Yesterday, Danny announced the launch of Sphinn, a brand new social site for internet marketing professionals. Features include a forum discussion, a story/comments voting system, and story submission somewhat like Digg. This time, however, you can submit your stories related to SEO without fear of the consequences. :)

I walked through some of the features of Sphinn to show you what it's like. First, the obligatory photo of the homepage:

Sphinn Front Page

It's not *only* about SEO, my friends. :) That top story fits in with the internet marketer's theme of viral marketing.

I then decided to submit a story, but as you can tell, you are able to start a discussion (without an associated URL) too.

Sphinn: Submit a New Story

You should then choose an appropriate eye-catching headline and description:

Sphinn: Submit a New Story (Part 2)

...then you preview it and submit it!

Sphinn: My Recent Submission

All in all, very good stuff. That story was submitted yesterday and is now a hot topic. :)

There's already an impressive list of members and even RSS feeds. Also, the Search Engine Land commenting system will support the logins from this system.

We will begin treating Sphinn as a forum and discussing the best topics from it, so stay tuned. Also, be sure to befriend me and Barry, because we love you. :)

I have had my head buried in the sand for the last few days and I have only just discovered it, the design and functionality is awesome and I like the profile pages in particular. I have added you both as friends.
