    Collaborative annotation tools, such as Diigo, Reframe It, MyStickies, and Google Sidewiki, expand the concept of social bookmarking by allowing users not only to share bookmarks but also to digitally annotate web pages.

Users highlight text or images, add their own comments, and share those annotations with colleagues and friends of their choosing.
