Diigo is a place where people can share research and knowledge while also doubling as a social network for people who have the same interest. Diigo can also be used for "IM" or Instant Messaging like AIM or Yahoo. Diigo stands for "Digest of Internet Information, Groups, and Other stuff."

Diigo can be a great tool for the educational setting because it lets parents and teachers communicate with one another about the students, the student's homework, or upcoming test. Also teachers can post lectures and power points on Diigo incase a student missed school. Students can also create a Diigo account to find information from other people on Diigo who are interested in similar things. Diigo can be used with other applications such as Facebook and Google.
