Diigo lets you collect and organize anything on the web to access and share

     I  view a lot of different sites to find information about technology and education and have been looking for a great way to bookmark and organize the various content that I find . Diigo may just be the perfect solution. 

     Diigo is a cloud based personal information management system which lets you collect information for later viewing. It works with most web browsers and mobile devices to let you access information easily. 

     You can collect notes, images, documents, sticky notes, highlighted text and bookmarks and then have them all gathered together in the your own cloud library (My Library) on the  cloud based Diigo server, enabling you to access the content from multiple devices. 

     Diigo is a good way to highlight and bookmark content as you read so that you can access the content again later. When you do bookmark, you can tag the information to make it easier to find. 

     The thing that I really like about Diigo is that educators can upgrade to get an educators account for free. 

     I signed up for an account and have requested the education upgrade. The Diigo toolbar has been added to the top of my Chrome browser, allowing me to start collecting and organizing the content I find. 

     If you read a lot of online content and are looking for a simple tool to help you bookmark everything to read later across different devices, then this looks like a perfect tool. I will continue using it and provide more feedback after I have tried it for a while.
