Clipboard is a web-application that goes a step beyond most social bookmarking sites by giving people tools to save and share their favorite parts of selected websites. Rather than saving a generic link to an interesting blog post, for example, a Clipboard user can save his favorite image or video without worrying about saving everything else on the page.
Searching through rows of bookmarked links looking for a specific recipe or vacation photo can take too much time. Clipboard is a visual bookmarking tool, which means you can scan through images until you find the bookmark you were searching for. Once you create an account with Clipboard and start following whichever tags you find interesting—like #fashion, #art, or even #economics—you can install the browser plugin or drag Clipboard’s bookmarklet tool to your toolbar. When you find an image, audio file, video, slideshow, web-application, online game, or virtually anything else worthwhile online, just click the bookmarklet tool. Clipboard encourages you to organize the things you save by adding them to various boards, which can be categorized by topic or file type. The flash content, videos, and web-apps you save to your account can be viewed directly from Clipboard, which means you don’t need to return to the original source to watch the video or slideshow you saved unless you’re doing so because you want to check out what else is on the site.
Clipboard separates itself from popular applications like Pinterest by offering a number of useful tools that Pinterest does not, the most important of which are the option to keep any board private and the ability to view content directly through Clipboard without having to return to the original source.
