Do you want to find a better way to organize your favorite websites and web resources?  Check out the options below.  Don't just use the bookmark feature on your web browser...there are much better ways to get organized!  All of the sites listed below are free.

Symbaloo- Organize your web resources into an easy to view WebMix.  Click the link to see an example.

Pearltrees- This site allows you to organize your resources into trees that branch out.  If you are a visual person, this is a great tool for you.  To see an example of my own personal pearltree click here.

LiveBinders- Organize your resources into online "binders".  This is one of my favorite organization tools.

If This Then That- This cool web application lets you allow web applications to work together.  For example, if you upload a picture to Facebook then you can tell ITTT to also upload it to Picasa.  There are a variety of functions that work with 55 different web applications.  If you use a lot of different web applications this would be worth looking into. Once you set a function it does it automatically.

SpringPad- Create notebooks for recipes, books, movies or anything else that matters to you, together with friends, family and co-workers. Save ideas and info from anywhere and access them whenever you want.

MiddleSpot- Take it with you. Create a personal dashboard across all of your devices. It's the simplest way to view, read, and watch your documents, photos, links, and videos on all your devices.

Evernote- Remember everything. Capture anything. Access anywhere. Find things fast. Save your ideas, things you like, things you hear, and things you see. Evernote works with nearly every computer, phone and mobile device out there. Search by keyword, tag or even printed and handwritten text inside images.

Inslices- Think beyond bookmarks: Inslices lets you collect, organize and collaborate around the interesting pieces of web pages found while surfing. Collect articles, videos, products, and other pages selections, or let Inslices suggest them for you. Create and collaborate to lists based on your interests and network. Keep track of your slices and follow other users discoveries.

Google Bookmarks- Since you already have a Google email account, you can easily use Google Bookmarks. With Bookmarks, you'll be able to save time with quick links to your favorite websites. Get your bookmarks on any computer. No matter where you may be surfing the web, your bookmarks can stay with you just by signing in. Keep your bookmarks organized. Add searchable labels and notes to your bookmarks to find them easily and keep them organized.

Delicious- An oldie but a goodie, Delicious allows users to o collect and showcase your passions from across the web. Save what you like - videos, pictures, tweets, blog posts, or articles - on topics you enjoy and search through others’ collections of links to discover cool stuff!
