Digg.com, rated by the site Alexa as one of the top 100 most trafficked sites on the internet, is all set to push its frontiers into other areas. Digg, for those who are unfamiliar, is a social content site that permits registered users to submit content on a wide array of topics ranging from technology to science. The users then rate and comment on the submitted content and if the story receives enough “diggs” then it could possibly boost the content ultimately onto the front page. Well, considering the amount of traffic it received on any given day; this is one of the best marketing tools out there to receive massive publicity.
The popular news portal, launched by Kevin Rose in 2004, is all set to upload social networking capabilities onto their site, which translates to users receiving their very own profile page to interact with one another with greater efficiency. Previously, users interacted by commenting on content. As of today, eager users can contact one another through their personal profile as well as leave messages.
The world is definitely more open to Digg users now than ever before and this can definitely have both positive and negative implications to users and the site. On one side, users can collaborate together to rank their content up with more diggs or they can bring down content as well. However, that action will probably get their account banned. On the flip side, users can connect more effectively with one another and create a community that drives more traffic to Digg much likeFacebook, the popular social networking site.
