What is Jyte?

I have been exploring and participating on Jyte today and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I recommend you take a look. It has potential for use as a source of traffic to your blog - more on that in the followin post.

Jyte is an acronym for "just you tell 'em";a community based website. The idea is that you make "claims" (a declarative statement) on any topic you wish, have those statements voted on and vote on the claims of others.

The 'claim' takes the form of a headline, an optional description and tagging. You have the option to discuss/comment on any claims.

Features:

  • Make public claims for others to vote on.
  • Vote on claims you agree or disagree with.
  • Add favorite members.
  • Join groups
  • Credit (favorite) other members and be credited yourself
  • Your own account page where you build a profile, track your claims, claims you have voted on and 'creds' you have given and received.
  • Search claims by Timeline, Most Votes, Discussed, Solid, Contested and Recently Commented.
  • Use your openID as your identity
  • The use of tags to categorise your entries and those of others and to build your personal keywords
  • Browser bookmarklets to make claims from a URL or web page text selection.
  • Web site/blog 'Claimroll' to display comments you have made.

The nature of the claims varies widely as do the most voted on. The top five most voted on as of writing this post were:

  1. Firefox is the best browser
  2. George Bush is a great president
  3. Google should support OpenID for Gmail and other services.
  4. I'm sick of hearing the words 'web 2.0'
  5. Pineapple is good on pizza
