Google introduces social bookmarking

Google have unveiled their foray into the world of social bookmarking, a step that keeps them up with the likes of StumbleUpon, Digg, Furl and Del.icio.us.

Shared Stuff works by allowing you to share your favourite pages, push them to other social bookmarking sites, or email them. Feeds are also auto-generated, thumbnails are auto-attached from the site, and visit stats are tracked.

Essentially, the service adds a social element to the existing Google Bookmarks.

It will be fascinating to keep track on the progress of this feature, and to see if Google develop a community social element around it.
