Digg and Reddit

Digg and Reddit

We are getting a lot of requests to add Digg and Reddit to our list of supported networks.

1. Digg. As you may notice old Digg (that allowed anyone to share links) is not here anymore. New Digg it still undergoing development and has no API and no way to submit new links using their own accounts. They don’t even allow their accounts to be created yet. We are monitoring the development, and we may consider adding it as soon as their system allow it in any way.

2. Reddit. Technically we can add reddit, but it’s basically useless. Reddit does not allow you to post your own links (and they force this policy):


What constitutes spam?

If your contribution to reddit consists mostly of submitting links to a site(s) that you own or otherwise benefit from in some way, and additionally if you do not participate in discussion, or reply to peoples questions, regardless of how many upvotes your submissions get, you are a spammer. *****If over 10% of your submissions are your own site/content, you’re almost certainly a spammer.*****

Update: Reddit actually allows autoposting to your own subreddits, so next version will be able to autopost to Reddit

    I note what you say about reddit, but what I actually do is create my own subreddit and post everything there.

    I have control over that subreddit, so all my submissions are posted. Been doing that for a while now.

    Having the ability to autopost to a designated subreddit would still be very useful, notwithstanding your comments.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond anyway.

    I agree with Jonathan, most of us have our own directory on Reddit and it would be easier to have it updated with your plugin.

    Glad I wandered in here and read this Reddit comment :)
    Consider my own subreddit now created - very cool tip, guys. Thanks

    Yes, I'm good to go with Reddit as well. I would like to feed the beast with your awesome plugin.

    I really haven't found Digg or Reddit to be very useful. For me, App.net is way more important.

      You do know that you can auto-post to app.net only if you have $100/year "Developer" account, right?

    I understand the issue with Reddit... Don't completely agree with their approach, personally, but it's a matter of a few bad apples spoiling it for everyone. However, I agree with the point that being able to post to a self subreddit would probably be the way to go: (1) It follows the spirit and letter of Reddits rules, and (2) That way it would be easier for others to cross-post an article they find interesting.
