GiveALink is a social bookmarking site where people can donate their bookmarks to the Web community and to science. As an ongoing academic research project, our goal is to analyze bookmark files to build new Web mining techniques including new ways to search, recommend, personalize, and visualize the Web.
We do not use tags, page content, nor links from submitted Web pages. Instead we use the hierarchical structure in individual bookmark files, when present, and collaborative filtering across users to measure semantic similarity of pages. Simply put, if many users bookmark two pages and put them in the same folder, the pages are probably related somehow; if they don't, they're probably less so. We then use this similarity to provide recommendations and a search engine

Even if it is not programmed for our services, a good security tester can work on it so that it could work for our services and than test it. (You should be under contract with the site you are testing)
and the missing link is coming soon
and than the fun can really begin.....
