There are so many ways to harvest, save, share, archive, organize links,etc ~ aka bookmarking. I've been using Diigo increasingly with MOOCs, although not exclusively. In particular, I particularly appreciate the feature for highlighting and annotating actual pages. I have even used it for entire books at the Gutenberg Project.
Using comment feature as forum to discuss shared works is another feature that goes under-used. It seems worth trying as a text-specific discussion option. Subscribing to rss feed for open collections and topics is another
I started online social bookmarking with Delicious and have Vance Stevens' Multiliteracies to thank for tagging awareness and skills. Yes, I tagged before but haphazardly, not always consistently. I still have bookmarks on Delicious, some automatically saved from links shared on social media sites. Bitly. Bit.ly, my usual link shortener, saves not just links shared using bit.ly but as copies of links otherwise shared but shortened with bit.ly. For now, I'm putting off sorting or even looking through the Bit.ly archive, but may try out the bundling feature when (if) I ever do.
Although I am recommend Diigo, I am still keeping and adding to Delicious. I find they complement one another (even if I do occasionally lose track of where I stashed a link), which might not be the case for all users. Personal learning / knowledge management systems or networks are just that ~ personal.
