Lists Basics

In addition to tags, and better than folders, "List" is a great way to organize, share and display specific collections of bookmarks. Once you add bookmarks to your list, you can easily drag and drop items to arrange the order in any sequence that you'd like to present. Best of all,  once you create a list, when you   
click the button, you can browse, play and annotate any list of URLs as a slide show! It's great for content browsing, sharing, and creating unique presentations based on web content.

To Create A List

Click the "Create A List"  button in the Home » My Lists" section.   Fill in the fiields marked with an asterisk.

Tip: You can accept the automatically assigned URL or you can edit it, but keep in mind that the URL is the one option you cannot later edit.
