Reddit Diggs Reddit.. Geddit?

The new Digg has had quite the time settling in.

There was always a concern with Digg that stories could be manipulated to reach the front page, that not all stories were organically equal.

That feeling has intensified, and one beneficiary has been fellow news site, Reddit.

At one point yesterday, five of the top ten stories on Digg originated from Reddit. Was it malice, coincidence or are Digg users simply migrating to a competing service to show their displeasure?

Paradoxically, this seems to have intensified now that discussions have formed on both sites about the so-called ‘gaming’ of Digg by Reddit users.

TechCrunch has been covering the story and currently the opinion is that Reddit’s RSS feed is auto-submitting to Google, it’s simply a case of higher-than-usual Reddit traffic.

  1. I started out on Digg then switched to Reddit a couple of years ago. Reddit just seems to be a better community. Digg is getting way too commercial for their own good and they seem to be losing users thanks to V4.
