That is what comes to mind when you look at the Social Media Social Network at Social News Central. It is a simple Ning site, but it has started off very strong. With 160 members joining since its recent creation and a member list that boasts “heavy hitters” from social media websites like Digg, StumbleUpon, Propeller, and Mixx, Social News Central promises growth and a world of potential.
The network itself has several features. There is “open source blogging” in which members can post their own blog posts to the primary blog. Images can be submitted as well.
Groups can be created and joined, with many of the social media sites already represented. StumbleUpon has the highest current membership with 60 members as of this post. If it involves social news, you can find it here. If you can’t find it, you can start it. That’s the real beauty of the network.
“Go there to vote, come here to hang out”. That’s the tagline for the network, and in its simplicity it speaks volumes. If you ever wanted to discuss ideas, talk with people who are involved with the same (or different) social media sites that you frequent, or if you just wanted to socialize with SM users from across the Web 2.0 spectrum, SNC is the place to go.
