Tip’d is an online social networking site where members can share financial advice, including business tips and investment ideas. It’s an online community for financial ideas, tips and news. It uses a blog which means the community can decide which and what information is told to the users of the site. Users can vote and choose the best content by clicking the “Tip It” button; it’s also possible for users to contribute by commenting on the story. Tip’d was founded by two businessmen that were looking for a way to discuss financial and investment tips in a friendly and casual way without having to meet up in person.Show more screenshots »
