Digg has launched a major facelift to accommodate video and podcasting as two new areas of expansion. The San Francisco-based company has been slowly increasing its areas of coverage, having added politics, entertainment and sports to its mix of technology news. They have dabbled in video, but now the company is attempting to become a people-powered curator of online video.
It is the second major social news and discovery service to jump on the video gravy train in as many weeks. StumbleUpon launched StumbleVideos last week. Video aggregation is a hot new category, but it is tough to pick a winner as of now. Get the full story on Digg’s facelift, video plans, and screenshots now on NewTeeVee.com.
