Confessions Of A Digg Virgin

I've been spending a bit of time developing my Digg skills. Well at least I thought so. I spotted a news article about a find of Iron Age coins worth a bob or two in Suffolk and thought 'ideal' I'll be the first to Digg this, what a star!

So I did, that was I day five hours ago and today I was checking Digg out and I saw someone else had Dugg the article just over an hour ago.

The difference? I have got 1 Digg, no comments and Imbanksy gets 333 Diggs and 33 comments. So what's the game? Where did I go wrong? Changing the article title, forgetting to 'shout' my friends?

It seems like its Influence rather than Initiative that scores goals on Digg :)

  1. Digg users have their cliques, RR, and it's not easy to get into one. I have learned to just go with the flow when it comes to Digg submissions.

    I'm mostly inactive as a Digger, unless someone sends me a shout and at that, there are Diggers who are extremely abusive with their own self interest toward fame at Digg. [those are the one's I end up quickly dumping.]

    Don't feel badly, RR. It's them and not you. It's just another racket. Digg is one networking site that I can and do live very happily without its egotistic hooplah.

    Cheers, RR!
