Social networks that are better than facebook

Reddit is an american social network founded in 2005 for the purpose of pushing web content and categorizing it. They call themselves (the front page of web) and they are right. Reddit users (the redditors) are people with high devotion to their lovely website and who will stay nights and days moderating their own subreddits to get you the best of the web.

You can use reddit for surfing over the good web content posted and rated by other users and you can choose your best content to visit according to ratings received by other users.

You can also use reddit for promoting your own blog/website but toy have to be careful as reddit moderators will be always suspicious and they will check your previous activities to make sure you are not promoting specific content. I stopped using it for promoting my website long time ago but I ctill use it for browsing good web content. visit reddit here

5- Stumbleupon

Founded in 2001 and stopped at 2018, stumbleupon was still kick ass though when it got suspended by its moderators. Stumbleupon was a social network for posting web content and websites designed especially for lazy users who want to enjoy a great experience where all you need to do is sign in, specify your interests then stumble. Stumbleupon used to get you stumbled websites inside their own page where you can enjoy it and when you feel done you click stumble again and again to bring new content. Stumbleupon was suspended due to many issues with website owners as they didn't want their content to be shown on stumble when posted by other users and that would make the visitor see content without really visiting the website. This previous issue has raised bounce rates on submitted websites and it greatly affected their traffic gains and organic search credibility. However, stumbleupon was replaced by the new comer (mix) which we consider the righteous heir to stumbleupon.

6- Mix

The new social network and the young successor of stumbleupon has gained great interests in the few months it was on. Mix uses the same technique for submitting articles and other links to the network but it will open links in new windows rather than opening them in their own browser. Mix is fun but not as fun as stumbleupon used to be due to losing the stumble button which was a great advantage of stumbleupon and allowed (lazy browsing) if we may call it. Now you will have to search your own links and get preferences according to your preferred keywords. visit mix here
