There are several misconceptions people have when it comes to content being promoted on Digg. The three main ones, though, pertain to the lifetime of an upcoming story, the number if Diggs required for a story to be promoted, and the number of friends you should have on the site and how you can benefit from that. Here’s a look at the actual situation.

I was doing some research on online trends earlier today when I stumbled onto something that serves as an excellent example of how a company managed to capitalize on popular trends to increase its sales.
Today on Pronet I added a social stock prediction widget to the sidebar.

Whoever has the highest score at the end of 2 weeks will be given a free video iPod from Jambaz (the creators of the widget).
When I wrote about Dell’s IdeaStorm I mentioned that one of the key factors to their success was the ideas in action section of the site that allows Dell to show its community that the company is not only listening to them but also implementing their recommendations. Today, Dell has taken this a step further.
One of the aspects largely overlooked in Google’s recently unveiled Hot Trends is the prominent link on a topic’s page to ‘Discuss with others’. While the feature is currently flawed, and as such is basically useless, it could signal a move by Google towards unifying their services with a more social approach.
Ads of the World is an online archive of the best and most interesting advertisements from across the world. Today I came across an advertisement on their site that uses four simple pictures to explain to you the difference between marketing, pr, advertising, and branding.
After hearing from Guy Kawasaki this past week and talking to Tim Ferriss about his road to success, I came away learning something incredibly important: how to make detractors believe in your products or services, and how to make them believe in you.
Warner Brothers’ viral campaign for The Dark Knight is going so well that we’ve decided to cover it from start to end. Like any good viral campaign, we’ve only seen the beginning and more pieces are developing, falling in place, and further whetting our appetites for the movie.
Facebook – one of the most popular social networking sites – held an event in San Fransisco today to officially launch the Facebook Platform and announced over 65 developer-partners including Microsoft, Amazon, Washington Post and many more; that have already built applications on the new platform that allows companies to develop and directly integrate applications with the Facebook website and reach an audience of millions of users. The developers and press alike were given unprecedented access.

Here is the first part of a two-part interview. Tim has a lot of interesting insight to share so please read and enjoy.
