Microsoft’s Live Labs introduced a new service Thumbtack that lets users collect snippets of information from Web sites and share the collections with others. It is an easy way to save links, photos, and anything else you find on the Web in a single place.
Thumbtack is an easy way to gather and share links, photos, and text, from different Web sites and save all of the data in the form of a collection to a single place at thumbtack. Users can share collections with other people in a couple of ways. The “share” button opens a small window where the user can enter e-mail addresses to send the collection to. Or, the “publish” button creates a URL for the collection that the user can cut and paste to send to someone via e-mail or instant message, or embed in a blog or website.
Thumbtack includes gadgets which enhance and extend the capabilities of Thumbtack and enable people to do more with their content, such as compare different items by price or location or automatically find and map addresses. Clips within Thumbtack can also be annotated with properties and then viewed as a scatter plot or bar graph to help sort, filter and visualize content within a collection.
Thumbtack works in Internet Explorer and Firefox, but some features are not support in Firefox.You can sign in Thumbtack through your hotmail account.
