A guide to Digg.

I think I don't have to introduce you to Digg but you may use this interesting information about it.

Digg was started as an experiment in October 2004 by Kevin Rose. The concept was to give people the chance to "dig" user submitted tech-related stories in order to get the most popular stuff in front of an audience that was interested in seeing the latest and greatest on the Internet.

By December 5th 2004, the site was officially launched. After running for approximately a year, the site surpassed 100,000 users and as a result they were able to raise $2.8 million to help take the service to the next level. Shortly thereafter, grew to over 500,000 users and over 8.5 million unique visitors per month.

Digg is a site that will help you avoid the process of digging and instead, get exactly what others have dug up so you can see some of the great sites/stories/things out there on the Internet.

There are two main things that you can do on Digg. The first is to submit stories that you think the community will like and the second is to digg stories that you like.
