3 reasons why Delicious is better than Digg
Reason #1: Bookmarks are enduring
Though it is true that we keep a web site to return when we have more time; mostly, the users of Delicious view the page as a resource to which they will be able to return again and again. With Digg, the user simply votes, being able to provide, or not, traffic. Digg has a short term effect.
Few days ago we were talking about a new concept that is arising with the creation of social applications Web 2.0. SMO are the initials of Web Social Optimization (Social Media Optimization).

Change This is a portal that publishes “manifests” related to technology and new medias. But not everything is published, that is why the topic must be approve by a committee and voted by the public.
A new phrase starts taking force in the world of Internet marketing. As well as it is common to talk about the importance of the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) in a web life; with the emergence of increasingly dynamical social applications and sites, there arises also the importance of optimizing the web social communication, this optimization is known as SMO (Social Media Optimization).
