The term social news refers to websites where users submit and vote on news stories or other links, thus determining which links are presented.

Social news was pioneered by community sites like Slashdot and Fark. It became more popular with the advent of Digg, which combined Delicious and Slashdot's features. Digg and Delicious have inspired a number of other sites, but Reddit actually was not one of them.[1]

More recently, the social news phenomenon has spawned a number of news aggregator sites. These collect and group articles based on growing web interest—presenting users with a reflexive news feed.
