NEW SOCIAL networking features at del.icio.us means you can set up a "network" page (like a page filled with those tagging "irishblogs") that shows all links from other Irish del.icio.us accounts that you want to track. The network tab lets you easily share links inside your network with a single-click. You can get all these things by individually setting up query strings as RSS feeds. Brady Forrest is "subscribed to the feeds of several delicious users in my RSS reader and I've been able to send people links using the 'for:' tag".
As Bebo and boards.ie have shown, when you make it easier for people to add to their network, you see more activity, more sharing and more cross-tracking of shared interests. In effect, that means the way you set up a network helps nurture the viral effect of ideas. I would like to see if it's possible to see the most popular tags and marked content in my irishblogs network and to also see the most influential users in the classroom tag space that we're using in Tipperary Institute.
