I had some difficulty using Delicious with a Yahoo! ID. I kept getting an error whenever I tried to change my Yahoo! account details.

I really liked my first experiences with Springpad and I am going to continue using it. However, I will not necessarily use it for bookmarking, but I will use it for notetaking, reminders, to-dos, and keeping track of books, movies and music I'm interested in buying etc. I especially like the mobile apps (for iPhone, iPad and Android) and the Google Chrome extension! You can find introductory videos at Springpad's YouTube channel.
Here is what some other genealogy bloggers are saying about Springpad:
- Olive Tree Genealogy Blog - Two Thumbs Up for Springpad! (A Review & Tutorial)
- FamHist - Using Springpad for Genealogy Research
So in summary, over the next week I am going to continue playing with the features of Diigo, and also continue reading the help files at Google Bookmarks (where my bookmarks are currently held and they may even stay there - but they will be better organised!). I am also going to continue playing with the features of Springpad for notekeeping.
