Fanpop: kinda like Digg but more fun and better for link building

A new social service based around topics has launched. It's called Fanpop and the early reviews have been very good. As described on their site, "It's a one-stop destination for fans of anything and everything and the place to find fellow devoted fans."

Each topic or "spot" as they call it, is a gateway to content around a specific area of interest. The network of spots is powered by communities of people who are passionate and knowledgeable about those interests rather than by computers or algorithms that can be gamed.

I've joined Fanpop since it offers great link building opportunities whether you want to share a website, blog, article, link or other online content. Just join and submit your item. They have a Business & Money section and a Finding a Job section. I added my Secrets of the Job Hunt blog, my CHIMBY site and a few other related sites. When you add an item you also can tag it with keywords. The site also allows other users to "rate" your submission. To me, Fanpop is a more diverse version of Digg since it allows you to share anything, not just news. It's also super easy to use and post things. So why not become a fan of Fanpop.
