CNN: Pete Cashmore on the New Digg.com

Pete Cashmore Guest Column at CNN

From Pete Cashmore’s latest guest column at CNN:

“In May 2009, YouTube announced that 20 hours of video content was being uploaded every minute. This week, the video sharing giant revised that statistic to 24 hours per minute. Last month, Twitter announced that users are producing 50 million Tweets per day, up from 35 million per day in 2009. Facebook, meanwhile, reports that users are posting 60 million status updates per day — in October 2009, that number stood at 45 million per day.

“With this content tsunami growing faster than our ability to consume it, Digg seems perfectly positioned to solve the content consumption crisis.”

    Pretty soon your disclosures will require a Venn Diagram. :)
