Zigtag’s social features

Zigtag has a lot of social features in it, turning your tagging into a social habit. Some of the social features include:

  • The ability to add friends
  • The ability to add special interest groups
  • The ability to send a bookmark to your friends quickly
  • Discussions on all the major objects in Zigtag (i.e. discussions on a group, tag or URL – coming soon).
  • News feed

Zigtag’s newsfeed is really where all the social features come together. It keeps you up to date on what is happening with Zigtag by showing you what you’re friends have bookmarked, new groups that have been created, people that have accepted your friend request, and bookmarks that have been added to groups. This is a place where you can go and see cool new sites that your friends have found, and it’s quite addictive.

What other things would you like to see in your news feed?

Zigtag groups are a great new approach to collaborative research and learning that allows any group of people to share resources and discuss the group through a forum.  A group can be private, membership only (i.e. anyone can view the group, but can’t add to it) or public. You can create a group for your team at work, for a specific project you’re working on, for your club or your class at school, or browse the Zigtag groups to find a group with interests similar to your own.
