Unfortunately the majority or redditors don’t even realize saidit is a thing. If we continue to push links onto reddit we can really accelerate the growth of this place

Share on SaidIt then share the SaidIt on Reddit. = Reverse Cowpoke.

Not the best idea right now, admins are actively removing Reddit alternatives in the AMA at least.

What, really?

That should definitely trigger a mass-migration not unlike the one that caused the demise of Digg.

i think we should revisit and question the narrative of what happened to digg. The story had been that they had users secretly plotting to push conservative news to the front and then people found out and left. What I think actually happened was rich corporations bought it out and closed it on purpose because they were consolidating the internet.

That's super obviously what happened. They kowtowed to advertisers, and tried to make more profit, and squeezed out real users in the process. I think pretty much everyone is in agreement that that's what happened. I've literally never heard the first story you said some people believe.

Love that wikipedia article, and the next section too. So many lessons to learn
