Slinkset – like Reddit? Your Own Social News Network

www.slinkset.com This is an interesting site I recently came across, thanks to Twine that is. Are you familiar with the site Reddit? One of the unique features of Reddit is the ability for users to vote up or down specific items. Slinkset lets you build your own social news site, with the same functionality. I’ve just created my own Slinkset site and imported RSS feeds for this site as well as my writing/research site www.kazpro.com. Slinkset seems to take awhile to populate with the feed items, so my review is still pending.

Another feature I like about Slinkset is the ability to have your Slinkset url forward to your own domain name.  Visitors can vote items on your Slinkset page up or down, causing the item to shift it’s place on the page (very similar to Reddit). You can even allow visitors to post their own content, thus turning your site into a social network. This could be a very useful platform for specific niches – I may have to play around with it some more.

While Slinkset seems to be a relatively new site, I think I’ll be monitoring it for awhile. A lot of new social sites are evolving lately, it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.

UPDATE:

In the time it took me to write this post, my feeds at my Slinkset site started showing up. I’ll give a thumbs up then for speed, since that’s relatively quick to populate. Although I read on their help forums that feeds are only refreshed every few hours.
