UPDATE: July 19
Michael Harrington of Techcrunch in his post about Netscape’s Digg Copycat site talks about how a small group of Digg contributors are responsible for many of the stories that make it above the fold. His post is interesting to me because it helps me understand how Digg works and how Netscape seems to be getting desperate and is trying to “buy” Digg contributors. AOL, who bought Netscape, continues to “NOT GET IT”.
I’ve been tracking some stories I’ve submitted to Digg to see whether it would be “dugg” and promoted “above the fold”. Well they haven’t! Click here to see the progress of one of my web 2.0 lab experiments using Digg.
