Social networking is one of the major reasons why many people use the internet. This type of connecting with others on sites such as Facebook, Bebo, Twitter and You Tube has had a phenomenal response from the wider audience. The use of online bookmarks at these sites has also presented a valuable way of making money.

Although these are not the only social networking sites which make use of online bookmarks, they are two of the recently most popular sites. Facebook began life as a means for students in college to connect and has grown phenomenally. In the beginning it was only young people who used it, but now people of all ages, from all over the world are active users and this is what makes it such a powerful site for sharing information and making money.

These other users may even decide to bookmark the site themselves. They are able to store these links for later use, hence using the word "bookmarking". These lists of links or websites can be made public or private information. Anyone who wants their own storage space to bookmark links just registers for it at the site.

Members of social networking sites bookmark links to these in a specific storage space which they register for. This makes it possible for users to store the links and use them later, and it also makes it possible for them to share these with other users.

Online bookmarking first came into being as far back as 1996, with the first generation of social networking sites. However at that time there was no model in use to actually create money making opportunities. With the growth of affiliate marketing this has now changed.

In 2001 when the dot com bubble burst, many of these social networking sites went bust, and the second generation of these started again around 2005. Together with affiliate marketing, the combination of these two tools makes online bookmarking a popular way to market products and services.

These powerful marketing tools have effectively set off a bookmarking revolution on the web. There is no comparison between online social bookmaking and traditional search engines. This is because people organize, rate and rank sites, not a search engine. No matter the complex algorithms used in search engines, they cannot beat the impact humans have.

Page results are ranked by the amount of users or by the amount of times a particular keyword has appeared. This is essential for search engine optimization and online bookmarking is an essential add-on for any company with an online marketing strategy.
