    Nothing like a dedicated Slack channel for information sharing between team members.

    Slack is best. Offering what you need, plus you can have bots deployed here which can fetch you top articles from custom sources. Also, you can chat there.

      As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.

      I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.

      Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.

    We're still using a dedicated channel in Slack. There is no good / visual Archive which sucks, but still works the fastest easiest. Suggested Raindrop because we tried that too, but it felt too cumbersome.

    I love Raindrop because 1) allows tags 2) collections and nested collections 3) allows notes in the description to give article link context 4) iOS app allows a shortcut to be able to drop in links from other apps.

      I used to use Stache for my bookmarks before d3i abandoned the product (despite being paid). Stache was amazing for a couple reasons: when you bookmarked a webpage they captured the HTML and a really good full-page screenshot. They used the HTML to search and to render a preview of the page later if you were offline, and the screenshot was used for a thumbnail and to let you view the page as it was when you captured it, even if it changed or died since then. Alas, syncing broke in Stache a couple years ago and I switched over to Raindrop.

      Raindrop initially had new features coming out frequently. It seemed like they were going to grow fast and start charging money once they had a healthy user base in order to hire on additional people. They did grow fast, but I think the single developer lost interest in developing it so the product stagnated and a traditional support channel never materialized. They did add a paid subscription, but with a modest additional featureset.

      Most unfortunately, Raindrop has failed to figure out how to properly capture and resurface bookmarked pages. Thumbnails are often a small icon from the page blown up into pixelated oblivion and then cropped square. There is a feature to capture a screenshot of a page, but there's zero UI feedback once you opt into it on a given bookmark and it frequently doesn't work. Search is even worse: results are sorted by recency, there isn't an option to use relevancy, and Raindrop doesn't capture page content so only the page title and description are searched. Tags aren't even searched unless you specifically add the hash symbol, making the benefits of tagging limited.

      I'm sure something else will come along and replace Raindrop for me eventually, but for now, I'll continue amassing useful links in an utterly unsearchable form in hopes that they'll suddenly become useful one day.

      I've used this pretty much since it first launched and I really love this app, I use it frequently throughout my day on all my devices. I love that I am able to have various collections, customize them and just really keep my bookmarks synced across devices. It's a handy and very useful app, I highly recommend it.

    Uhhh.... so I built this for the sole reason to share bookmarks across a team in one place... literally. Basically made it to share bookmarks with the team when they were on-boarding but it's been helpful with other use cases.

    I've created this tool for developers, to save and organize their code snippets. Sharing and Team Collaboration features are currently in development. It's mainly built for developers, but can be used with anything you feel like: links, articles, large chunks of text (markdown support). There's also a browser extension so you can snip stuff directly from the pages you visit. Hope this is helpful.
