Digg Features Sponsored Posts on Homepage

August 19, 2009

diggWhich Digg does not belong on the homepage? (Hint: It’s the one with only 6 diggs!)

Well I don’t blame the site for trying to make a buck, but this is a little shady–it’s incredibly easy to mistake this sponsored post for a legitimate Digg homepage-worthy news story. Other recent ads from this afternoon include a link sponsored by Intel, and another for EA Games. I’m still going to use Digg just as often, but I’m definitely going to keep an eye out for posts that just don’t seem to fit: “McDonalds Extra Value Meal Burger is Incredible Buy”
