The New Digg v4 has rolled out, encouraging many longtime and newcomers to the news aggregated social networking site – prior to its change – to voice their thoughts about the demise of the Digg that they helped build, and it isn’t pretty.
These Diggers have put hard work and time into Digg with careful selection of a worthy submission. Quickly perfecting the title to every sub and making the description appealing to the Digg community, in hopes that their sometimes hours of searching for that dominant and carefully selected submission would pay off with a front page recognition or a “pop” as the Digg community calls it.
This hardworking detailed Digg community feels as though they have been short-handed with the new launch of Digg v4 since its decision to allow auto-feeds, the demise of power Digger’s and the obliteration of their history on Digg, almost nullifying their existence. This new way of doing things is what Digg is calling a “Social Integration”, allowing publishers and celebrities to take the limelight with little to no “real” contribution that was in existence prior to the change.
How is this Social?
The Digg community is not about to stay quiet. They are forcing their hand in being heard by the CEO of Digg, Kevin Rose, not only submitting this old look of Digg to the New Digg but also by taking to Twitter, tweeting:
Hey @kevinrose this is the community’s reaction to @new_digg — http://bit.ly/ddI597 #diggrevolt
It would be appropriate to say that the people have spoken and it is time that they are heard, after all, what would Digg have been without them? This is something to take into consideration, to listen to and to be respected. If Kevin Rose chooses not to listen to the voices behind the names of so many popped articles that propelled the site into popularity, there might not be a big enough shovel to Digg himself out of this dugg out hole he seems to have gotten himself in.
