What Exactly Is Bookmarkbaby.com ?
This is the interesting part, as we have three main goals we want to provide for our users. Overall, it is a user friendly interface that provides a quick and easy way to navigate the internet without having to waste time sifting through countless bookmarks within a browser, and typing web address’s. Multiple long term studies have shown that we recognize and locate images up to 30x faster than characters and words. Many of us waste several minutes each day sifting through a long list of bookmarks and typing web address's. BookMarkBaby’s graphical interface has several great benefits other than saving us time, such as allowing us to limit the use of today's tiny touch screen keyboards on our phones, and presenting tons of idea's, information, and news, that you would otherwise need to search for.. or may not even know about. We are also popular with the vision impaired. People who have poor eyesight have found our directory to be much easier to see than the average text and fonts, even if the wording has been magnified several times.
The second goal is to keep the latest and most popular websites at the top of the list and on the first few pages, making it super easy to get that website loaded with minimum effort. The third and maybe the most important, is solving the major problem of not being able to remember the sites you need to access using devices other than your own, while on vacation, using public computers in places like hotel business centers, public library's, or when upgrading to a new computer or device. These are only a few scenarios, you just might be using a friends phone for the moment, only to access a single website. With Bookmarkbaby, you can be sure you'll always have the important websites right when you need them most. Several years after we created this project, we noticed browsers such as Chrome, FireFox, and Opera incorporated graphical bookmarks embedded within their start pages. These bookmarks were large, square, and bulky. The biggest downfall for them was the amount of bookmarks one could place on a single start page. Currently they are so large, only 10 to 12 is the maximum fitment.
We quickly realized that very few people found this format to be useful enough to continue using it. We solve this problem by providing 90 bright, colorful, easy to read graphical bookmarks per page with plenty of room for expansion. Once a new user spends only a few days using the application, they instantly become familiar with the placement and location of the bookmarks, and find it much easier to see and click on a single button as opposed to any other method. We know this as a fact because, the very minute we are finished updating the site with any changes to the location of bookmarks, we receive instant emails from users complaining they can no longer easily locate the sites they visit every day. However we also find this to be very temporary, as the users remember the new locations within a matter of hours! We suggest that you try using the directory yourself starting now, and refrain from typing or searching for any popular websites that you normally use in order to gain a full understanding of its usefulness. Here are a few suggestions. First look over the entire first page of bookmarks. Look for websites that you normally visit at least once a week. Once you locate these sites, try to briefly remember the general area such as top right, center etc., however this is not a necessary step as it's a natural progression for most people.
When you visit BookMarkBaby again later in the day, you’ll instantly realize that you know where your favorite sites are, and at the very least can locate the ones you don’t remember the locations of without any hassle. This is how the human brain works, in the same way we can remember where we last left our car keys or mobile phone. These physical objects are not much different to our brains than a graphical image. Anyone who knows the story of how Google got started also knows how silly everyone thought their idea was. Family, friends, and strangers made fun of the site and refused to use it. Even after several years, family and close friends continued to ridicule and refuse to even entertain the idea while thousands of regular strangers became hooked on it. After only eight years, millions were using Google everyday while the CEO’s own family finally started to realize they themselves were the ones who made the mistake in believing someone they knew well could possibly have had such a wonderful idea and put it into fruition. We believe BookMarkBaby.com will be very similar. Below are a few important facts that will help first time users.
