Top Social Bookmarking Sites: Digg vs Reddit vs Stumbleupon
Before I give you the official rankings for the top social bookmarking sites, let me just say that Digg is the worst place on the Internet.
If you weren't a member of the cool clique back in high school and wish to relive the rejection horrors of those years, just start Digging. More then likely it will be an even worse experience the second time around.
I joined Digg a few months ago and naively assumed that my fellow Diggsters valued serious news.
Boy was I ever wrong!
The place is worse than Wikipedia.
There have been at least a dozen times when I was the first to submit some important breaking news along the lines of “Iran Sinks Carrier USS Ronald Reagan” (but factual news) and not a second dugg was ever to be seen. Yet members of the Digg in-crowd can post the most lame stories (e.g., Buzzer the Fattest Dog in Rapid City Tips the Scales at 124 lbs!) and within minutes 1500 others have dugg the submission.
I'm afraid that I will never get that place.
If you're into business oriented news, here is the list of top social bookmarking sites.
I find that you can quickly get the valuable news from the top three sites. What I like about them is that they leave the high school style politics out of the selection process. There's actually no need to bother with the others.
