Wow, so after years of committed social bookmarking monogamy I have finally cheated on del.icio.us, with ma.gnolia. I am tired of waiting for any upgrades on the del.icio.us site (I mean, seriously… it’s been years) and for some reason my del.icio.us blog feed hasn’t been working lately, which just isn’t cool with me.
I am pretty pleased so far with ma.gnolia, the interface is certainly much nicer. It was pretty lame that I had to spend a bunch of time manually re-privating my previously privated bookmarks after importing them into ma.gnolia, but I think that’s all taken care of now.
The one feature I am desperately missing is being able to see how many other people are linking to my same links – this is often how I found the best content and most interesting people. And speaking of people, while I’m not sure how many users are on ma.gnolia it seems that absolutely none of my friends are. So I’m kind of lonely.
So I’ll most likely be flip-flopping for a while, searching out another solution until I can find one that works. Any suggestions to ease my troubled bookmarking soul?
