Digg Slows to Half Speed, Serving 3 Front Page Stories Per Hour:
Digg Logo
For over 12 hours, the Digg front page has moved at half speed. Instead of the normal 10-minute interval between updates, stories have remained at the top of the front page for 20 minutes.
Speculation amongst Digg “power users” in one of the Skype chat rooms they frequent is that it could be a test to see if they get more traffic with a more stagnant front page. The recent success of their Facebook App might be compelling them to slow down the front page to send more traffic to individual stories.
Others are speculating that the move by the tech team at Digg to the Washington Post may have something to do with it. Are they checking to see how the site operates with a skeleton crew?
Are they simply making some changes and need a longer interval to keep stability on the site? These and other speculations are exactly that – speculations. It’s anyone’s guess what’s going on at Digg these days.
