Google has announced a new experimental lists feature in its Bookmarks tool that enables users to share favourite web sites with others in the form of feature-rich lists.
The new feature follows the announcement that Google will enable users to 'star' searches in order to make relevant web pages easier to find again.
Users can add web sites to a list under a specific heading, and then share it openly for anyone to see or privately with invitation-only users.
Google product manager Christina Chen claimed in a blog post that the new feature will improve information sharing between friends or relevant groups.
"Lists help you discover new web content. For example, once you've created your list Google will algorithmically analyse your list to identify other potentially relevant links," she said.
"Similarly, when we detect that a list is relevant to a specific region, we provide a map of those places and relevant info for each place, such as addresses, hours and reviews."
The feature also generates a thumbnail image of the site before anything is clicked, giving users a chance to be aware of what they are clicking on.
Lists in Google Bookmarks is currently being launched as an experimental feature, and Google is looking for feedback.
