Digg v4 is going to be officially launched for public this Friday, but almost a week earlier, we have got our hands on a few invites to giveaway for our readers!
Power ‘diggers’ all around the world are waiting on how this new Digg will effect them and their ways to pop up an article on the Digg front page. I just got an invitation myself to the new Digg 4.0, and I’m still exploring it.
Digg has just announced the availability of their Android app in the Android Market. Almost a week ago, Digg introduced the Digg iPhone app and hinted about releasing the Digg Android app soon.
I just caught the tweet of Kevin Rose saying that the Android app has launched and is available for download.
Twitter is no doubt the most popular micro-blogging site. There are hundreds of Twitter-related services available online (few reviewed here), but this time what I have found is going to be liked by all the Digg users who are on Twitter.
TwiggIt is an automated service that mashes up two of the most popular sites on the Internet, Digg and Twitter, and lets your friends on Twitter know what articles you Digg.
Digg is one of the most popular social-bookmarking services. There you discover and share content by submitting links and stories from anyhwere on the Internet and vote up or down the stories. Voting up is called digging, and voting down is called burying. The most dugg and popular stories get to the front page.
Such sites are usually blocked at work places like schools, offices etc. Here are a few alternate URLs that could be used to access Digg where it is blocked.
Digg today released an official extension for Firefox 3 which adds a toolbar to your Firefox. It works pretty much like StumbleUpon toolbar. With this toolbar, you can know whether the page you are visiting is already submitted to Digg or not.
You can Digg new stories directly from this toolbar and if a story has already been stumbled, it will show you the Digg count and the number of comments on that story.
Recently I saw a similar post on TechZilo, one of the blogs I regularly read, and thought is a very nice idea to socialize with our readers. I’ve always been active on Facebook, Orkut, StumbleUpon, Digg etc.
I’ve never been active on Twitter, but since many people are ‘following’ more and more people on Twitter and it has been one of the fastest growing social networks, I’ve also started using it. I’m looking forward to expanding my friends network, and know my readers better.
