Sharing Digital Photos

You’ve taken your personal pictures and downloaded them. Now what? SHARE THEM!
The internet makes it easy. A variety of websites offer FREE uploading and sharing of digital pictures. Most require you to become a “member,” but that’s free, too!

Accessible Bookmarks/Social Bookmarking

“With all the technology we have, why can’t I just access my bookmarks from anywhere?” The good news is: you can, with one of these Web sites:

 
All require you to register for free, and then have their own steps to follow, but all allow you to import your “bookmarks” or “favorites” from your home computer and then access them from any other computer with internet access. If you have been crying out for this ability, here’s your chance!!
