What is it? It's a social news and bookmarking site, much like Digg, StumbleUpon, del.icio.us. It has the some of the same features for voting, tagging, reviewing, news with an online community.
But what I really liked about it was its focus on SMBs, small to medium sized businesses. I like the other sites. They have a richer feature-set, bigger community, more wow at their site. But...the content is so varied and the audience is so varied, that...it can be distracting, unfocused. bizSugar is focused solely on small to medium-sized business. I like that a lot. And while, to-date, it doesn't have the widgets to add to your browser like those others...that's ok. It's worth the extra click or two.
The other feature I like is their weekly newsletter that shares the Top 10 voted articles for the week. I like that. Make it easy for me to see what's tops on people's minds in the small and medium sized business.
Already, I see results with it. I submitted a post from SmallBiz Survival on Making LinkedIn Work for Small Town Pros. And it's been rated in this week's Top Ten by members of the bizSugar community. ( Click the article's link and you can vote for it, too. )
That's great for everyone. That's what a social community should be built-around: making it great for everyone.
I like it.
bizSugar. You're my social media resource of the week.
