After months of testing, the new version of the Digg website is up and running, and brings in some major changes to try and bring it back to the top of the social networking cycle that it once stood on top of.
Digg used to one of the pinnacles of the internet. A social link sharing website that spread all the gaming, social, tech, global or any other type of news around to friends who also used the website, or even didn’t. Things have changed since the rise of Facebook, Twitter and other social networking websites. I hardly even see a ‘Digg It?’ button anymore. This is all about to change (hopefully) with the new version of Digg v4.
One of the biggest changes to come from the website is no surprise. They focus more on the social, and as soon as you sign in, you will be asked what users you want to follow by curating a set of lists from your friends on Facebook, Twitter and Google. The site itself, looks quite a lot like its older child.
Another feature that has been upgraded is the link submission, whereas before you had to pre-load an image and description to go with the link. Those times are way behind us, as it now does all the work for us just like Facebook does when you submit a link on someone’s wall.
As the site is new and improved, and a lot of power-users still exist in making the website work, it will take sometime before new users discover Digg, and start Digg’ing it.
