Websites such as digg.com and del.icio.us are referred to as social bookmarking – or social news – sites. Simply, they allow you to bookmark a page of interest anywhere on the web, save it for future reference and share it with all other subscribers.
And, with most of these sites, fellow users can rate the article in question – giving it a thumbs up or thumbs down. The higher the rating, the more visible the link.
Once you’ve registered to which ever site(s) you chose (see details below) simply click on the button on your article of choice. All sites linked to are all free to use.

The easy way to share articles >
Want to share an article you’ve seen on this blog online with a friend? It’s easy for you to share the story with friends and community sites all over the web.
These sites – commonly called ’social bookmark’ or ’social news’ sites – have large communities of web users who share interesting, useful and fun things on the web. You can add the address of the story you like to one of these sites, letting you share the stories you like best.
You’ll need to register for each of these sites – they’re all free and extremely easy to use – and then you can store, recommend and search for the websites and stories that interest you.
A bit more about the different sites >
del.icio.us https://secure.del.icio.us/register is one of the most popular social bookmarking sites. It allows you to keep track of what you read online, but also to share those bookmarks with other users, letting others find the stories you like. You can add short descriptions and keyword tags to each article you bookmark – making it easier for you to find them again, for others to find them, and for you to find other websites that might interest you!
Digg > http://digg.com/register is another of the most popular community news sites on the web. Users add articles to it – as you’ll be doing when you click the button – and every user who then reads and likes that article can vote for it (’digg’ it). The most voted for articles then climb up the rankings of the most popular articles on the site.
Reddit > http://reddit.com/login is a site where every vote and recommendation you make trains the site to know what sort of things you like and dislike – so it can recommend other sites and stories that it thinks you’ll like. You can submit sites, vote on ones submitted by other users, and explore sites recommended oth by the site and other users.
Newsvine > http://www.newsvine.com/_cms/help/faq is a news site where the prominence of stories is decided by what the users think is most important, rather than by an editorial team. Like Digg, you can submit articles, which will rise up the site the more votes they get – but with Newsvine, you can also write your own articles and comment on articles by others.
NowPublic > http://www.nowpublic.com/user/register is a news site where users not only share news stories they’ve found on the web, but anybody can add to that topic with their own pictures and videos – they can become ‘citizen journalists’.
