Digg Fights Top Users For Control

Some of the generals in Digg.com’s army of volunteer news readers are in revolt over new abuse controls that could undermine their influence on the site.

In an attempt to defend Digg from gaming and spam, founder Kevin Rose announced the site will be changing its algorithm for weighing and ranking stories.

Digg’s open news model — stories on the site are ranked on popularity among its users — has been criticized recently for being vulnerable to fraud or abuse.

Groups of users can bump news items to the top of the site’s front door by working together in a bloc, submitting and promoting (”digging”) stories together. To break up groups, Rose’s proposed changes will favor news items given positive votes by users who don’t know one another.

“This algorithm update will look at the unique digging diversity of the individuals digging the story,” Rose posted on Digg’s blog. “Users that follow a gaming pattern will have less promotion weight. This doesn’t mean that the story won’t be promoted, it just means that a more diverse pool of individuals will be need to deem the story homepage-worthy.”

***** I personally only visit digg.com a few times a week, or less. I have decided to add the Digg feed to the side of this blog and I may just visit more often, since they seem to be taking care of my only issue.*****
