What are social bookmarking news sites?

Do you know websites like Digg, Mixx, Reddit, Delicious, Stumbleupon, Oyax, Folkd, Mister-Wong etc? If not, you haven’t seen the social bookmarking news aspect of the internet yet. Most of the given above are Social News sites and a couple of them are Social Bookmarking sites. There are a good number of Social Bookmarking and Social News sites other than whatever were given above. So, What are these Social Bookmarking and Social News sites and what good are those to you?

First let’s talk about Social News sites. Social News websites are those on which you can read and share latest news, interesting things, popular headlines etc. By just creating a (free) account with most of those big and famous social news sites like Digg, Mixx, Reddit etc, you can share interesting news to other members of the sites as well as the whole internet community that visit those sites. Suppose you find some breaking news on your favorite local news website and you want to share it with others, that’s where the Social News websites come in. By just creating an account with those sites, you can submit the news on the site and if other users find it useful or interesting too, then they can vote it up and make it displayed on the front page of the social news sites for all the visitors to know. Social News sites are a great place to share latest news, interesting happenings, funny stuff, Entertainment related stuff etc. I have accounts with most of those big Social News sites, about 7 to 8 accounts on different social news sites.

Now, about Social Bookmarking sites. I bet you know how to bookmark a website in your favorite web browser! If you don’t know that, I can call you a novice internet user without any hesitation. People Bookmark different websites, web pages if they find the articles or sites useful or interesting to them. So that they can later check back that website or news article by accessing the Bookmark in their web browser (Bookmarking shortcut for Firefox browser is “Ctrl+D”). But what if your Bookmarks list is too over-crowded to save any more bookmarks? That’s where the Social Bookmarking sites come in. By just creating a (Free) account with most of those social bookmarking sites not only can you save unlimited bookmarks on your account but also let other users access them. You can even set your bookmarks “Private” so that only you can access them, that way you can hide them from other users. Social Bookmarking sites are a great convenience for most of those internet users who save/ bookmark a lot of news articles/ websites daily. And most of these bookmarking sites let you import or export your bookmarks from one site to another site. Most internet users have accounts on multiple social bookmarking sites. I, for one, have social bookmarking accounts on about 10 sites.
