Digg

Digg is a social networking website featuring user-submitted news stories. Digg features links from across the Internet, ranging from widely known news sources to obscure blogs. Digg also builds its own list of popular stories that are going viral across the Web.  

To use Digg, users submit stories, and the Digg community votes on which ones they like the best. Every story has a "Digg button," and as the story collects positive votes, the story is cross-pollinated across other channels.

Digg's most popular stories are located in the "Top News" section of the website. "Top News" can feature anything from serious news to fun content. Users can also customize their own news feeds by using "My News" interface, allowing users to select information based on the people they follow, stories they've already read and stories that are trending across the Digg community.

Digg is also organized into categories based on topics such as technology and business, and users can sort content by News, Images and Videos. Users can also vote down stories that they don't like or don't consider relevant using the "Bury" button.

Digg was founded in the fall of 2004 and was launched that December. It gained fast popularity and was one of the 100 most trafficked sites on the internet. Since its redesign in 2010, Digg has seen a decline in users, as many complained that they preferred the old design.
