Digg has pulled the wraps off their new site design in their quest to rise up again in the social media ranks.
There was a time when Digg was the place to be seen, but squabbles over preferential treatment for entrenched early Diggers and poor design changes saw them circling the drain. Enter new owners who firmly believe that Digg can be a player again.

Gone are the endless columns of text with number boxes showing how many times a story has been Dug (Digged? Dagged?). Now, it looks like every other content site with large photos, lots of white space, and uneven boxes. I’d call it Pinterest style except that online magazines have been using a variation on this style for awhile now.
