Pearltrees Launches Embeds – Makes Bookmarks More Useful

Online bookmarking tools haven’t really changed much over the last few years. Most services still present you with a basic list of tagged links. Pearltrees, however, is taking a radically different approach. The Paris-based company organizes links as a collection of “pearls” that are connected by a mind map-like tree graph. Starting today, you can also embed these collections in your own blog posts.

Pearltrees Embeds

The company, which launched a new beta version of its service last month, notes that these new embeds will give bloggers and journalists the ability to present their readers with a new way to explore a topic in depth. The Flash-based Pearltrees embed opens up new links in an overlay, so readers stay on your site while they are exploring your links.

A tool like this can come in handy when you want to show the research that went into a longer article, for example, or whenever you want to give your readers more background and context than you could pack into a simple list of links in a blog post. Embedding your Pearltrees map is as easy as copying and pasting a short code snipped from the service’s embed dialog.

Pearltrees also gives you the ability to share links with other users in real time and to subscribe to other users’ collections. This makes it easy to collaborate with others and it also allows you to mash up the research collections of other Pearltrees users.

To get started, simply sign up for an account here. Pearltrees offers plugins for both Firefox and Chrome, as well as a basic bookmarklet that is compatible with all other browsers.
