Thanks, I've spiffed it up.  Learned a lot more about what is out there. Now we see why it is hard for the companies, lots of alternatives and competition.  A "Top 10" or 25 list would be interesting.

Note the section on tool pages used to describe the tools on the upper right. The Zeef on Content Curation. is especially strong.

One thing lacking in Papaly (and many tools) is a good feedback and discussion and improvement method (e.g. uservoice).  Maybe such a page should be connected to the Papaly et al. page.  Any suggestions as to how?

Also a minor lack is (unless I missed it) the ability to load all the urls in a category at one time. I use that in Firefox bookmarks a lot.

I'd like to learn more about the Cloud Notes section in the Awesome Websites. I think Fargo may be a good addition there.  And Simplenote is not there. While I generally use Evernote, the idea of a pure online service is always interesting.   Especially for easy sharing.

================

ADDED:
Back to Papaly.  Even though I make it 4-5-6-7 columns, the url to view it by guests only shows three columns.
https://papaly.com/s...Curation-Start-Pages

This was surprising. However, others show up with more columns, so maybe there is a setting?
https://papaly.com/p...lds-Top-500-Websites

Right now, Zeef is in the lead.  They have a vibrant community of of existing contributors so in some cases (eg. SEO) you can link to multiple interesting pages to start. Saw some suggestion possibilities. Technically, Zeef and Papaly both had their strong points, but Papaly is dormant now internally.

Granted, there are a few different needs.  Your own workspace, corroboration on biz and projects, curating material for a web page or newsletter. Aid to social marketing. Visual bookmarking. There are $ considerations on some.

Which ones have given the best buzz?

Both your wishes can be found in the Papaly- but they are easy to miss or difficult to find in some cases. I'll try to explain. When sharing a papaly board, you can't find the options when viewing your page through that particular given share board url. Doesn't matter if you are the editor or a visitor. But let's try it this way (Using the world's top 500 website board as example):

Leave the shared-board view by  clicking the menu upper right corner and choose 'home.' When you get there scroll down a bit and find the World's top 500 board again in your list. Click on it to open it again, and you'll notice that the view is a little bit different than when we check de page through the shared url. In my case, it has another theming layout. But more important, it also shows more options now if you look close.

When hovering the mouse cursor on category top there is now a extra edit menu visible. From this tiny menu you can use the 'open all url's at once option that you pointed out as option on your wishlist  :)

It's still something that can be extended for even better feedback experience- but there is already an option to leave comments hidden right about (see screens below) here:

I'll get back to that in a bit. First let me show you my puzzle.

Here is a pic of my Papaly home page .. on the Bookmarking one.
And I could share the page we are looking at.  (And I did see the colouring theme possiblility.)

sshot-1.pngBookmarking teamwork

And the url that I get on share board is:
https://papaly.com/a/pyMb
which expands to
https://papaly.com/s...Curation-Start-Pages

The problem is that the format is totally different and some categories are not included.
e.g. Bookmarks Online in the 2nd column.

Whoops. It seems that that one was deleted.  How? No confirmation, for sure.
The top 10 or so entries are in the pic here. 

Let's see if their support is still active (they mention helping with an undelete.)

There is a little weirdness there I admit. Thinking with you, this is how it looks on my screen:

Have you tried playing a bit with the font size settings? See if that changes anything?

Thanks!
Right now, because of:

The weirdness in display
Losing a category
Question of the future of Papaly

And the similar goodness of Zeef (with a stronger community with boards accessible) I am going to hold back on more Papaly research.  Unless I get a good response from Papaly support.

Hi. Google Keep seems another useful service! I'm just starting to use it.
Notes can be tagged and shared to be edited by collaborators.
There is a handy button to send notes to Google Docs documents
