Diigo Guiide

If you have trouble completing this task, please do not get stressed.
 If you haven’t succeeded after 15 minutes - Stop!
 You can visit my in my office from 4-5:30 pm next Friday (March 15) or we can do it together after class. 

Diigo is a social bookmarking tool that allows you to save, describe, organize, and share your bookmarks from any computer, any time.  To begin using Diigo....

 Task Summary
 1. Register at
2. Check your email and
    click activation link
3. Log in to Diigo
4. Join the BUFS Culture Group
5. If necessary, add the Diigo Chrome extension here or the MSIE digolet here
5. Start Bookmarking

Fill in the basic user info

Go to your email and click the activation link.

This part is unnecessary on the PUFS laptops -it's already been done.  I can skip this step and look below
Go to the Diigo Tools Page
Click 'Get it in Chrome extension gallery now'
and then install.

Once it is installed, you will see a blue 'd' in the upper right corner of your browser. Any time you want to bookmark a page, you can click book mark.  If you'd like to highlight part of the page or create a sticky note, click those. You can also share this link via twitter, facebook, email, and/or create an annotated link. To bookmark a page, click 'tag'.
You will then see a window like the one below. 
You can enter a title, tags (which will work like categories) and share it with the BUFS Culture Group if you you think others might be interested.   You can also choose to keep bookmarks 'private' if you wish.

 Diigo Groups allow you to join other groups of people interested in the same kinds of sites as you.
Go to the BUFS Culture and click 'join this group'.
Message to owner is optional and you can choose how often you want to receive email notifications of new links to the group (you can change this later).
