I stumbled across a new (to me) sharing type website today called Digg. Apparently, if you find something interesting on the Web (article, podcast, video, etc.), you can submit it to Digg to see if others “dig it” (boy, there’s a 60’s phrase if there was one), too. It’s a bit of everything and anything: news, movies, politics, and much more. You can evaluate the items sent by others and add comments.
Here is the description from the site: http://digg.com/
What is Digg?
Digg is a place for people to discover and share content from anywhere on the web. From the biggest online destinations to the most obscure blog, Digg surfaces the best stuff as voted on by our users. You won’t find editors at Digg — we’re here to provide a place where people can collectively determine the value of content and we’re changing the way people consume information online.
How do we do this? Everything on Digg — from news to videos to images to Podcasts — is submitted by our community (that would be you). Once something is submitted, other people see it and Digg what they like best. If your submission rocks and receives enough Diggs, it is promoted to the front page for the millions of our visitors to see.
And it doesn’t stop there. Because Digg is all about sharing and discovery, there’s a conversation that happens around the content. We’re here to promote that conversation and provide tools for our community to discuss the topics that they’re passionate about. By looking at information through the lens of the collective community on Digg, you’ll always find something interesting and unique. We’re committed to giving every piece of content on the web an equal shot at being the next big thing.
