Exercise 7 Pocket & Tumblr

Pocket is an online bookmarking application, that can seamlessly bookmark your interests across platforms. Using tags makes it an efficient way to note items for reading at a later stage, or for re-reading when doing research. Some browsers, such as Chrome or Firefox, have an addin or extension for Pocket, making it very easy to save references from the browser toolbar.
