Kids and del.icio.us

We’ve already talked about how you can use Flickr tags to create slideshows for your kid. Alison does something similar at del.icio.us, the yummy social bookmarking service:

I use del.icio.us to keep track of interesting websites, and create a ‘sidebar’ for my blog. A couple of months ago, I realised that when I spotted websites that my daughter or son would like, I could add ‘marianne’ or ‘jonathan’ tags to del.icio.us, and then give the kids a single bookmark to click (eg /del.icio.us/BohemianCoast/marianne). They get a continuous stream of interesting new sites with content they’ll like, and I don’t have to perpetually fuss with their bookmark lists; I can add sites from home, from work, from internet cafes.

What a great way to be involved in your kids’ Web exploration.
