Digg Profile for sale on eBay

Filed as News on July 30, 2006 10:37 pm

Michael Arrington at TechCrunch finds a Top 100 Digg Profile up for sale at eBay:

There are two arguments for the account having value. First, of course, is the fact that Netscape is now paying top Digg users to switch over. Netscape is looking for actual users, not accounts, though, and so there’€™s little chance of this account being turned into a valuable income stream at Netscape. Second, high ranking Digg accounts count more than others when they Digg a story, making that story more likely to go to the home page. The account therefore has value, if Digg doesn’€™t simply turn it off.
