We’re on Raptr and we have… Umm… 0 followers.

If you haven’t heard the news yet, Raptr just launched its social news platform earlier this week. I’ve only been using it for a couple of days and I already like it more than Digg, reddit and N4G. Combined. And guess what, the good folks at Raptr was kind enough to make a custom topic page for MMOFront on their news platform. Needless to say, I’ll be submitting my news there from now on (and the good thing is, you can too!). If you’re on Raptr too or is planning to join the social network, be sure to drop by our page and give us a little support!
