Every day you use the internet to learn, interact and share information. That information can come from simply reading what your friends are sharing, watching an insightful video, listening to a really good podcast or spending your time in search looking for the information trail that will lead you to your answers. This by very definition is how the internet has become an effective tool for research.
Now to keep on top of your research you need effective tools to find, bookmark, read and annotate this information.
Thanks to a few of our great followers on Twitter I discovered instant euphoria with a service called Diigo. Now, what is cool about Diigo is that it’s a social bookmarking website which allows you to bookmark and tag web-pages. Additionally, it helps to highlight any part of a webpage and attach sticky notes to specific highlights or to a whole page.
I started using it with some market research I needed to do and it was very effective for building notes, and it not only did web pages but also supported PDF documents that I found from the web.
After using it for the past week, I had the thought that we need to integrate this in with Enginuity. So we quickly built a feature to do this and launched it!
This saved me time while I was in “research mode” so I could bookmark and make notes across a whole bunch of different information that comes from my searches in a matter of minutes.
If you find this as a useful tool join in the conversation and share.
