Welcome to Steemit!
"Come for the rewards, stay for the community!"
Steem Power (SP) is just steem locked up in a way to affect your voting power / payouts. The more you have in SP, the more you get from upvotes and also the more your are able to give out VIA an upvote. It is your POWER on the site. If you put Steem into SP, it takes 13 weeks of equal payments to exit SP back into regular Steem that you can sell on an exchange. Most people put everything into SP if they are long on the platform (like me).
Continue to build up SP. Accumulate, accumulate, accumulate. Key to success.
Steem Dollars (SBD) are "Steem backed dollars" used to help assist with the economics of steem, it creates liquidity and also helps stabilize Steem value. People on here use SBD to pay for services like @randowhale and to tip people above and beyond an upvote for great content or great service to the Steem community.
Steem is just steem. If you have STEEM, you have the actual blockchain asset this entire network is based upon. It's like owning a share in Steem's future.

|1||@good-karma (eSteem)||It is mobile and desktop application for Steem! eSteem is offering some of the unique features (Bookmarking, Post Drafts, Image upload/capture, Personal Gallery, Notifications, many more). I am a huge fan of eSteem app|
|2||@steepshot (Steepshot)||A platform that rewards people for sharing their lifestyle and visual experience. You can use it to share cool pictures you've taken with your mobile phone, curate and comment photos your friends make and never worry that any third party will censor your images.|

Platform for Steem:
|1||@ekitcho (Busy.org)||Busy is a non-profit organisation offering open-source projects on Steem, which aims to bridge the gap between the old economy and a new economy giving value back to people. Their goal is to develop the best tools and strategy to bootstrap this thriving eco-system and to enable billions of people to take part in this revolution. They aim to connect everyone to the best social network platform that can bring value back to users in a peer-to-peer and decentralised way using the power of the Steem blockchain and cryptocurrencies. With Busy.org: Get your value back! and I think Busy.org is to be the "Facebook of Steemit". For busy.org you can also check @busy.org|
|2||@jesta (Chainbb.com)||ChainBB is a discussion forum style interface on the Steem blockchain. It uses many of the same mechanics that steemit.com uses, but presents the information in a much different way. All posts on the Steem blockchain are available via chainBB, just as they are on steemit.com. I think chainbb is a great forum to let people post their own post here. It provides a good platform for those who have similar interest to have discussions in the forum.|
|3||@zappl (Zappl.io)||Zappl claims to be the "Twitter of Steemit" and will create a decentralized micro-blogging platform built into the STEEM blockchaink. I think, It is a great way to give people a simple & easy spin on how SteemIt works. No need to create a very long blog. Just post a few words and give SteemIt a try! Looking really sweet! Hopefully we get to try it before end of this year.|

Tip: If you are used to vote at 100%, make sure you lower your voting slider to 25%. At least if you vote more than 10 times a day.
Not a limited number of votes per day. Instead your voting power will drain faster if you use lots of 100% votes
