And in case you are interested in Annotea shared bookmarks, which at least I 
think belong to the category of social bookmarking tools and I have been 
talking a long time about this idea. You can look e.g. the following papers:



Or the work done in Firefox/Mozilla (http://www.annotea.org/mozilla/ubi.html).


Quoting "Hammond, Tony" <T.Hammond@nature.com>:

> Hi All:
> A pair of papers just published today in D-Lib Magazine [1] by Nature

> * Social Bookmarking Tools (I): A General Review [3]
> * Social Bookmarking Tools (II): A Case Study - Connotea [4]
> * Editorial - Personalized Information Organization [5]
> These papers describe the current state of play with respect to the new crop

> well-known exemplars of the genre. These papers describe how such tools can
> be specialized as web-based reference managers. Connotea [6] is NPG's own

> can be stored online and tagged with user-supplied labels for easy later
> retrieval. Citation metadata is also supplied automatically by Connotea for
> a growing number of online journals and books services. Bookmarked
> references can be shared with other users and can be publicly commented
> upon. In fact, whole discussion threads can be built up around individual
> bookmarked references. (The papers are set up as living examples with their
