With the success of websites like Twitter, Reddit, Digg and so forth many developers have began to adapt social media quality options into their very own websites. Following is the listing of the necessary options of a social media web site:

This can both assist you to find and link contacts who're already member of the social media site or invite contacts who aren't a part of the social media website. Having your customers promote your product is the best way of advertising (and is free as nicely).

The usability of personal messaging lies someplace between emails and real time immediate messaging. It's a easy layer of performance that makes speaking across a website easier, and the best half is that it is already built-in to many CMS scripts.


Digg drives a big portion of their traffic from voting widgets (digs) that people can place on their on web site (tweet for twitter, share this for Facebook etc). By including a widget to your social networking website you might be rising its viral issue. The widget usually derives from a easy piece of JavaScript (or Flash) and can be made using RSS feeds or API calls.

Example: Popular stories in last 24 hours, upcoming tales, well-liked tales in last one yr and so forth. Everyone has totally different perspectives and allowing folks choice in viewing your website is an incentive to maintain them coming back.
