* Social Bookmarking introduced on MSDN

MSDN just got better with the release of V1 of social bookmarking on MSDN social, TechNet Social and Expression Social.

Now even the content outside of msdn can be aggregated and discovered on MSDN which will remove the need & dependency on external search engines altogether to find content on Microsoft Technologies.

List of available features in this release :

  • Organize your bookmarks online.
  • Discover popular resources on any topic.
  • Find users and subscribe to their feed.
  • Feeds of bookmarks from experts.
  • Show off your expertise. The redesigned profile page brings your profile and your contributions together in one place.
  • Import your favorites from Internet Explorer or Firefox, or import your bookmarks from Delicious. You can do this on the Tools page.
  • Add a bookmarking widget to your blog so that others can save your pages to MSDN/TechNet. You can see my widget on the right side of my blog. Find the code for adding the widget on the Tools page. (Note, this is only available in English until October.)
  • Available in 12 languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Brazilian-Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Korean, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Italian, and Czech): When you save bookmarks using a localized bookmarking site, that bookmark is only visible on the localized site. This allows a regional community to build their own unique database of language-specific bookmarks.
