I am working with Clibu now.  I brought it up in Chrome and then pin to desktop, pin to taskbar, so it is easy-access. I like the architecture. It starts off being a replacement for Google Keep, clearly though it can also contend into possible usages where Evernote (or others like Rightnote) is involved now. I see you have a forum, I suggest a thread here. Generally, impressed, clean architecture, good features.  You can paste right in, a place where many fail (so I do not need the Web Clilpper, simply Abbyy Screenshot Reader and go go go.

Once it locked up while I was playing, no biggie if it does not happen on regular good-speed usage.

Can I link externally directly to a page?

Like that you have a vibrant forum.

Corkboard - there seems to be three goodies today.

lino.it - (the pic)
padlet ==  (wallwasher)
pin.com == (listhings, the main one I tried years back)

Spaaze, Memonic and Note.ly and NoteApp and some others seem to be dormant or going out or not really up to this level. There are many in the Whiteboard and Collaboration realm.  Few show you really good pictures (like the Padlet Gallery) even on their front page.
 
Big advantage - very portable (like Google Keep, over Windows sticky programs, which struggle for cloud portability.)
You can pin pages to the taskbar, and get to them easily even if on a foreign puter or on an iPad/Android.

And you can get fancy. Here I try to show my puter note page that I did yesterday and this AM I played with pic and video.  Some notes are on that page, which you can increase to full size.

I think Padlet is the worthy alternative. They have a Gallery.

One of the two seems to be becoming my "Visual" note method (complementary to Evernote and Wunderlist.)

Lino.it is quite good on navigating and sharing boards. I would say that the biggest weakness is RTF, that for a single note-box on a corkboard page you have to choose one font color and size.

All three, Linoit, Evernote and Wunderlist are effectively portable, at most needing the url and password from the password manager wherever I am.  Granted, Wunderlist will change (maybe Toodledo?) in some months.  Evernote has two ways (url or Evernote Windows parameter pseudo-url) to go directly to a specific page, which is nice when a program like lino.it wants to allow quick access to detail info.

Anyone using Padlet?

In the past I have tried to capture this visual effect with Pnotes or Notezilla, however now I lean back to native Corkboard.

For auxiliary visual bookmarking, Start.me and Zeef are in the lead.  While Linkman is always the industrial bookmark program that doubles as a research assistant and PIM.

I’ll see about sharing this page so you can go to the url, where notes will be updated, and maybe make complementary pages available.  This note is a bit cryptic to my personal quirks, but nothing is private confidential.  This is all with the free, professional is $3 a month, maybe double with tablet professional which would be likely unneeded.

Ok, try this:
