Delicious – Getting Web Cred as a Yummy Bookmarker

This post is a confession: I am a nOOb when it comes to Delicious – the social bookmarking site.  For the uninitiated, this is the description of Delicious on their Help page:

Delicious is a social bookmarking service that allows users to tag, save, manage and share web pages from a centralized source. With emphasis on the power of the community, Delicious greatly improves how people discover, remember and share on the Internet.

What I like about the site is that my bookmarks show up on any machine I work on.  The tool bar is installed on my home and work computers, so everything is centralized.  It works a lot like Twitter in the sense that you find interesting people who tag things that you find interesting too and follow thiem.  As you discover things of interest people follow.

That’s the formula, but what is the reality?  What is your experience as a web tagger?  This is the promise of Web 3.0 and beyond: our search results will be more relevant and the web will learn about us from the identities we establish.  Can sites like Delicious be the pre-cursor to it all?
