Listed as one of the best social network sites of 2011, Digg.com serves as a premiere pop culture website that caters to a diversity of interests, backgrounds and experiences.
Essentially, Digg.com operates as a convenient place for people to discover and share content from anywhere on the web. From the biggest online destinations to the most obscure blog, Digg offers the best resources for fun, knowledge and much more.
“We’re here to provide tools for our community to discover content, discuss the topics that they’re passionate about, connect with like-minded people, and make some new friends in the process. 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,” wrote Digg.com officials on the Web site.
This up and coming social network features every outlet imaginable, including advertising, blogging, publishing and even employment. With lists of popular stories being shared across the web every story has a Digg button and along with that button is the number of people from the Digg community who have said that they like or “dig” that story.
Soon the amount of “diggs” a story collects over time can effect how that story spreads and gains more popularity as it spreads more.
Digg.com mentions that “tens of thousands of stories from a wide variety of interests and sources are shared on Digg everyday.The most popular stories on of the moment are promoted to the Top News section of the web site. Top News is the global zeitgeist of Digg. It’s a snapshot of the most interesting, relevant, quirky, and fun content that the web has to offer.”
Its safe to say that social cyber junkies everywhere will surely “digg” this promising, new virtual network.
