WsArchHighYou can see them now - the brand new organizing tools. As most of our users know, when the knowledge grows, the number of bookmarks and articles grow too and the "Flood" may come any minute Smile Users with more than 500 bits of knowledge know that feeling Smile And since we provide the best service, we will give you the solution.

 

One natural solution is categorizing and grouping in folders. You already know this and probably you use it. Now, the new stuff - Workspace, Highlight and Archive. What are these?

 

 
Unique balastra blog

blog_knowledgeI guess you have seen the changes from the last days. As you know, sharing knowledge is one of the most important goals we want to achieve. And now we are one step further achieving it.


From now on you can share not only single bookmarks and articles but folders and even the whole shared user's profile. This gives you the unique possibility to create public profile with knowledge categories and share them separately thus creating an unique knowledge blog.

 
Take care of your health

healthDo you care about your health? Do you care about what you eat? Are you interested in fitness, diets, organic foods, close to nature life, alternative medicine and homeopathy, natual products, nutirion and nutrition add-ons, etc. ?

You find such an information in blogs, Internet pages and other totally unexpected places. How about if you can keep it in one place? Wouldn't it be perfect to have your own health knowledge base? And even more - create your own articles and share all that with your friends.

 
Did you know ...

light_bulb_whyAs you can see in the up left menu or from the front page, a new section was released several days ago. What is it? There was an old newspaper called Orbita. I cannot hide it - it was one of my favorites. It had many articles about life, science, technology speculations and it was really fun - every time it was different and provocative. In the middle of that newspaper you could find short news - interesting facts, leading technology and science news, pure knowledge. And I thought, "Why can't we have the same?"

 
Share with friends

share_with_friendsYou already have the possibility to add bookmarks for bits of knowledge that interest you. You have the possibility to add your own content. What is the next logical step? You are interested in something and the next you would like is to share it with your friends. From this moment on, you already can do that. You can define any bookmark or article for private use or for sharing with friends.

 
Add your own content

add_contentProbably most of you have made the conclusion that balastra is just a site where you can store your favorite links. Yes, you can do that but the main goal is totally different - to make it a platform for storing all your personal knowledge and be able to share it with your friends afterwards. Whether it will be a bookmark, a file, a picture gallery, a document, an article or any kind of digital content, you will be able to store it and group it in the way that best suits you. No more predefined categories, you have full control.

I like to read

booksDo you like it too? Books, articles, blogs, even newspapers and magazines - all representations of combined words with meaning. And the Internet is the absolute treasury containing billions of them. As you all know, some of them are really very precious. Even more, most of the biggest libraries together with top IT companies like Microsoft and Google declared their will to digitize all the books and put them on the Internet. Of course, maybe not all will be free but still, you will have the chance to read sometimes absolute archive texts to which you do not have access anyway.
