the problem is the "monopoly" of these social sites and that they are not specialized enough. general blahblah is promoted beyond all measure. almost like "social spam"
to me digg is not useful because it is too general; I know what I want, what I am looking for. I have my own social network in place to get any information I seek. digg is not part of it. I have spent years building my social network, I have spent only months trying to convince myself of the usefulness of digg.
I think I'll cease to use digg and instead try other "social stuff". and speaking of the matter of networking, might I draw your attention to my site
fun aside, unless digg specializes (channels?) more I dont see it still being used in 12 months time.
