Digg Cliques: Friends, Fans and Succeeding on Digg

The friend and fan features are the most overlooked by Digg users, despite being the most valuable asset on the site. Friend features help you dig through the clutter to find up-coming stories without sifting and searching. The biggest power users on Digg exemplify how having large, strong networks of friends and fans can make all the difference on Digg. The numbers speak for themselves. Make friends and improve your Digg reputation. Here is a break down of multiple friend metrics for the top 100 Digg Users…

  1. Friends in the Top 100: How many Top 100 users on Digg have befriended this top user?
  2. Total Friends: How many others has this user befriended?
  3. Total Fans: How many others have befriended this user?
  4. Fan/Friend Ratio: What is the ratio of fans to friends for this user?

Apologies to timac59 and cambrown99. Got your usernames confused in the calculations (timmac99 and cambrown59) so the results were incorrect and, thus, excluded from this analysis.
