Diigo (DEE-go) is a Social bookmarking website which allows signed-up users to bookmark and tag web-pages. Additionally, it allows users to highlight any part of a webpage and attach sticky notes to specific highlights or to a whole page. These annotations can be kept private, shared with a group within Diigo or a special link forwarded to someone else. The name "Diigo" is an abbreviation for "Digest of Internet Information, Groups and Other stuff".[1]

The launch of Diigo met with mixed responses from the unimpressed [2] to the enthusiastic [3]. Diigo beta was listed as one of the top 10 research tools by CNET in 2006.[4]

Outside the website, Diigo's graphical user interface includes an optional bookmarklet, or a customizable toolbar, with various search capabilities. Highlight is enabled by a menu, that can either appear automatically when content is selected, or be embedded into the Context menu.

A Video Tutorial of Diigo features and capabilities can be found [1] Here (Official Help Page). Diigo recently acquired web-clipping service Furl for an undisclosed amount. Furl's parent company is Looksmart. [5] [6]
