(1) Public vs. Private: Choose the privacy setting for this bookmark (unchecked = public)
This can be changed by re-bookmarking the same page, or editing it in
"My Bookmarks". You can also set the default privacy setting inthe
toolbar, using Diigo » Options.)
(2) Unread: Check this box to mark a page for later reading.
Find unread pages easily by clicking the "Unread" tab in "My
Bookmarks". Once you click a link, its Unread status will
automatically be converted to Read.
If you want to change a page from "Read" to "Unread", use the More Actions » pull-down menu and select either "Mark as read/unread". You can also select multiple bookmarks to edit this marker at one time.
