[ATTACH=RIGHT]16896[/ATTACH]Welcome to the new [URL="http://digg.com"]Digg[/URL], somewhat different from the old Digg. In version 4 of the popular news aggregator site, rolled out today to users, will the new features manage to renew the site’s popularity, reversing the trend which has dropped them from 30 to 25 million visitors per month this year? Success breed imitators, and in reworking the site, Digg’s drawn major inspiration from highly popular social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. The mechanism that affects a Digg user’s experience in the new version is the use of their social graph. Your “social graph” is your personal network …

According to Darren from Problogger, a great secret to getting front page of Digg is to add a picture of failure itself. What I mean is to add a picture to your post showing a person in some form of grief. Anyone sad or frustrated is fine. These types of Digg posts get on the front page of Digg. If you notice Diggs front page links, you will notice that most if not all have some sort of picture along them while the least popular posts have no pictures at all. The pictures are an easy way to attract attention. …

looking to build a network for link exchange/promotion. The plan is to get a distributed group of reliable people. Then exchange promotion between group members. The group would need to be relatively small and manage-able. Communication would need to be open amongst the group, but kept private and away from the public. The group of people would need to be quick to respond, and promote new links. members of this group would need experience, and established accounts in various social media sites, such as facebook, digg, reditt, stumbleupon, etc. to keep promotion fair amongst the group and to avoid spam, …

The [URL="http://twitter.com/kevinrose/status/22303570291"]post on Twitter late last night[/URL] simply said "changes coming to digg v4" but it was enough to get me excited, mainly because the person posting those five words was none other than Digg founder and head honcho Kevin Rose. [attach]16949[/attach]The [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story306994.html"]launch of Digg version 4[/URL], which as we reported here on DaniWeb was less of a minor tweak and more of a major move towards tackling the growing popularity of Twitter and Facebook, only happened a couple of days ago. But 48 hours is a long time on the Internet, and angry Digg users have been very vocal …

A blogger for liberal sites such as AlterNet and News Junkie Post has [URL="http://blogs.alternet.org/oleoleolson/2010/08/05/massive-censorship-of-digg-uncovered/"]reported [/URL]discovering a conservative group of online users who systematically work together to bury, or vote down, stories on liberal subjects and by posters they believe to be liberal, in order to keep those stories from becoming more widely known. "A group of nearly one hundred conservatives have banded together on a Yahoo Group called Digg Patriots (DP), and a companion site at coRanks to issue bury orders and discuss strategies to censor Digg and other social media websites," reported the blogger, known as [URL="http://blogs.alternet.org/oleoleolson/author/oleoleolson/"]oleoleolson[/URL], who is …

Read about this on mashable, started to check it out but I wanted to post it up here. If you like Digg but do not like hunting for what you want and you like the StumbleUpon model, then DiggStr might be for you. From what I have seen they are not owned or affiliated with Digg or StumbleUpon but they seem to have some sort of agreement with Digg. I guess, check it out and let us know what you think as I will. For the record, the guy on Mashable thinks its great but said he is not ready …

Digg will unleash its new advertising platform which allows users to vote. Depending on the type of vote, the advertiser may spend more money or less money. Would you consider advertising on Digg? Is this system a turnon or turn off?

In an analysis of search engine and social media sites, Facebook was shown to have the most loyal visitors in terms of browsing habits. The study done by the ad network Chitika studied browsing habits of the top SE and SM sites in the month of September. What was really surprising to me is that Digg came in second and Yahoo a close third. Bringing up the rear were Google and Bing (tied for fourth) and Twitter in last. Here is the link to the study on the Chitika website [url]http://chitika.com/research/2009/digg-facebook-loyal-readers/[/url]

I know a common tactic for internet marketers is to submit links to Digg. Now that Digg has incorporated a NoFollow on links on profiles to prevent spams. [url]http://blog.searchenginewatch.com/090902-180759[/url] Do you think this will affect how marketers use Digg?

Mike Maser, Chief Strategy Officer at Digg, has [URL="http://blog.digg.com/?p=928"]confirmed[/URL] that Digg Ads will start rolling out in an early beta format during the next few days. So expect to start seeing sponsored Diggs mixed up with the real stuff, although the adverts will carry a 'sponsored by' title the screenshots suggest that they will not be easily distinguishable from ordinary Diggs if you ask me. Maser is "excited" about the move and says the goal of Digg Ads is to "encourage advertisers to create content as compelling as organic Digg stories, and to give you more control over which ads …

People have been saying that Google is going to buy Digg for the longest time, but now that Digg founder [URL="http://www.pcpro.co.uk/news/205647/google-close-to-digg-deal.html"]Kevin Rose confirms[/URL] he is not against selling up does this mean that GDigg is a real possibility? It seems so, yes, and to the tune of $200 million as that's the figure that is flying around the web grapevine. Rose is quoted as saying "if there ever becomes a partner that can help us achieve our goals, and where two plus two equals 10, then that is something I would consider." OK, that's not exactly a signed in blood …
