We Heart It, Vi.sualize.us, Pintrest... The fact that there are three reasonably major ones means there were probably a number of minor ones that floundered.
Trouble is, what do you pick?
Well, if you're like me, all of them. Then narrow it. I started on We Heart It, and liked it a lot, but I found their off-site favouriting so clumsy it didn't do it for me.
Then I found VisulizeUs, which allows me to add a widget to my browser, letting me right-click and favourite the image that way, and even share it to social medias from there.
That is what I currently find to be the best.
Howeverrrrr, I heard about Pintrest. So I thought I'd try it. However they are in invitation-only mode, so I put in for an account. With luck it won't take too long and I can start scoping the place out. I want to pick one, and stay there. (Moving 1000+ images will not be fun if I move from VisualizeUs), but I want the one I pick to be reasonably permanent on the web and to have enough user-friendliness to it that I don't hate it every time I think about it.
There is also the issue of things like Ravelry and DeviantArt. There are things I like (sometimes love!) and I want to share that with people. However, they have their own individual built in favouriting systems, and I have to wonder if it would be weird to "Visualize/Heart/Pin" them. So I tend to use the built in systems first, then post things if that doesn't work/isn't available.
Which really goes against this whole connectivity/conglomerate/single page thing I want going on.
Ah, what is an internet addict to do.
I feel like asking reader questions this week, so I'll do another:
Do you use a favouriting site? Which one? If not, how do you keep track of all the things you see/do on the web and want to remember?
