Social Bookmarking Tool Comparison

ConsultantCommons.org has created a Social Bookmarking Tool Comparison resource in an effort to keep track of and compare social bookmarking tools. From their site:

Introduction Purpose
This article looks at the evolving crop of social bookmarking tools, their functionality and examples of use. The goal is to help nonprofits understand the value of using social bookmarking tools and to determine which social bookmarking tool would be serve their needs. This is directed at nonprofit uses of these tools.

Version
The current version of this document is available at: http://www.consultantcommons.org/node/239 Updating
The landscape of social bookmarking tools is like the wild west. New tools are appearing (and disappearing) rapidly and the features of specific tools is also changing. Thanks to the open nature (in terms of syndication and APIs if not source) of many of these tools, third party add-ons can provide significant additional functionality. All of this means that the material in the article can become quickly out-of-date. For that reason, this has been set up, in CivicSpace parlance, as a book. This means that is editable by anyone who has a ConsulantCommons.org user account.

Thanks for pointing me to this excellent resource. It looks like nobody has yet profiled www.blinklist.com, our new personal and social bookmarking site.

Hmm... I tried to volunteer myself but don't know how to get added / actually sign up for it but will have to look into it.

Unfortunately, I don't know for sure, but it seems that all you have to do is register and log-in to be able to add content, or at least that seems to be the case according to these three pages:
