Are you a big fan of the social bookmarking site, Digg? Well if you are, you are in real luck. Digg has teamed up with Facebook to launch a Facebook application that allows users to login on to Digg through Facebook and connect the two accounts.
If you have a ton of friends on Facebook, you can find them on Digg through this easy-to-use application. It makes it much, much easier to share great internet content with your friends.
This is one of the big first steps in the connection between social bookmarking and social networking—allowing for a potentially powerful combination for businesses, blogs, and companies looking to expand social proof and readership.
Even if you don’t fall under one of these categories, this application still can be used by internet users who just want to easily discover great web content. Take a look at the application and check it out for yourself!
More information is available at the Digg blog.
A part-time worker for the Philadelphia Eagles was fired after he posted a status update on his Facebook page.
The worker was apparently upset that the Eagles had allowed safety Brian Dawkins to leave the team via free agency. Dawkins, one of the franchise’s most successful defensive players, signed with the Denver Broncos and joined their secondary.
Dan Leone, the worker who had worked for the Philadelphia Eagles franchise for more than six years, was fired over the phone several days after he had deleted the post/status update from his Facebook.
Did the Eagles act out of line when handling this situation? Leone had worked for the team for an extended period of time—it is truly amazing to see what a simple Facebook post can cost you these days.
