I came across a really interesting website called Scoutle today. It’s an interesting social network facility for bloggers and websites which promises to link you up with other sites that are similar in interest and content. It uses a ranking algorithm to let your “scout” run around the web and be matched up with other “scouts” with similar interested. You’ll see my little scout in my sidebar and I’m hoping add one to all my other blogs.
Here’s a little snippet that explains how it works
The one thing I like about this social network is the emphasis on the quality of your connections rather than the quantity. For example, a technology website will be linked up with a gadget website rather than one that sells term life insurance. It models real life where you have 100s of acquaintances, but only a few friends. And the more people who sign up for it, the better it will get. So what are you waiting for? Sign up now!
