So you can create pouches containing links about your favorite football team, cars, artists, gadgets, websites etc. And don't forger that you are not alone! Depending on your settings, the rest of the linkpouch users can submit links that might be relevant to your pouch. If you like their submissions, just add them to your pouch! As time goes by, your pouch keeps expanding thanks to your effort and to the submissions of your linkpouch friends. As a result, you have all your goodies in one place.
