Digg

A website that aggregates links and brief descriptions to news articles, videos and podcasts, which are voted on by members who "Digg it!" Founded in 2004, submissions are grouped by topic, and links with the most Diggs move to the home page. A "bury" vote can also be cast if the material is deemed inaccurate or dull, and the site may eventually remove it. When members Digg a particular link, it is kept in their profile page.

In 2012, Digg was sold to three entities. New York technology incubator Betaworks acquired the technology; the Washington Post acquired staff, and LinkedIn obtained patents. In 2016, Gannett partnered with Digg, and two years later, advertiser BuySellAds acquired the company. For more information, visit www.digg.com. See Digg Reader.
