Audio Icon Play audio for this task

Digg is a place for people to discover and share content from anywhere on the web. From the biggest online destinations to the most obscure blog, Digg surfaces the best stuff as voted on by their users. You won’t find editors at Digg — Digg provides a place where people can collectively determine the value of content. Digg is changing the way people consume information online.

I have mentioned in the audio for this week that Digg is geek and American centric. However, over the past few weeks some Australian stories have made the front page of digg, including the Chaser antics and the <tongue in cheek> OPEC forum</tongue in cheek>.

Your Tasks

  1. Check out wikipedia's definition of social bookmarking.
  2. Subscribe to the digg.com RSS feed through Bloglines.
  3. Finally, create a post in your blog telling the world about digg.com. Do you think this would be a great way to read the news in the future?
