Digg's New Recommendation Engine


I was just screwing around with Digg's recommendation engine, and I like it!

It seems an obvious nod to the functionality of Reddit, and it's a much welcome chance to see what your friends are digging without clicking on the general tab for all their submissions, then clicking on the titles to get to particular Digg entries, then clicking on the titles again to get to the actual stories.

Now all you have to do is click on the engine page and then click on the titles and -- boom -- you're sent to the story in a pop-up window, which is how I like to roll, since I don't have to hit the "back" button to return and show my approval.

Plus, if I'm understanding the system correctly, it's also straight-up 2.0 in that your previous behavior will affect what stories show up.

Attaboy, Digg. Good job.
