I use vi.sualize.us, Should you?

I use Vi.sualize.us. When ever I come across an image I would like to bookmark for looking at again, I save the image location using vi.sualize.us.
 
Here is how the vi.sualize.us website (http://vi.sualize.us) describes themselves.
 
 
What is vi.sualize.us?
vi.sualize.us is a social bookmarking website for visual contents — vi.sualize.us (read visualize us) allows you to remember your favorite images around the web, and share them with everyone.
 
Sometimes, you are looking through pictures and one of them catches your eye. You know you want to remember it and been able to look at it again in the future, but it's not that easy: downloading to your hard disk is as useless as bookmarking the website in the usual way.
 
This is where vi.sualize.us changes the rules. Within two clicks, you can quote the image reference in your account, and easily look at it whenever you want to, just as your new favorite picture deserves. All without thinking about what computer you stored it in: always online, always available.
 
Anyone can create an account. The bookmarked images will always be available, on any browser, when you log into your account. Wonderful. Now I don't have to capture or copy the images to a file. This saves a lot of time and effort.
 
I save images I like for ideas on what and how to make photographs. Also, I save images that have been postprocessed in ways that I like - again for ideas. Vi.sualize.us also lets me share my collected images with others.
 
Overall, I find vi.sualize.us is a useful tool.
