If you're a member of Digg.com please add me to your Digg friends, then look at my Digg Friends and befriend them. All are Ron Paul supporters. It's time to team up and take this battle to the front of the frontlines:
Here is my plan for using Digg effectively to get Ron Paul's name better known. Digg.com is currently the 89th most visited website on the entire internet, with half of its visitors in the USA:
1.) Join Digg.com if you haven't already done so.
2.) Find the Political Opinion and 2008 Election sections (you have to navigate to the "World & Business" section to find these subsections) and Digg - which means, click the "digg it" link to the left of the headline -all the articles favorable to and positive about Ron Paul.
3.) While you are Digging articles, open them in separate windows (right-click on the headline and choose "Open in new tab") and post comments wherever possible, and reply to any negatives.
4.) View and contribute to the Comments sections of the articles on Digg. You get there by clicking on the upper part of the Digg icon to the left of the article (the part that shows the number of Diggs). Remember to give +/- ratings to existing comments. Some of the comments will already be buried with negative ratings, and you can help keep them buried by clicking "Show Comment" and adding your own Thumbs Down.
THE REALLY IMPORTANT PART:
5.) For each article that you Digg, open the profile of the submitter and look at what they've Dugg. If they are obviously a fan of Ron Paul, add them as your Digg Friend.
PROCEDURE for adding Friends:
(a) The submitter's username is the left-most item under the article headline. Right-click on the username and open the submitter's profile in a new tab.
(b) At the bottom of the square icon to the left of the user's name is a green strip that says "Add Friend". Click that to add the person to your friends.
(c) Click Back to your new Friend's profile, and look at the stories they have Dugg, and Digg any that you like. (Be sure they are good articles if they mention Ron Paul!)
(d) Go to the Friends Tab in your new friend's Digg profile to find more people of like mind, and add them as your own friends. There might be no one there and this means the person isn't using most Digg effectively yet, but there is also a link on their Friends List that will show who befriended that user. You may find people there that you can befriend.
FINAL NOTES - VERY IMPORTANT!
Digg won't let you add too many friends in too short of a time, so go easy! When you get the red warning upon trying to add a friend, hold off for a while - go Digg more articles, comment on them and reply to comments where appropriate, give Thumbs Ups and Thumbs Downs to others' comments, submit new articles, etc. Then go back to adding Friends until Digg makes you wait again. And so on.
After a while you'll start seeing diagonal green marks in the upper left corner of the Digg icons for articles that have been Dugg by the Friends you've added. This makes it easier to pick out good articles to Digg, but don't rely on it entirely - especially not before you have a large group of Digg Friends.
Keep following the above steps as often as you can. Make your list of Digg Friends longer and longer, which will help others looking for like-minded Digg Friends.
If you Digg an article that you later wish you hadn't Dugg, go to your Profile and you'll see the list of all the articles you've Dugg, with an option to UNDIGG them!
And remember that you can also "Bury" articles. Burying is the opposite of Digging and removes one Digg from the total. The Bury link is the thumbs-down icon on right side of the last line under an article's headline.
