Social bookmarking in UK papers

Fellow UClaner Louise Thomas has published the findings of her research that looked at the use of social bookmarking. Plenty of interesting stuff

The type of bookmarks used also distinguishes the two groups, with links to sites such as Fark, NewsVine, MySpace and NowPublic proving much more popular among nationals than regionals.

While regional websites have a greater percentage of websites using the StumbleUpon (up 18.9% against nationals) and Facebook buttons (up 16.2% against the nationals).

And a nice slideshow of her finding.

This makes a nice companion piece to the ever excellent Martin Belam’s new series looking at social bookmarks
