Diigo’s “(Annotated) Twitterthis” seamlessly integrates your workflow and makes it easy to share your online discovery to Twitter without having to open up another app. Check it out and let us know what you think!
