Tip’d: A Social News Site For Business and Financial News
Given the release of updated financial news from around the world every hour, readers are increasingly scouring the web to find the most current stories out there. Tip’d is here to answer your needs by delivering the best business stories recommended by other readers. Tip’d (tipd.com) is a community for financial news, ideas, and tips. Given the important political decisions ahead and the evolving state of the economy, this social news site is perhaps more of a necessity rather than a convenient online news asset.
Social news in the traditional format has too broad a focus to do justice to any specific niche. The political and economic climate, and people’s renewed interest in the finance sector (as well as in personal finance) has spurred the launch of Tip’d, a social news site that focuses specifically on the business and finance vertical. Like Digg, Tip’d believes that it is in the publisher’s best interest to diversify their social news traffic sources and so offers them a focused platform to do so. Tip’d is a great place to start for any industry site that wants to build long-term, targeted traffic.
Similar to Yahoo Buzz, Tip’d offers you the option to ‘tip’ your favorite news stories as a recommendation to other readers. As a publisher, you can also contribute stories upon completing a simple online registration process. The straightforward process is similar to that of other social media sites like Digg. With business specific categories that cover tech, green business, private equity, economy, personal finance and more, this is a one stop destination for readers interested in larger economic issues and micro-finance alike. Check it out now.
