HOW IT WORKS

The buddy system

Digg

Users organize into groups to vote up one other’s stories.

Geek baiting

Digg, Reddit,
Del.icio.us

Companies publish geek-friendly articles that have nothing to do with
their business. The goal: to drive traffic to an ad-filled web site.

Network for hire

Digg

Clients hire scamming firms to promote their articles. These outfits recruit
networks of users willing to sell their votes.

Pump-and-chump

eBay

Retailers earn a good reputation selling inexpensive products, then
defraud customers on more upscale items.

Clearly, rules of interaction and conduct raise active and widespread discussion
among the industry experts and case examples show that these issues are well thought
out by the leading companies. Thus Proposition 4b – that the need to set up these
rules is critical in planning crowdsourcing activities – is secured as valid and relevant
element in the FLIRT model.
