Digg Launches New Bookmark Toolbar Dubbed “DiggBar”

By

The new toolbar from Digg shortens URLs, and let’s you share content directly through Facebook, Twitter, or email. Although it is probably not a replacement for the full Digg experience, it does offer some unique features for sharing content on the go. DiggBar from Kevin Rose on Vimeo.

Here is a list of features from the Digg blog:

  • Digg directly on the destination site: No more awkward toggling between the story page and Digg.
  • Easily share stories: You can now create a shortened Digg URL to share on Twitter, Facebook or via email. You can also type digg.com/ before the URL of any page you’re on to create a short URL.
  • Access additional analytics: See how many times a story has been viewed.
  • View comments while on the story page: Clicking the ‘Comments’ button expands the DiggBar to show the top comment, latest comment, and most controversial without leaving the page.
  • Discover related stories: Clicking the ‘Related’ button expands the DiggBar to highlight similar stories.
  • See more stories from the same source: Clicking the ‘Source’ button expands the DiggBar to show you more Digg stories from that source site.
  • Discover random stories: Click the ‘Random’ button and you’ll be brought to an entirely new, unexpected story.

One potential drawback of the URL shortener however relates to tracking. With other tools like bit.ly, you can track the number of clicks on a link over time. So far, it looks like the short Digg URLs will go untracked.
