5 Reasons Why BumpZee Will Be The Next Digg, But Even Bigger

Digg may have been the best “user driven social content website” out there, but not anymore. BumpZee, a new, innovative and unique community/tool built by Scott Jangro, is better than Digg, on may levels. In fact, BumpZee might be better than Digg, Techmeme, MyBlogLog and many others, combined.

Don’t believe it? Here’s 5 reasons why BumpZee is better, and why BumpZee will blaze a trail as a pioneer of successful web 2.0 mashups.

Note: BumpZee is currently beta testing with only one community focused on the affiliate marketing industry.

#5 Reason BumpZee Is Better Than Digg
BumpZee is more than “bumping”, Digg is not. All you can do on Digg is submit and/or “digg” stories. Sure, BumpZee does that too, called “bumps”, but that’s only a small part of the core functionality in BumpZee. In all reality, that simple functionality is about all there really is to Digg.

BumpZee is so much more. Specifically, BumpZee combines…

  • the functionality of a feed reader (Google Reader)
  • a meme/blog tracker (Techmeme/Technorati)
  • a user content aggregator (Digg)
  • and publisher (Blogger)
  • as well as a community/social network (MyBlogLog)
  • all in one tight little fun package

    #4 Reason BumpZee Is Better Than Digg
    BumpZee is new, so it’s not gamed, Digg is (documented). In BumpZee, the community polices itself. How? Users can not only bump entries they think are worthwhile, they are encouraged to dump ones that are not.

    #3 Reason BumpZee Is Better Than Digg
    BumpZee is professional, Digg is not. Since the BumpZee community is built from extraneous blogs that feed it, and because it polices itself, it is so far absent of massive amounts of unprofessional users looking to yell “lame” or “sucks” to every piece of content that isn’t about Apple or the iPhone or Bill Gates sucking “d00d”!

    Instead, it maintains a useful and friendly tone and provides an helpful experience to each user. Doesn’t matter if they are participants, or just readers. They all can enjoy.

    #2 Reason BumpZee Is Better Than Digg
    BumpZee solves problems for the busy professional. Digg is just a time waster. When you visit BumpZee, you are able to do so many things at once, like track conversations, bump stories, learn about new blogs in your industry, meet new people, and even participate in creating your own blog listing (if you don’t have a blog of your own), and much, much more.

    The ability to do so many things within one place, amongst your niche group of industry peers makes BumpZee an invaluable tool and time saving, problem solving application.

    bz_recent.png#1 Reason BumpZee Is Better Than Digg
    BumpZee has widgets that are actually easy to use, easy to setup and are actually useful. Digg widgets aren’t very robust and are hard to implement, and their core usefullness can be questioned.

    In fact, if you take a deeper look at the BumpZee widget page, you’ll see that there is an actual WordPress plugin design and distributed for download to anyone’s blog, as well as some easy to copy/paste code to get the widget on your blog.

    Summary: BumpZee Is The Future – Mashups Will Win
    You have to hand it to Scott Jangro, the creator of BumpZee. His vision has mashed up the very best pieces of social media and user generated content communities and tools, and put them all together into a fun, and extremely useful utility.

    Once this launches in more verticals besides affiliate marketing, I predict it will become bigger than Digg, and faster. It’s just that good.

    Go ahead, you tell me what’s better?

  • TecheMeme Loves Sam Harrelson’s Cost Per News

    This is blatant proof. Seems that Techmeme.com picked up Sam’s write up about my new plans.

    I didn’t think it was that big of news, but I guess the Techmeme system did! Or, more likely, they value Sam’s Costpernews.com highly, as they should. That’s probably it :)

    Show Me Your Business Card, & I’ll Show You Mine

    Sam tagged me to show off my business card. The problem is that I have 3 business cards at the moment (JimKukral.com, ReveNews & Forge/BlogKits), and they’re all pretty boring. So instead of scanning in those cards and showing them here, I figured I’d just design a new card that encapsulated my primary projects and contact information, specifically built for giving out at trade shows.

    The idea behind this card design is to A.) Show my face so people remember me, B.) Remind the person who I represent and C.) Give the person a reminder and note area to notate what they need to follow up with me about.

    Nothing fancy Nancy. Sorta similar to Shawn’s card, but less busy.

    So now I gotta tag three peeps eh? Ok, I tag the following.

    Eric Marcoullier of Mybloglog

    Wade Tonkin of AffiliateWarrior

    Anita Campbell of Small Business Trends

    You will burn in heck for starting this Harrelson, by the gods!
