At 10e20, we like to keep on top of things happening in the Internet world and we’ve been keenly watching Tipd.com since its beta launch a few weeks ago.Â Today, they officially launch Tip’d 1.0.Â Tip’d is a hot new social media site for financing, investing and business topics.Â Given the current financial state of the world, we think that Tip’d will quickly become your number one choice for learning about all things financial.
To help ensure that Tip’d always features the latest and the best financial news and content, they’ve been building relationships with publishers in the niche.Â These connections have help them get engaging, interesting and factual content.
Based on feedback from their beta launch from community members, they’ve been working feverishly to make changes and improvements.Â Here are just a few of the major ones:
â€¢ They’ve added two new categories that were in high demand: business and entrepreneurship.
â€¢ The â€˜topple’ functionality has been overhauled and is more robust.
â€¢ Stories now show time made popular along with the time submitted.
â€¢ You can subscribe to published stories via email in addition to RSS.
â€¢ They’ve made site navigation simpler and breadcrumbs are implemented site wide.
â€¢ Upcoming stories can be sorted in chronological order as well as by popularity.
â€¢ Duplicated story handling changed.Â Users are redirected to the existing submission (the original to their duplicate).
â€¢ Overall, there are many general usability and functionality fixes as well as improved spam handling.
Those working hard at Tipd.com say they aren’t stopping there.Â They are currently working on creating a private messaging system as well as a Facebook application.Â And, they are working on more tools for power users and publishers.
Tip’d looks like a pretty active site and if you are interested in financial topics, you’ll find some great info.Â It’s somewhat similar to Digg, so if you use Digg at all, you won’t have any trouble navigating around Tip’d.Â Check it out!
