1. Design Bump
John Campbell’s brainchild seems to have done pretty well in just two months of its existence. With a functioning style very similar to the popular Digg site, Design Bump specializes only in articles related to designing. The topics of these articles vary from graffiti to psd templates. The members submit articles which are then voted up or down by users via ‘bumping’. With personalized profile pages for members, plans are afoot for adding showcases, forums and galleries too. This niche social media site is definitely a boon for design-related website owners and bloggers.
This is another wonderful web space for creative people to gather and share design and development related articles. Contributors are challenged to post the best content for only the best are hand-picked for featuring. The readers are thus, automatically ensured of high quality content. All the articles are submitted via RSS feed and are then manually scanned and evaluated. And all this is possible only if the contributor has been accepted by the Design Buzz Network. This ‘quality-barrier’ to entry ensures the best!
