  1. An interesting list there. I guess most of these are relatively new sites, do they get much traffic?

  2. Oh, ps, http://www.hugg.com is a decent environmental news site that might be worth adding to the list.

  3. Hi Steven

    How about http://vot.eti.me it’s DesignBump esq and was started when DB was put up for sale on sitepoint (DB didnt got through with the sael), the difference is when your links have 3 vote’s they are published to twitter and http://twitter.com/votetime currently has 300+ followers.

  4. Adi,
    Hugg is already on the list and was actually featured in the post that’s linked to in the opening paragraph.

    Traffic varies from site-to-site. None of them will send huge amounts of visitors to your site, but they will be targeted visitors.

  5. Sorry, must pay more attention :)

  6. Great post. I submitted it to Reddit.

  7. Again, a fantastic list. Thanks for this it’s invaluable info.

  8. This list is really useful, especially since with so many new sites popping up every day, it’s getting harder and harder to find the good ones. Thanks for sharing these.

  9. Niche social networks are a welcome addition to the web. Because they are more narrowly focused, they are better able to serve the needs of their community.

    The large generic social networks like Facebook and Myspace are great for keeping in touch with friends, but small social networks offer much more – people just like you who share your same passions.

    Qnahealth is a new social network for health related information and support. It’s designed to be friendly and easy to use and is focused around users asking and answering questions and sharing their experiences and knowledge.

    We invite everyone to take a look as they explore their online health information options.

    We welcome bloggers!
