Send entries

To send a bookmark or a publication to another BibSonomy user (for example xyz), you can use the system tag send:xyz. The entry will then be tagged with from:<YourUserName> and sent to the user xyz's inbox. To avoid spam in the inbox, the receiving user has to

  • either have added you as a friend
  • or be a member in a group where you are a member, too.

After the entry has been sent successfully, it will be tagged with sent:xyz.
