If you are searching for a particular web site or subject just type it in the search box in the upper right hand corner. If a particular web site is not listed as a result of a search, Symbaloo allows the user to create their own tile by typing in the URL. Text and tile color can be chosen as well as uploading an image for the tile. Tiles can be as generic or personal as the user desires.
A new webmix can be created for each subject and a user can toggle between them using the tabs. To add a new webmix click on the +.
There is a Share icon in the upper right hand corner. When clicked it gives the creator two options: share with the world or share with friends. Share with the world places your Symbaloo in the Symbaloo Gallery. Share with friends means that the Symbaloo can be sent via email or posted to Facebook, Twitter or Hyves. The application gives you a link to your specific Symbaloo that can be copied and pasted. If you so desire the Symbaloo can be removed from the Gallery. Even when shared it can be continually updated.
