Kim recalls her experiences at being Dugg. She didn’t much care for it, and who can blame her.
While Digg can be interesting and useful, it is just as likely to be the opposite. The online equivalent of being in a room with a bunch of socially-challenged high school nerds. And no one wants that 🙂
This illustrates another risk of link baiting (not saying Kim was link baiting – she wasn’t pursuing that goal). If the aim is to be Dugg, would a client enjoy the possibility of negative fallout? How would this support the marketing goal? Links are nice, but what is the true cost?
BTW – Another thing I loathe about Digg is the voting on comments. Any view that doesn’t support the status quo tends to get Dugg down, so debate becomes impossible. Democratic? Wisdom of crowds?
Bullocks. Juvenile mob mentality.
