Social Networking sites for stock market investment

Filed under: Social Networking — Rohit Aggarwal @ 12:45 am

SocialPicks is a community for stock market investors to share investment ideas, exchange market research, and track peers’ investment performance.

DigStock is a financial website that provides investors access to major financial news as well as user-submitted stories (e.g. stock picks and analysis) and individual stock rankings by investors. With DigStock, users rank stocks and submit stories, which are reviewed (i.e. ranked and tagged) by other investors. Only the most timely, relevant, and valuable stories go to the front page.

Stocktickr is a collaborative web site that promotes information sharing about stocks. We like to call it “social trading”. You add stocks to your stocktickr and assign tags to each stock. Unlike other portfolio trackers on the web, stocktickr captures the current price as you add a stock. When you go back to view the stocks your tracking, you see when you added it, what tags you used, any comments you added, and the price when you added it. is a stock market flavored, social networking web site. was developed from December 2005 to June 2006 and launched in June 2006. Type in the stock symbol in the search bar to view the stock you want to grade. Next, simply click the “Upgrade” link to upgrade the stock, or the “Downgrade” link to downgrade a stock. You may only grade a stock once per day. Registration is required to grade stocks. is both an interactive stocks community and a personalized investment tool. We allow users from all over the world to collaborate and share investing knowledge through blogs, discussion, and virtual trading. attempts to put the collective wisdom of our investment community at your finger tips. By democratizing the process of rating and discussing stocks, our community should have access to a broader range of information, more dynamic content, and more independent perspective – things that should make our decision making process smarter.

FeedTheBull  is closest to Digstock, but it is also releasing a stock trading game where users will be able to compete against each other. FeedTheBull (FTB) is a user driven, social content website. FTB allows the Bull community to submit relevant information and congregates it to one site and then the rest of the community can vote on what they like. The articles/comments/blogs that get the most votes are then promoted to the front page. This is a way to give the power back to the community.

  1. You may also want to check out FeedTheBull. FeedTheBull is closest to Diggstock, but it is also releasing a stock trading game where users will be able to compete against eachother. I would love to discuss it more with you, and I think it would be a great addition to your links.
