New social network aims to find news tech pros really care about

From CIO

"When Sandy MacPherson, a former climate change scientist, launched Quibb in 2013, she set out to build a destination where an exclusive community of tech professionals could share and discuss industry-related content.

'I saw how tech professionals were using Twitter as a social RSS where they'd look to experts and thought leaders at other companies to get an understanding of what news and content was interesting,’ she says. ‘But there’s a content problem – there are so many publications and so much content to sift through that it’s hard to see what’s relevant and what matters.’

Quibb is MacPherson’s answer to that problem: a social network for like-minded tech professionals where they can share work-related news, discuss what matters and see what colleagues are reading. ‘People today aren’t necessarily interested in where news comes from; they place a higher value on content that’s endorsed and shared by their peers,’ she says.

Over the past two years, Quibb has grown to include thousands of users from more than 26,000 startups and companies. The site, MacPherson says, already has an active, loyal following, with 50% to 60% logging on weekly.”
