Steal Magnolias

OK, so I couldn’t resist the pun on the movie title. But the subject of this post is not the movie at all. It is yet another social bookmarking site that joins the bandwagon of such sites. We already have del.icio.us, StumbleUpon and many other social bookmarkers. These sites basically allow you to store and share your favorite links with others across the world. The home page of these sites typically features links that are most popular among its users. Now to add to this is Magnolia.

The biggest question that comes to my mind now is…does all this choice translate into a better experience for me as an individual, how many sites will I remember at the end of a day? I may visit a few out of curiosity but may not be regular on them at all. Add to that a dozen social networking sites, tech news sites, tech blogs and memes, and what-have-you and I can surely see myself heading towards Web-burnout. God forbid that should happen though. Because, the Web has opened a hundred (or more) new doors for us and given us a fantastic medium to discover, share and grow.
