Digg collapses, Reddit influences a major cable network


Recommended Posts

I don't know if you have heard of the Digg Vs Reddit war, but there have been major events in it lately.

Digg has been in a bit of a slump lately. It has gotten bad enough that Kevin Rose stepped down as Digg's CEO. People are declaring Digg dead, but I think that is premature.

Looks like Reddit's winning the war at this point.
