Visitors "Digg" MCAA Website
By Tim O’Toole
Digg.com is a user-driven, social bookmarking site. In other words, people like you and I submit news stories to Digg that we read online and find fascinating.
Digg was started in 2004 as an experiment and has taken off the past few years to become one of the most popular websites on the web. The website stores articles "dugg" by users and allows them to keep track of important or interesting articles and retrieve them in the future. After the content has been submitted, other users of the site can read the article, and if they find it noteworthy, they too can "digg" the article. As more individuals digg an article, its ranking will rise and thus will be promoted higher throughout the site.
As you may have noticed, the features of Digg have been added to the Mason Contractors Association of America's website, www.masoncontractors.org. If you read an article on our website you enjoy, please take a minute to click the "Digg" button on the page. By digging an article on our site you will help promote the MCAA and www.masoncontractors.org on the Internet, while also providing feedback to MCAA staff on which articles you prefer and would like to see more of.
Several articles have already been "dugg". If an article has 0 Diggs, you will need to submit it. Our website has been setup to automatically fill out all the required information for you. All you will need to do is confirm and submit. You do need to be a registered user of digg.com in order to use this feature. Registration is quick, simple and best of all, free. As mentioned earlier, Digg can be used to bookmark your favorite articles and websites; it is a great tool to use for business and personal reasons as well as helping out MCAA.
Look for more exciting features to be added to the MCAA website in the not too distant future.
