Cody from FroogleGeek: "I wish I could tell you the last time I used Digg however it’s been so long I honestly can’t remember. Digg used to have the ability to flood websites with traffic, and I suppose to some degree it still can. However I stopped using Digg because it often seemed impossible for others to notice what I was digging and ultimately it seemed like a waste of time. After reading about how Digg raised venture capital to stay afloat I get the feeling many others have felt the same way."
News aggregator Digg may no longer be the internet force it once was, but it still offers an interesting and engaging selection of curated news articles and videos across a number of categories, from science and technology to viral Internet memes. Now, the company will bring those articles to its users in messaging and communications applications, beginning with Slack, instead of requiring people to visit Digg’s homepage directly.
Maximum PC: Google Reader was a real game changer when it first launched back in 2005. Although it arrived later than many of its rivals, it quickly proved itself to be the RSS feed reader of choice for many. Available on a wide variety of devices, from PCs, smartphones and even game consoles, the highly configurable Google Reader was the RSS service to use for all the latest news and information.
Techradar-In the wake of Google's announcement that it will close the doors to its Reader this July (RIP) there was a hole just waiting to be filled. And who's stepping up to the plate? Digg, apparently.
