AutoSpies takes on Digg Model

Automotive news site, AutoSpies, has relaunched itself making use of the story voting system made famous by Digg.

Since its populatity grew, Digg has inspired many, many copies. Not many of them have been done as well as AutoSpies, who have taken the concept, applied it to a very specific niche and added photo and video voting to the standard news story system.

Thanks to their already significant audience, they have managed to overcome the major pitfall of Digg clones - the lack of participation. If no users are voting, the site will fail. Thankfully this is not the case with AutoSpies.
