Politigg – should it stay or should it go?

Share This

I’ve been experimenting with Politigg for a few days now and am currently in the happy position of dominating most of its pages. But that isn’t really much use if the reason is that no-one else uses it. So what do people think? A bad idea entirely? I should promote a social bookmarking site but not this one? Anyone else willing to experiment?

I’ve added a poll in my sidebar, but what I’d really like from people is comments to this post.

  1. Not going to vote in the poll… However, I will say this: any site that doesn’t have a prominent help/FAQ link on the front page telling you exactly what it does and what the point of it is is not going to pick up lots of users without a MASSIVE push.

    It LOOKS like a non-Facebook version of the Blog Networks App, and if that’s what it is, I’d say use Blog Networks, because Facebook already has a userbase.

  2. I realise that, but I’m asking for feedback!

    Thanks anyway. Have to admit I’ve struggled with Blog Networks though and deleted the app after failing to get anywhere with it. Perhaps I should give it another go.

  3. What’s this facebook blog networks app? I really should know about this.

    I think you should give it a bit more time James. Digg is obviously the be all and end all but I can’t get digg to embed into my posts (curse you blogger), like you have politigg.

  4. James – it’s been a while since I used blogger as a platform but I would have thought you could incorporate Politigg into it quite simply, so long as there is some way of recalling a specific post’s URL into a template.

  5. … back in the day before comments were standard on blogs (it ’twere all fields…) you used to have to do simple mashups like that all the time.
