New Features for Digg

Kevin Rose discusses upcoming additions.
September 26, 2007

At this morning’s Emerging Technologies Conference, Digg founder Kevin Rose discussed a few of the features soon to be added to the popular news aggregation site. Digg launched enhanced functions for user profiles late last week and plans to add more features in late October.

The additions will include a suggestion service, which will recommend content to users based on what they’ve dugg in the past. Rose says that it will enhance people’s ability to find trustworthy content amid the mass available on the Web. Digg also plans to add an image section, expanding from its current coverage of news, video, and podcasts. Rose also hinted that Digg is working on predictive features that could model at an early stage whether a story is likely to become popular, based on the patterns of people interacting around it.
