They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery – if that is true then Digg must be feeling very flattered right about now!
The site features the ability to ‘vote’ for stories and a constantly updating, dynamic topbar featuring the most popular stories.
This site already has far more traffic than Digg ever had. As Mike Arrington said:
The fact that AOL is launching the new service under the Netscape brand instead of building out a new property says how serious they are about the space. According to statistics provided by AOL, Netscape serves a whopping 811 million monthly page views – far more than Digg today.
This will now introduce all those users to Digg-like technologies which can only be good for educating users on the possibilities of the live web.
