Clipmarks, a New York-based company, is a social bookmarking site that allows users to contribute the most interesting bits of information they find on the web. The site is moderated by the community as users "pop" items they find most interesting to help bubble them to the top, similar to Digg, Netscape and Riffs. Clipmarks differs from most other social bookmarking sites because instead of posting links to entire web pages, Clipmarks offers a clipping tool that lets users extract pieces of compelling content, including video, from within pages and post the select pieces for everyone to see. Check out the Clipmarks demo video below for a quick preview of how the Clipmarks tool works.
Clipmarks strives to offers a platform for people to showcase the most interesting information found on the web. Some of the most popular clipmarks can be found here. Clipmarks recently published a pie chart of the top 25 topics on Clipmarks which I have included below.
Bottom-line: Clipmarks is a social bookmarking site with a Digg-like rating system that offers a unique way to save portions of websites to offer bite sized highlights of the web for others to discover.
