Dogear: Social bookmarking in the enterprise

  title={Dogear: Social bookmarking in the enterprise},
  author={David R. Millen and Jonathan Feinberg and Bernard Kerr},
  journal={Proceedings of the SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems},
We describe a social bookmarking service de-signed for a large enterprise. We discuss design principles addressing online identity, privacy, information discovery (including search and pivot browsing), and service extensi-bility based on a web-friendly architectural style. In addi-tion we describe the key design features of our implementa-tion. We provide the results of an eight week field trial of this enterprise social bookmarking service, including a de-scription of user activities, based on… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Personalized retrieval in social bookmarking

A personalized ordering algorithm is described that leverages the fact that refinding, rather than discovery (finding a bookmark for the first time), makes up the majority of bookmark accesses and would lead to improved bookmark rankings.

Social bookmarking and exploratory search

It is concluded that social bookmarking services support various kinds of exploratory search, and provide better personal bookmark management and enhance social navigation.

Social bookmarking and information seeking

There are two distinguishing characteristics of social bookmarking systems: the use of keywords, or tags, that a user enters to describe the links he or she saves and the social nature of their use.

Identifying experts and authoritative documents in social bookmarking systems

A novel graph-based Expert and Authoritative Resource Location (EARL) algorithm to find the most authoritative documents and expert users on a given topic in a social bookmarking system and its ability to locate authoritative resources and domain experts in Delicious is evaluated.

Social Intellisense: A Task-Embedded Interface to Folksonomies

Social Intellisense is a user interface mechanism for folksonomies that allows users to collaboratively “remap” web and user-added content via strings of their own creation via strings that point to services on the web.

Designing a Visual Analytic System to Represent Bookmark Sharing Data

A visual analytic system that represents bookmark-sharing data among the relative users and sites based on the extensive social bookmarking data of, which enables users to explore sites and other users' blogs that may supply them with the information they need more efficiently.

Augmenting Employee Profiles with People-Tagging

This paper presents a system that enables users to tag other users with key words that are displayed on their profiles, and discusses how people-tagging is a form of social bookmarking that enables the community to maintain part of the employee directory.

Searching for experts in the enterprise: combining text and social network analysis

A user study of SmallBlue, a social-context-aware expertise search system that can be used to identify experts, see dynamic profile information and get information about the social distance to the expert, before deciding whether and how to initiate contact.

WaterCooler: exploring an organization through enterprise social media

WaterCooler is described, a tool that aggregates shared internal social media and cross-references it with an organization's directory and changed users' perceptions of their workplace, made them feel more connected to each other and the company, and redistributed users' attention outside their own business groups.

JabberWocky: Crowd-Sourcing Metadata for Files

The goal of JabberWocky is to overcome the “cold-start” problem of personal file systems and to provide recommendations in a scalable way while maintaining the user’s privacy.



Information archiving with bookmarks: personal Web space construction and organization

Bookmarks are used as "personal Web information spaces" to help people remember and retrieve interesting Web pages. A study of personal Web information spaces surveyed 322 Web users and analyzed the

Supporting cooperative and personal surfing with a desktop assistant

The design of an assistant called Vistabar, which lives on the Windows desktop and operates on the currently active web browser, and how such a too1 may be used to support activities in both cooperative and personal surfing is described.

The Structure of Collaborative Tagging Systems

A dynamical model of collaborative tagging is presented that predicts regularities in user activity, tag frequencies, kinds of tags used, bursts of popularity in bookmarking and a remarkable stability in the relative proportions of tags within a given url.

The range of issues surrounding alerting services for digital libraries, their design and use is greater than one may anticipate and the far-reaching implications for the design of, and interaction with, libraries are highlighted.

A multi-agent system for collaborative bookmarking

A new distributed collaborative bookmark system, called COWING (for COllaborative Web IndexING system), composed of a set of assistant agents, called WINGS, and a central agent that manages the user's organization.
