A new Digg.com is on the horizon. I’ve bee hearing about it for a long time and wondering whether I will like it. I’m not sure. I hope Kevin Rose doesn’t change too many factors so as to alienate the original gangsters of Digg. Here’s an invitation to the Digg alpha party. I’m honored. Did you get one? Then maybe I’m not honored :)
You’ve been invited to participate in the new Digg alpha! Some of your friends on Digg are already using it. Check out what they are digging and submitting, and how they can help personalize your Digg experience.
Here are three things you can do to kick-start your Digg v4 alpha experience.
Find and follow your friends, influencers, and news sources you trust! Once you follow these Digg users, we’ll build a custom news homepage for you called “My News.” My News will display news stories to you as dugg by your friends.
Get more followers! Aside from digging great content, one of the best ways to attract new followers is to update your profile. Add a photo and link to your blog, Twitter account, or Facebook profile.
Explore the “My News” and “Top News” pages. My News is the custom news page we build for you based on the people you follow, Top News is the global zeitgeist showing you the most popular stories on Digg.
We’re relying on you to make the site better, so please use the feedback links on the bottom of each page to let us know what you think. You will receive an emailed survey as well. Come back frequently as we’ll be adding features often.
