Digg Resorts To Scare Tactics For Inactive Users

By Peter Chubb - Oct 7, 2010

If you were to go back about 2 years, then many of you would have been active Digg users, it now seems that a huge percentage of those have become inactive. Now I am not certain if Dig is getting ready for Halloween, but they have sent out emails, which asks for you to “Resurrect Yourself.”

In the email the social networking site informs inactive users that much has changed since the last time they were active, so why not give them a try again. We have to wonder if this is real, or all part of Halloween as I suggested above.

Why would they use an image of someone trying to climb out of a coffin? Leena Rao from TechCrunch has an issue with the image in the email, saying that it is still morbid even by Halloween standards.

Maybe Digg is going for scare tactics in getting people to come back to what they once loved – but can the social networking service claw itself back from the recent slump?
