News is traditionally written and edited by professional writers and editors. But the social version of news is written, or submitted by the users themselves. Then others who like the story can add their voice, often with comments and usually with endorsements of some kind. Slashdot is one of the most successful and long standing social news sites frequented by techies. Newcomer Digg has grown quickly. Users submit stories they find on the Web and others who read the stories “digg” them adding votes until the stories make the front page.
