Earlier today i went on digg and clicked on upcoming to use the recommendation engine for the first time. I was surprised to see that the top 4 results for upcoming with the “most diggs”. I do happen to digg most of the articles that get to the front page, and MakiMaki does happen to get quite a few articles to the front… so this makes a bit of sense. Not to mention, his webmaster blog DoshDosh is one of my favorite sites for learning about social media and blogging, but how did digg know this?
Just an interesting bit of data on digg’s new recommendation engine captured in a screenshot.
