Grazely – Secure Social Bookmarking

Grazely isn’t the first social bookmarking tool, but it just might be the most innovative. In addition to its basic web-based bookmarking features – which you can use to save articles from anywhere online and retrieve those articles from any browser or mobile device – Grazely also includes a feature that makes it easy to share website links with the people you consider a part of your closest business teams or social groups.

When it comes to using Grazely, the browser you choose doesn’t matter. In fact, you don’t even have to use a computer. Just sign up for an account and grab the bookmarklet tool to begin. Start grabbing as many links as you like – Grazely doesn’t have a limit, and you can save anything with just two clicks of the mouse. To make it easier to find all these links, you’ll want to implement some organizational practices. Tagging with Grazely is unique, in that single tags can be two separate words. (For example, you can tag bookmarks as “band camp” versus “bandcamp.”) If you don’t want to use tags to find the article you’ve saved, you can try the search feature instead. Grazely’s search feature is both powerful and accurate, and it allows you to search the entire database by keyword or tag.

If you work with a team or enjoy sharing links with your friends, then the part of Grazely you’ll be most interested in learning about is its Groups feature. When you organize your contacts and set up a group, you can share important links with the people you’ve chosen in just a few simple clicks.

Practical Uses:

  • Save all the articles you plan on reading later
  • Clip recipes and organize them by ingredients
  • Send links to websites with important information to your coworkers
  • Get access to the articles you’ve saved on your tablet or mobile phone
