All good social media resources will run plenty of accounts through many social networking websites. This allows for a much larger readerbase, as fans can find out about your site through many different means. Well today Inside the Webb finally has a Facebook Fan Page!

The transformation from the blogging era has already begun, as more and more people are learning how to start up their own online press.

When Kevin Rose resumed CEO at Digg, his first act was to remove the Diggbar from submitted stories. This was, as most of us know, just a bad idea in general and was looking at Digg too much as a business and not like the social network and community it is.
Popular social news site Mixx has launched a new YourMixx homepage. The YourMixx section is a customized portion of your homepage which is displayed as soon as you log into the site. It’s different from the front page of other sites such as Digg, as it is customized for each users preferences.

You don’t find many great social news websites these days. You know, the kind that let you vote on stories and the most popular hit the front page? Digg and Reddit are still pretty good, and there are a few nice Pligg sites out there but overall not too many.
Social news has sprung along the web, and with the popularity of web design and graphics blogs sharing links has become commonplace. With popular sites such as DesignFloat and DesignBump, it’s hard to imagine much else. However I have recently found a great-looking Digg clone website at http://digzign.com/.
Although this has been covered by many media blogs, Twitter has indeed released a new home page! I have to say, I’m a big fan of the new design and it definitely allows for a better user experience when first arriving at the site.
