Favorize – Social Network for News & Content Sharing
Ed: Not sure the landing page does this app justice. When I took a look inside there is a real time feed of peoples shared content in a way which is different to what you get from twitter or other social networks.
Not disimilar to Quibb but a nicer interface. Worth a look.
