Digg Turns 5 Today

On a lighter note, many of you won’t care, but you know that service that you use every day, called Digg? Well, it turned 5 today.

The social bookmarking website was launched on December 5th, 2004, after a couple of months in development, and since then it’s gone on to become one of the most popular services of its kind.  It allows people to submit and promote popular stories by digging them, or burying them if they’re not so good. The articles with the most diggs get onto the front page.

I mean, on most sites, you always get a “Digg This” button, and maybe nothing else. Digg has been around for longer than a lot of other sites with similar features.

I just joined Digg this year, and I still have to get to grips with it, and have a lot of catching up to do. At the moment I mainly subscribe to a couple of the feeds for popular news pieces.

Interesting article I read after I wrote this:

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
