New Digg Relaunched with Tighter Facebook and Twitter Integration

A lot of people wrote Digg off a while back when they launched v3, but v4 was recently relaunched by the new owners, Betaworks with a new emphasis on images. Naturally, a lot of comparisons will be made to Pinterest, since they popularized the vertical tiling style, but it’s definitely a more appealing design than previous iterations.

Another main feature is the tighter integration with Facebook and Twitter. Previously, Digg allowed for signing into the service with Facebook, but with this relaunch, for better or worse, it requires Facebook sign-in now. Along with that, it now checks for signals from both Facebook and Twitter for determining prominence (although diggs will still be measured more heavily).
