Digg recently announced a new product called DiggBar. DiggBar makes it easy to digg stories across the web. Digg users can digg stories directly on the destination site. No more awkward toggling between the story page and Digg. It enables you to Digg, read comments, find related content, and share stuff from any page on the Web. And it's presented in a short URL format, making it easy to share in emails, on Twitter, and via other services.
In addition to finding it on all outbound links from Digg, you can generate the DiggBar using any of the following solutions. Check out this short video overview:
The DiggBar allows you to…
- Digg directly on the destination site: No more awkward toggling between the story page and Digg.
