Digg Trends: The First 16 Stories (or Victims)

At first when I heard about Digg Trends I thought that the Digg Users looking at the front page would bury most of the stories.  Digg Trends are stories showing a high amount of activity (diggs, comments, shares etc).  With Digg Trends the Digg users have ten minutes to decide if the story should be on the front page or be buried.  Digg also put some snarkiness into it as well, “Failed! Just like nü metal, this trend failed. It won’t be promoted.” And, “Buried When time’s up, we’ll tell you if everyone agreed with you.”

I think the clock is a bit big but otherwise I like it.  The design is a over sized in general but I think thats the idea, to get the Digg users’ attention.  It’s definitely a shock seeing this for the first time because I can’t remember the last major change to the Digg front page design (besides them taking away the avatars).

Only four were buried of the 16 so far.  I really thought it would have been the other way around, but so far so good.  I hope this trend continues.
