Surprisingly quick growth for the rebooted site.
Surprisingly quick growth for the rebooted site.
Digg died. It was reborn. Now it’s growing again for the first time in a long time.
I’m kind of afraid to ask, but when Digg redesigned their site recently, did everyone get Oatmeal as an option on their navigation menu, or am I having breakfast specific delusions again? View Image ›
Reddit seems more conservative than usual. Perhaps the recent migration of Digg users is to blame? View Image ›
Dear entire mainstream media: Please stop referring to reddit as “small.” The team may be small; the site is anything but. View Image ›
This Reddit vs Digg battle is getting a little old if you ask me. View Image ›
Yesterday’s front page of the New Digg site was taken over almost entirely by posts from Reddit. The internet has spoken. Digg is dead. Reddit for life! View Image ›
BOOYAH. View Image ›
Digg’s version of the Fail Whale is an Oregon Trail-style ox and wagon. You’ve probably been seeing a lot of it lately. View Image ›

Some thoughts on Diggergate that rocked social media news yesterday. Was it just another day, or a day that will live in infamy.
I might get banned for saying this, but honestly I think this is what will destroy the new Digg — Indie publishers are going to get screwed and Lamestream Media will dominate even more than it does already.
Either Digg hates new users or we’re about to see the changeover to Digg v4.0. As of this morning, new account registration has closed for Digg. Attempting to create an account yields this message: “The New Digg Is Coming…” View Image ›
I’ve only been a member here since mid June but since I joined Reddit I haven’t even logged into my Digg account. I used to be a farker and still used Fark from time to time when I was a regular Digg user. I really like the community here, did anyone else do the same thing when they joined, and why?
Well this is kinda wacky. Citing a “very credible source,” Digg founder Kevin Rose tweeted that Google is preparing to release “Google Me,” a service intended to go toe-to-toe (face-to-face?) with Facebook. It’s like Google stalking, but official, and thus marginally less creepy!
Digg founder and CEO Kevin Rose will be leaving his popular Diggnation show, we’ve heard from a source. This has not been confirmed by Kevin, but we believe it’s accurate. Revision3, which hosts the show, has not yet returned our request for comment.

The social news aggregator website war has entered into real life. The casualty? Your mom. View Image ›
The recommendation site that trailblazed a new generation of sites saw an abrupt drop in unique visitors in April. A blip or a trend? And what can Kevin Rose do about it, if anything?
OExchange, a simple specification for URL-based content sharing on the Web, was introduced today by a number of online service providers and social networks. The open link-sharing protocol has gained support from Google, Microsoft, LinkedIn, Digg, Instapaper, StumbleUpon, Clearspring Technologies and a handful more.
The AP Stylebook caused a bit of an uproar back in April when they announced, via Twitter that they were officially changing “Web site” to “website.” Well, the new Stylebook is out, and it includes some additional webby updates. Namely, a new “Social Media Guidelines” section.
It was a good run, Digg.com. You certainly had a great idea and funneled plenty of Web traffic to opportunitstic and manipulative publishers. Alas, the run is over. And it’s not coming back.
Great progress has been made in hacking PCs to run OS X, and it is now possible to install Mac OS X without a Mac. Thanks to some great tools put together by some brilliant hackers, it is also much easier and does not involve nearly as much time and effort as was once required.
Google has found its newest empire to crush: Digg. By slyly releasing a new feature that users can add to their iGoogle, called “What’s Popular?” Google is using a Digg-like algorithm to determine “hot” videos, pictures and content across the web. Users can either “pop” things to rank them higher or “de-pop” them to lower them. The only thing they’re missing are the Digg commenters, who truly bring brilliance to every link. Read More ›
Digg’s new DiggBar replaces all outgoing links with a Digg-branded tinyurl, automatically placing a “bar” at the top of the page. Some users love it, some think it’s bull and doesn’t give outgoing traffic the page views they deserve. Now, after John Gruber from Daring Fireball created a script that would block users who were using the bar, the post has received almost 2000 Diggs and hasn’t even hit the front page. Read More ›
Regular Digg users will not be too surprised to learn that 46 percent of the site’s front page is controlled by just 50 websites. Soshable has put together a graph with info about the top 30. Protip for getting your content to the front page of Digg: Be one of these websites. View Image ›
