Social discovery is now a leading trend in social media and social networking.  Users join specific communities based on an interest, and discover new people, places and things. Social discovery sites are experiencing higher levels of growth than traditional social networking models.
Some examples of social discovery sites include Pinterest, TheFancy, Yelp, Foursquare, Tumblr, Highlight and Weotta.  
Social discovery sites are also better positioned to promote products and services.  Through the mirroring the conditions of human search, users find new products and services that their social connections like and recommend.  This suggests a higher level of performance in terms of conversion and sales, something a traditional social network generally lacks.
