Last Tuesday, a new social media site launched named Tipd. Social media news sites are sites like Digg and reddit and others that let the users submit and vote on stories, tip them, to choose which get published and which get buried. It’s a great way for you to learn the news the community finds interesting and relevant, rather than the editor of a newspaper. It also helps you find the smaller niche stories that may be overlooked by mainstream media.
So why Tipd instead of the larger more generic social sites? Signal to noise ratio. Digg and reddit and those have a lot of general news that might not specifically be business related. With greater focus comes greater opportunity to find financial news, which is what you are probably looking for anyway.
