What would you classify Digital Authorship as?

WisTex's picture

What would you call a platform that allows you to discover new content, follow authors, publishers and websites, bookmark links and create lists and share content, which also allows authors and publishers to create profiles linking to content they have created (books, articles, white papers, podcasts, videos, webinars, etc.)?

It's not really a search engine although it will have search, and it's not like Facebook or Twitter, so I'm not sure if it would qualify as a social network. Any suggestions on how to classify the site, or do I just need to come up with my own classification?
