My Favorite Social News Sites

There are many social news sites out there. Two of my favorite social news sites are Reddit and Digg, and here is why:

  • Digg:
    Digg is overall a very well designed site. The first aspect I like about Digg is that you can either simply sign up with your Twitter, Facebook, or Google Account. This feature makes it easy to “sync” with your own social media sites. I also like how they have the news categorized by: Technology, Long Reads, Science, Donald Trump, News, Entertainment, Digg Features, and Originals. These categories can easily meet any users needs for what news they would like to read. They also have a both a video and editions section. My last favorite part is the store section. In the Digg store, you can find a variety of good deals from gadgets, giveaways, and online courses. Right now, you can get a VPNSecure: Lifetime Subscription for $39, which is regularly priced at $450. For those of you who are into online courses you can get an Ethical Hacking A to Z Bundle, 8 course bundle, for $39, which typically cost $1273!
  • Reddit:
    Reddit is also a unique site to consider using. Not only can you see the most popular news on the front page, but when you create an account you can subscribe to the subreddits. An example of subreddits would be: cooking, technology, college, photography, web design, etc. Some of my favorite subreddits are: programming, javascript, sysadmin, and techsupport. I like using these subreddits because it lets me see what is current in my own fields as well as issues that other professionals are dealing with in my field.

    I’ve never tried Digg, but I think I’m going to have to now. I absolutely love Reddit though. I agree with you that it is great with /r/programming, or /r/javascript, but my favorite one, is with horry/scary storys. It has some of the best, like the story about “David f****** king” so good.
