What is this?

Welcome to our FAQ-lite. We have a more in-depth (and up-to-date) FAQ over here. You'll find specific info about Digg Reader, Digg Deeper, managing your account and so much more (you might even some life advice in there, if you dig(g) a little).

What is Digg?

Digg is the best place to find the most interesting and talked about stories and videos on the Internet right now. We live on a website, mobile apps, and a daily email.

What is a digg?

A digg is a thumbs-up — a positive vote — for a story that means you want other people to see it. Any Digg user can digg a story, and every digg helps to inform where that story appears on the Digg homepage and Digg mobile apps.

I keep hearing about Digg editor. What is an editor and what do they want?

We learned, while building News.me at betaworks, that finding really great stories requires a mix of smart algorithms, smart networks and, not least, smart people to parse the two. Digg is what the Internet is talking about right now, so our editors will be watching diggs, Facebook shares, tweets, and other data to determine where a story should sit on the homepage. Facebook shares and tweets are important signals and will be closely monitored, but we care first and foremost about what Digg users have to say — measured, as always, in diggs.

How do I sign up for Digg?

Right now, you can create an account using your Facebook, Twitter, or Google credentials.
