Pearltrees, created by Patrice Lamothe in 2007, is a great exploration and bookmarking tool that allows users to curate resources in teams , organize them in collections, duplicate them, share them and update them. Collections can include other collections, files, urls,images, photos, notes ,etc. Pearltrees users can synchronize their accounts with both Twitter and Facebook ,a functionality that supports the collection of new pearls each time a link is shared or tweeted. Collections can be embedded into most CMS (content management systems).A network of interests and users promote better curation as users become connections and searches are suggested daily .Bookmarks can be imported from browsers , collections can be exported and a web bookmarklet simplifies the process.
