Social bookmarking is when you save bookmarks (which are web addresses) to a public social bookmarking sites such as Digg or Del.icio.us so that you can access these sites regardless of what computer you may be on.
Not only are your bookmarks available to you wherever and whenever you need them, but they are also available to others to view and follow as well. When you set up profiles at the different social bookmarking sites, you gain followers and friends that look at the bookmarks you are saving, hence the social aspect comes into play.
These social bookmarked pages will also become indexed in the search engines due to the grass roots linking campaign.
