About Marici

Marici ( is a mind map service where topics are automatically linked to each other. Users can communicate with those with similar topics.

Different from existing social bookmarks

Users can save URLs of "favorite pages" with social bookmarks. This data can be viewed in different environments and pages can be retrieved as needed. When clipping, you can enter tags or comments and search for popular pages using information about the number of times pages have been clipped. Social bookmarks only open pages that are known to be popular on a "points" system.

Marici Clip ( incorporates pages into mind maps as topics automatically displaying related information from other users. If a clipped topic is linked to another user's, the related information that belongs to the other user will be displayed. You can use other users' knowledge as your own without awareness of the links between the topics. Consequently, if you add to mind maps while browsing, they will complete without conscious effort and allow you to gradually accumulate information by incorporating things that interest you.

Marici Clip Features

    be opened. Management is easier than existing social bookmarks.
