Earlier this year, I pointed you to a preview of a social bookmarking application. This week we released v 1.0 of social bookmarking for MSDN, TechNet, and Expression enabling technical professionals to easily share their web favorites, find and connect with each other, and publish community-generated content directly to these sites.
This new version of the bookmarking application includes several new capabilities including the ability to subscribe to people and tags, support for 12 different languages, import tools from other bookmarking services you might already use, and new and improved design.
The new social platform release will also preview MSDN Code Search that has specialized features for finding code on various Microsoft sites including the MSDN Library by extending MSDN search. In the future releases this will expand to cover MSDN Code Gallery, MSDN Forums, and more. For more details on MSDN Code Search including tips for how to search for code, see Rob Veliz's blog.
For more details on these features, check out Chris Slemp and Taylor Parsons’s blogs.
