Digg.com has just announced their new website version incorporating an advanced profiling system allowing users more blogging-like features. This is "the first of many cool new features rolling out this year" according to Digg:
- Digg Images: A dedicated images section (with thumbnails). Still on track to launch in late October.
- Revamped Comments: No more ajax loads, new clean and lightweight design (similar to the old comment system).
- Digg Alerts: Alerts will give you the ability to create customized email alerts - when a story becomes popular, summaries of popular stories on specific topics, and when your friends recommend stories.
- Story Suggest: Dozens of servers crunch the math to provide you with real-time recommendations (stories and friends) based on what you’ve dugg in the past.
