The site is www.tipd.com and it is a brand new site that provides the social and community aspects of sites like Digg that center around the financial sector. With the global economy facing some extreme challenges www.tipd.com is perfectly positioned to provide a source of news and information, in real time, for financial, business and investment minded people.
After going through the site for awhile, I really think this is a great idea and a service that is sure to be useful to a lot of people. Even though there are a lot of Digg like sites out there, this one comes along at a perfect time and is aimed at tapping into the crowdsourcing philosophy or providing useful financial tips.
In addition, Tipd.com has the backing of Muhammed Saleem, one of the top Diggers on the planet. He definitely knows what makes a social site work and what is required for a successful implementation.
The site has a great look and feel, with easy navigation and cover of all the important areas concerning business and finance:
- Private Equity and VC
- Funds and EFTS
- Personal Finance
- Real Estate
The site hits on all the core areas of interest relevant to financial and investment minded people. It will be fun to watch this one grow, and see how it develops over time.
