Digg gathers the most interesting news and stories on the Internet. A digg is a positive vote for a story. Digg combines the Facebook likes, tweets and diggs into a Digg score. You can submit your own stories or digg the interesting stories you find online.
Digg is often described as a news aggregator, a web application which collects the information from different sources such as blogs, online newspapers and magazines, video podcasts, etc. The first version of the website appeared back in 2004, but the current version of Digg and the website we can see now, with the front page reviews by the editors is the project that went live in 2012.
The main functionality of the website is to enable sharing of content through an easy to use platform. Besides sharing content, people can easily discover new content related to the topic of their interest. The ability to vote and recommend articles helps with the promotion of the articles.
