Mixx: When users become the newsroom staff


Mixx is your link to the web content that really matters“.

The user-generated-content site, Mixx, doesn’t have an editor who decides the headlines. Instead, users decide all the editorial items!

Here’s how it works:

  • Only Super Mixxers can tag a story as “Breaking.” If you haven’t achieved Super Mixxer status, just keep Mixxing: add great content, vote and comment—you’ll get there!
  • It takes two to Mixx a Breaking News story. Two Super Mixxers, that is.
  • Only a limited number of stories can be in the Breaking News category at any one time, and only for a limited time.
  • Once a Breaking News story gets enough votes, it will move over to “Popular,” and to any other category with which it was tagged (entertainment, politics, science, etc.).

It looks like more simple rather than the biggest social news digg.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing how it works out!
