Digg 3 Million

A quick update on my previous estimate of Digg users shows that, as predicted, Digg passed the 3 million user mark during March, 2008.

Comparing this estimated data and data from the Digg API shows that around 20% of the 3m accounts are not active. I speculated before that these accounts had been banned for spamming or other activities (that's around 600,000 bad accounts).

Growth appears to be the same as before adding around 150,000 accounts per month.
