Digg adds images, new categories
Now, honestly, we seriously considered skipping this announcement. We've reported several times that Digg was planning on launching a new images section, and now that it's here, well, it's here. So what? But Digg is still probably the biggest name in social news, and when they sneeze, the rest of the industry tends to notice.
Digg has also rolled out several new categories, including a new Lifestyle section with subcategories like Arts & Culture, Autos, Travel, and Food & Drink. In other words, Digg is trying to lose its image as a site for ubernerds only. But Digg faces some stiff competition for that audience from established companies like Reddit, Propeller and StumbleUpon.
