I have submitted quite a few stories over the past few years. Some of them were my own stories and others were just interesting articles I had found on the net. Maybe some of them were not that interesting, but some were very informative. I guess it’s all about who you know or who you are friends with on Digg, because I have never gotten over a handful of Diggs for any of those stories.
Recently I found a Firefox plugin/add-on for Google Voice. It’s pretty amazing! It finds phone numbers in webpages that you visit and turns those numbers into click to call links. As far as I can tell it’s never been submitted on Digg before, so a few nights ago I submitted it. I check back in tonight and it’s got three Diggs. Three Diggs? What?
Am I a little sore? You are darn right I am. I don’t think Kevin Rose could honestly say the current state of Digg is what he had in mind when he dreamed up this user generated content site.
I will still visit Digg because sometimes I get bored and there are some good stories posted there, but I’ll never submit another story there. It’s pointless, and I am sure thousands of others have already realized that.
By the way, don’t dare digg this post.
