It’s Official – Digg is Dead

I remember a couple of years ago when Digg did their huge redesign … long-time users (myself definitely included) where pissed. The change made the site from the solid aggregator into a social-media wanna-be. Soon, those who disliked the direction Kevin Rose took changed horses to Reddit.

Good Riddance, Digg.
