Social media sites you should ditch in 2013

StumbleUpon, Digg, and Empire Avenue—among others—aren’t worth the trouble, this blogger says.

Here is my list of social media sites you should ditch:

1. StumbleUpon

I used to love StumbleUpon. It brought traffic to my websites and blogs, but the bounce rate was always high. It took time to learn, use and be social on it. Then, of course, it made some changes and drove less traffic to my sites. I use it weekly now, and will probably use it much less in 2013.

2. Digg

Digg is another site I used to visit faithfully, but I didn’t like when it connected with Facebook. I like to use each social media site for different reasons and audiences. I don’t want to share with my Facebook friends what I would share on Digg.

3. NewsMeBack

NewsMeBack is another site I liked in the beginning, but many users on the site were not related to my niches. I haven’t been on in months.
