More on Digg Friends

Hi all -

I just wanted to post real quick to clarify a couple of points on my last blog entry on some of the changes we're making in the near future.

Last week there were several stories accusing some of our users of gaming digg by digging each others' stories. The intention of the post absolutely wasn’t to point a finger at any individual or group. It was intended to openly highlight some of the things we’re doing to keep digg as useful, democratic, and devoid of misuse as possible.

To set the record straight, we appreciate everything our long-established digg users have done to help build this community. There is nothing wrong with digging your friends' stories that you enjoy - in fact we encourage this activity through our friends features. It's our job at digg to ensure that stories are promoted based on a diverse pool of diggers (not just friends) - this is something we have tweaked in the past and will continue to tweak going forward.

Thanks for listening,

Kevin
