(For Twitter users, you can also twitter your online discovery! Find out more here)
7. Final result in diigo
8. Final result in del.icio.us
Also check out this video by PalmBreezeCAFE (School District of Palm Beach County) where Lee Kolbert and Lee Keller explain how to use Diigo’s crossing posting feature and much more.
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.
“Double cloud coverage” ~ now, that’s a good thing
