If social media is your thing and you also live for web design and pushing pixels, I am sure you are always looking for a few more sites that can feed your cravings for both. Here are a few social media user-generated content sites that focus on design and web design.
These niche social media sites are great because they focus on the content you are after. The homepage will be filled with specific content rather then a general hodgepodge of every type of category. Some of the sites listed below have huge amounts of traffic, and others are just starting out and look promising.
Design Float is community controlled content for design. This site has grown tremendously since I first started visiting it sometime ago. By becoming part of the Design Float community, you decide what content is submitted and made popular. The community relies on its members to provide relevant content and rate each entry through “Floats” so that the best and most relevant entries float their way to the top.
This site is very similar to Design Float in that it is a social bookmarking website aimed purely at the design and web community. It’s an extremely helpful place to find both great new design content and to submit your own articles for votes.
This site is a user controlled tutorial directory. Pixel Groovy provide the members, not editors, with the control to decide which tutorials are worthy of being published and which are not. This site has a lot of traffic so the content changes frequently. Pixel Groovy’s RSS feed currently has over 1200 subscribers.
This is a site that features articles, resources and tutorials written by designers and developers. All articles featured on this site have been hand-picked by a staff of editors to ensure the highest quality. Simply click on a link to visit the source article or browse this site by tags. The site is updated daily with at least 5-10 new articles.
This is another social media site focusing on the Design Industry. Registered users can submit and vote links related to design industry.
Pixel 2 Life is one of the largest collection of tutorials on the web for web designers, programmers and developers.
These sites all feature design-related content and rely on user-generated input. What sites do you check out for all your design tutorials, articles, inspiration and resource needs?
