Sloog allows users to bookmark locations and avatars using a free in-world Heads-up Display (HUD), identify them using custom tags, and save them to an online profile. Each Sloog contains the Second Life URL (SLURL) to the location and the list of descriptive tags added by the user.
Although users can make bookmarks private, the best feature of Sloog is the ability to share and explore public bookmarks (or “Sloogs”). The tagging system is like del.icio.us, and is lots more user friendly than the SL search.
Erin also noted that in the list of popular tags on Sloog‘s website, “Education” is one of the largest! Clicking on the tag will take you to a list of all locations in Second Life that have been tagged as educational — a great way to find and share new places or promote your own educational space.
