Hot on yesterday's post came a comment to Paid Content from someone naming themselves 'Times Worker'. It may be someone being mischievous, it may be someone with a grievance OR it may be someone telling something close to the truth.
As Google accounts for a record amount of web traffic (6.4%), Digg expires . . . or at least withers away. Digg's demise has been put down to the departure of the founding members on large payouts and the re-design. But I'd question that. The rise of Twitter may also have something to do with it. Digg's social bookmark model seems 'quaint' by comparison with Twitter. I was an early adopter of Digg, but I also confess to having gradually stopped using it in favour of Twitter and other social media over the last couple of years . . . and the thing is, I didn't miss Digg.
