You’re likely thinking, “Why the hell do I want to do this? I’m gonna get a ton of spam!”
Actually, you’re not.
Instead, you are going to make more “Mutual Friends”, and even if you don’t submit articles on digg, this will benefit you. If you make very informative and in-depth replies to submissions, you’re going to meet people and make friends.
Thanks to the new digg “social network” features, users have been able to communicate among themselves instead of on Facebook or other places. Digg doesn’t allow HTML in a shout, so spammy links are not going to be a problem.
Here’s how to do it:
1. Click My Profile at the top of the screen.
2. Press Settings.
3. Select the radio button that says Allow shouts to me from…. Anyone.
4. Press Save.
That’s it, you’re done. Now monitor your profile page for shouts from people who would like to be your friend. The more mutual friends you have, the more diggs you get on comments and submissions.
To prove this works, if you want more mutual friends, send me a shout and I’ll add you as a friend.
