LifeHacker Hive Five!

After launching Digsby into public beta on March 20th of last year, one of the first great pieces of publicity we got came from Lifehacker.  They did an article on the Five Best Instant Messengers (“Hive Five”) less than two weeks after we launched and Digsby made the list!

We were very excited to be featured and even more excited when the article made the front page of Digg the next day!  It created a tremendous amount of awareness and gave us our first big push into the spotlight.  We went from 40,000 users to 70,000 users in just 4 days!


Even though we didn’t win the poll, it was a very impressive showing for a two-week old product with just 40,000 users.  Now that we have over 1 million, let’s show them what we’re made of!

Lifehacker is holding another “Hive Five” competition and you can show your support for Digsby by voting here:

It’s all thanks to you, our passionate users! We could not have passed this milestone without you. You’ve been our marketing team from day one and you continue to spread the word about Digsby.

Database Issues

We are having database issues that are causing some people to get an “Authentication Error” on login.  We’re working to fix the problem right now.

While we are working on the issue, Digsby may start in “Local Mode” and load your preferences from the hard drive. We will post an update here when the issue is resolved.

Update (7/7/09 9:45am): Everything is back to normal. Sorry for the temporary inconvenience.
