Digg Version 4 Demonstration Video

The video below, gives a look at new “version 4 of Digg,” designed to get publishers start focusing on Digg again. As Rose says in an interview, only the top headlines on Digg – 100 or so stories a day – actually get much traffic. Users will only see links to popular stories that their friends are promoting, and there’s no clutter from status updates and other content.

Key changes: All Digg users will go through an ‘onboarding process’ that asks them to follow friends, tastemakers and publishers; Users will be asked to import their social graphs from Facebook, Twitter, etc.; Their home page will now show links from people & publishers you follow, called “My News”; Hugely popular stories on Digg will still be shown on Top News channel; If a user diggs a story, all followers of that user will then see it in their feed; Publishers will now be able to auto-publish their content via RSS feeds to Digg, eliminating the need for someone to add a story for the first time; process for adding a story manually is also much simpler – a user simply pastes URL into Digg and an image, title and summary are automatically generated.
