The new Digg looks more like the front page of a traditional newspaper. A lot of big images dominate the page, short snippets provide a bit of context and the traditional Digg button is now rather subdued.
Content on the new site is interesting. Just scanning the homepage is sure to capture most user’s attention. But it doesn’t seem likely to keep those users on board.
In fact, Facebook and Twitter have clearly won, and the new Digg has admitted that defeat and even embraced it. Front page stories now show more Facebook shares and Tweets than actual Diggs. Users can’t even have a Digg account any more - you sign in via Facebook or Twitter.
Some might say the site is a sorry shadow of its former self.
