Meet The New Digg – Digg Alpha

July 14, 2010

Welcome indeed, to the brand new digg! The new digg “Alpha” as they call it. Digg.com is a place for finding new, fresh and mostly funny blog posts, videos, pictures, on the web! The only down fall of the site was the lacking features. There wasn’t a follow/following system. There wasn’t a like or dislike system. The list goes on and on! But now, after month’s and month’s of developing, the Digg team has kinda made the new design live. You can now ask to be invited to the new digg, cleverly named “Digg Alpha”.

The new site has many, many, MANY new features that It lacked before. So, lets just dive right into it!

  1. The first thing that really blew my mind was the sweet new homepage. Its now has a “Submit Link” right there in your face on almost every page.
  2. The second thing that caught my eye was the “Recent Activity” panel on the left hand side. This allows you to see what your friends are up to.
  3. Then, the third thing you you automatically see when you arrive at the page, is the words “Following” and “Followers” . Yes, this is just like twitter! Not a copy, but just a very huge feature!
  4. Then after seeing the follow and following, you see a “Top News” section. Almost like the Trending Topics, except its the Trending Diggs. 😀
  5. Now, the moment that you all have been waiting for… Fifth! The fifth and last thing that I really enjoyed was the like buttons, or as Digg calls them: the “Digg” buttons! These are on every link submitted and every comment so you can see the good comments first, instead of reading the trolls comments first!

Well, that basically wraps it up! In my opinion, I LOVE THE NEW DIGG!! But its yours that counts! So please fill out the poll below and leave a comment! I have also compiled some screenshots that you guys may want to see of the new digg. Click here to download the zip file!  Thanks guys! You ROCK!!

    Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.
    If you know of any please share. Thank you!
