Twitter and Facebook shares added to Digg

It is no secret that Digg has lost some of its spark – not that the social voting site is not any good, it is just the likes of Twitter and Facebook have taken the world by storm. However, Digg aims to step things up a gear by becoming a hub for sharing links on the Internet.

Digg wants to create a personalized home page, making it possible to filter your friend’s activities. This idea will work perfectly for those friends who have both a Twitter and Facebook account; this new service will be coming in the next few weeks.

Mashable’s Pete Cashmore thought that he would take a closer look on this subject as part of his weekly column on CNN. He was asked if this bold plan by Digg could work, he certainly has a view on it.

Cashmore says that Digg has a huge problem from the start, because those who share links on the web today are doing it from one of two sites – Facebook or Twitter. Social Media was pioneered by Digg, but things have moved on, unlike Digg. Visit CNN for a detailed look at what Pete Cashmore has to say on this subject.
