I need more friends on Digg … maybe

If you’re on Digg, you can find me here.

A few weeks ago, I finally decided to start trying out Digg.  There is a perception out there that Digg isn’t as good as it used to be, since it got away from its tech roots.  I actually find it more interesting now.  It does surface some pretty amazing stuff that I might otherwise miss.

It’s a little difficult to submit items (Scott Karp did right with Publish2 by creating a tool bar), but I’ve been making a submission here and there (and not just my own stuff).  But with only three or four friends, and not much of a reputation, my original submissions get little notice.

Maybe if I had more friends … I don’t know … my participation in Digg is still in the “experiment” stage … so next step is to see if having more friends does anything for me.

  1. I’ve played around with Digg for a while, but for actual link sharing and discovery, I tend to prefer Del.icio.us.
    The Digg mechanism lends itself more to self-promotion, whereas Del.icio.us is more of a discovery tool – along with Stumbleupon…
    More friends can be good,but, for example, my friends activity is in the 500+, which is just too much to even scan through, Twitter style.

  2. I don’t fully understand Digg. It seems to only want stories on TECH, Sports, Stars drama, and politics.

    It doesn’t have a category for regular news stories. I’m not clear on what purpose it serves for a multimedia journalist and social networking.
