reddit vs digg
So what do you guys usually prefer? I have to say I'm absolutely addicted to reddit and I much prefer it over digg.
I don't like reddit very much. Occasionally I'll go there if I'm really bored and there is nothing on Digg, but a lot of shit on Reddit doesn't even go anywhere and is just a discussion.
I've been frequenting 4chan's /b/ lately which has kept me occupied.
i like digg's categorization etter, it seems easier to read too
I refuse to make 4chan a poll option. lol Although I do browse /b/ on occasion too. I have this greasemonkey script that full-sizes the images upon mouse rollover. It's so much better than having to click each picture.
Anyway, I think digg absolutely sucks. They usually digg the dumbest crap and the comments are [ide28d3d08c]terrible[/ide28d3d08c]. With reddit, I subscribed to the different subreddits pertaining to my interests and I have a fully customized frontpage that I like. The community is a lot more interesting too; they usually have a lot of valuable information to share and to me are a lot funnier. Digg's layout is way too bloated. I love how reddit is fast with pure substance.
I like Digg comments. I like to see how people comment on certain shit. I also like when I comment and I get a lot of diggs on my comment. Makes me feel worth something.
What's that greasemonkey script? Clicking the pic links sucks.
I prefer Digg. Never got used to Reddit's interface.

Hmmm... have you ever looked at reddit comments? IMO they're far better.
On reddit you get karma (the points from your submissions) and comment karma and it counts it in your profile so you can feel even more special than you would on digg. D My karma right now is at 669 and my comment karma is at 549. It's kinda fun to build it but then again it's only an internet achievement... lol. I like how when people reply to you, your orange mailbox lights up and it shows your replies. People are aware when you reply to them so you can have discussion. The community is a lot more connected than digg.
A lot of the time the top submissions on digg were things that were on reddit a few days ago. I still like digg but good lawd the comments are full of dumb. That isn't to say all of reddits comments are perfect though. People just tend to contribute a lot more thought and intelligence to the discussion there.
I also like how it's easy for a regular to submit stuff and have a good chance of it making the front page, unlike on digg where you usually need a team to help boost it into upcoming.
You guys should make a reddit account, customize some subreddits based on your interest, and give it a shot for a few days and see how you like it. Registration takes like 10 seconds and doesn't even require email confirmation.
here ye be -
easy on the 4chan - it desensitizes your mind like crazy. lol
Are you on the reddit marketing team?
haha, I was thinking the same thing to myself.
i've become addicted to 4chan I think.
There's always something new to read and there's always some weird ass shit going on.
^ I thought the battletoads gamestop calls were hilarious. The facebook hacking can be pretty lolworthy too.

lol I was thinking the same thing when I typed that out. For the record, no.
I'm a lurker on both sites...I have a digg account but don't really post/comment/digg anything, and I don't even think I have a reddit account. Both have their annoying fixations (reddit with atheism and Glenn Beck, and digg with cute animals).
I've just started visiting reddit daily, but I tend to agree with Josh; digg is the lowest common denominator, and reddit seems to have more thoughtful/open discussion. That said, a lot of threads are starting to be dominated by that backslapping, meme-driven shite that drove me away from digg.
And while we're on the subject, both of their mobile sites suck balls on the iPhone.
I had a comment with 477 diggs.
Do I win the internet?

No I do. I made the top in all topics before twice. twisted (with the help of my FiPG pals of course ;) )
Keith - there's a Reddit app for the iPhone that I use that I've come to really enjoy. I've got the crappy Edge network though so the links don't load that fast. The Reddit alien stands there, bounces his foot, and checks his watch when the link is taking a while to load. lol
Or maybe you already knew that and that's what you meant by mobile sites... oops
Nah, I meant the m.reddit.com and m.digg.com sites. I'll check it out.

I'm not a member on either but I creep digg all the time, reddit is kinda bleh to me.

Which app is it? There is a free app ("Open Source Reddit") with absolutely deplorable reviews and a $1.99 app with bad reviews.
It's called iReddit -
There's a free one with some (non-intrusive) ads and there's a paid one with no ads. I have the free one.
nice find on that greasmonkey script very nice
