Social News Central - A Network For Social Media Types

3 Comments 07 February 2008

Social media, social networking, call it what you will but some are saying that it is on the verge of busting wide open in 2008 and becoming totally niche. Where will you be when big news breaks? Tied up voting on some social news site or talking with your friends about the news on Social News Central?

In the wake of the Digg fiasco about two weeks ago, DigiDave, founder of Social News Central, thought to himself, “what
this growing community needed was a space to communicate that didn’t
involve voting”, hence Social News Central was born. DigiDave used Ning, a customizable, online service that allows anyone to create their own social network for free.

“Digg, Reddit, Propeller, StumbleUpon, Mixx, Newsvine…you name it. If you are on these sites, then this is a place for you.”

Evidently, Social News Central already has over 100 members and has only been live for a couple of days.There are all kinds of conversations going on right now in the various groups that have been set up. For example, check out this forum regarding the social news site StumbleUpon:

Social News Central is a fantastic idea and fits right into the message of social media in that it, once again, transforms people into content publishers and not just content voters. The conversations have begun, why don’t join us?

    I also want to make sure that J.D. Rucker gets credit too. The guy in the Stumble Upon group that you highlight above - he deserves accolades in spades for helping set this up. He blogs at
