There is a new social bookmarking site taking off, and it has nothing to do with technology at all: Reddit. The reddish-colored dots on the top right-hand side of any website are actually “Redditors” who have chosen to promote a particular post by fellow editors. For instance, if a creditor likes the article “Watch Dogs 2,” they will post a link to that post along with a witty comment such as “You can’t kill a man, but you can teach him to kill himself.” Other creditors then see that post and add their own comments to it, making a whole “round” or “contributor” of sorts to the original post. Those who like that post then upvote it and the post moves up in the “ladder of popularity” so to speak.

It’s similar to getting a free ride on a bus that’s going the same direction as you are. Except that instead of being an instant traffic generator, the edited links act like miniature traffic generators for your Internet search engine needs.
