Magda Abu-Fadil, director of the Journalism Training Program at the American University of Beirut, also happens to write for the The Huffington Post. Recently, she posted about our most recent workshop, which took place the week of July 21–25. Not long after she posted, Abu-Fadil got a notice from Digg that her story was rising quickly, and that she should work on getting more people to promote it. (Digg, simply put, is a Web 2.0 site that allows people to vote on stories they like. Stories with more votes than others can be “promoted” to the front page.) I finally signed up for the ranking service, after a long wait, and then asked my networks, through other 2.0 sites—namely, Facebook and Twitter—to Digg the story too. Now, we have 117 Diggs. Not bad. Read the story. If you like it, you can register for Digg and vote for us too.
