The Social Bookmarking plugin allows you to share bookmarks with your team. You can create a bookmark and save it in a Confluence space. To send the bookmark to other Confluence users, simply label it for their personal spaces or for public spaces. You can also subscribe to a bookmarks RSS feed.
A bookmark is a page which points to a website or other URL. The website or URL can be within or external to Confluence. The bookmark can also contain comments from the person who created the bookmark, telling you why the website is interesting.
What is an RSS feed?
RSS is a format used by a number of organisations to share news. You can subscribe to an 'RSS feed' and then use an 'RSS reader' to view the information in the feed. A feed is a URL (web address) which supplies the news upon request. A reader is a program which displays the news for you. Your reader may be on a website, an addon to your browser, part of your email program, or a stand-alone program.
The bookmarks feed is in RSS2 format. There are two feeds in each space:
- A feed for the bookmarks saved in a particular space. This might be:
- Your personal space, where you store all the bookmarks of interest to you, as well as the bookmarks you have sent to other people.
- A global space, where you or other people store bookmarks relevant to that space.
- A feed for the bookmarks labelled for a particular space. This might be:
- Your personal space, where you can see the bookmarks other people have sent to you.
- A global space, where you or other people have sent bookmarks relevant to that space.
