No matter whether you love arts, food, traveling or extreme sports you will find yourself perfectly at home on Diddit. Diddit was launched in 2007 by Ludic Labs. The site is cleverly designed with each user having their own wish list, you can then tick the items off as and when you manage to do them. You can also search for other peoples lists so that you can find out about the sorts of things that you might enjoy doing.
Diddit was created by Ludic Labs, a company based in San Mateo California. The site was launched officially in 2007 and has become fairly popular with many people from all around the world sharing their experiences. Ludic Labs became part of Groupon and Diddit.com was shut down on January 31, 2011.
Unlike other social networking sites that cater for an average individual, this site is designed to suit everyone it possibly can. No matter what your hobby is you will find yourself at home on the site. What’s more the site is designed into lists which makes ticking off things that you have done very rewarding. It’s more than just a social networking site as it also helps you to find new locations to visit, or new things to try.
Using Diddit is very easy; you don’t even need to register to use the site. You can browse other people’s lists of activities and even read reviews without needing to register. You only need to register if you want to create your own list, or start leaving comments. When you do sign up and log in then you will be amazed at just how easy it can be.

You only need to enter your email address and then choose a password. When you are registering you have the option of inviting friends by putting in their email addresses. This is however completely optional. To skip inviting friends click the small link at the bottom. You will be sent an email confirming your account however you do not need to click any links. You will automatically be assigned a name which is similar to your email address, if you don’t like this then it’s possible to change it in the settings.
Diddit is still in alpha phase at the moment and so is free. It’s likely that the site will remain free and eventually be supported by adverts.
Although Diddit is still in alpha phase (phase before beta) the application is surprisingly easy to use and stable. The site is already taking off big time and it seems much more than simply a work in progress. Diddit is ideal for anyone that is struggling to find ways to keep themselves entertained, or just wants to meet people with similar interests as themselves.
