Faves is a social bookmarking and networking software solution that installs a single browser button for users to bookmark a webpage.

Description

Update

BlueDot Inc. sold the faves.com domain and ceased operations in December of 2011 ----- Faves, formerly called BlueDot, is a bookmarking site with a uniquely anti-social approach. The relaunched site adds features making their bookmark database more relevant and easier to use for anti-social bookmarkers. At the core, it has the same social and privacy features of the old Blue Dot. However, they've added a new method of finding trusted links that doesn't require building yet another social network. The new site adds a topic network that does a lot of the networking and recommending implicitly along with an easy-to-use feed reader for sorting through new links. It's kind of like Digg and Delicious combined with Google Reader.

Users can annotate their links as well as see multimedia previews in order to better understand what they are looking at. The bookmarking system works similarly to See More
