If you take a look at the top right of this site, you’ll notice a set of new icons that will give you quick access to our presence on the web. The six icons above are part of the Social Media Icon Set 1. The set contains PNG icons for 28 of the popular social media and other sites and are available in 16×16, 24×24, 32×32, 48×48 and 64×64 sizes.
It has been observed that previously banned sites don’t appear in the popular lists even now and a good number of new posts that are submitted are landing up in buried lists minutes after they are submitted. Muhammad Saleem tries to seek answers when he asks Has Digg really “unbanned” those banned sites?.
Mike Arrington suggests that Digg Should Sue Wired over the “experiment” conducted by Wired Reporter. I disagree totally, because what she did was prove that Digg can still be gamed, despite Digg’s claims that it can’t. The argument continues…
In a bid to prove that Digg could be gamed, Annalee Newitz of Wired News created a “pointless” blog with absolutely no useful data and pictures and submitted it to digg. She then bought diggs on User/Submitter and managed to get the story on the homepage before it got buried.
I did chronicle my experience about my post Why The Digg Mafia Will Cost Kevin Rose Millions! Though there were traces of the existence of the mafia, no one proved it until Pronet Advertising used a script that worked on top of Digg Spy to reveal previously hidden information of who was burying which posts. Everton decided to blog about the same and the post was submitted to Digg.
