DropJack.com is a social content website powered by users like you. Anyone familiar
with the popular Digg.com site will understand how DropJack works. Register as a
member - submit content - vote on content. It's that simple. The more votes (jacks) a
story receives, the better placement it receives on our site.
As a member you can submit your own original content or you can submit stories, articles or news items that you believe are newsworthy and that would be of interest to others.
What else can you do as a DropJack member? Well, you can vote to "Drop" a story if it's content spam, you can post comments, respond to comments and more. And, of course, you can use the same features as non-members - search, bookmark, tell a friend and recommend stories to other social content web sites, like Digg, del.icio.us, Reddit, Yahoo!, Blinklist, etc.
