Digg is a social media website that allows users to recommend links to news stories, posts and photos. The links are voted on by the community based on whether the content is interesting, important or unusual. The number of votes that each posted item receives changes the position in which the link is displayed. Posting to Digg requires a Facebook or Twitter account.

Facebook and Twitter

Launch your Web browser and navigate to the Digg website (link in Resources).

Click "Submit a Link" from the menu at the top right of the Digg homepage and a new page will load.

Open a new browser window or a new tab and navigate to the news story or post that you want to add to the Digg website. Select and copy the website URL; then switch back to the Digg website.

Paste the website URL in the "Submit a link to Digg" input field.

Click "Sign in with Facebook" or "Sign in with Twitter" and log in if prompted to do so. Click "Allow." Your link will post to Digg as well as to your chosen social media network.


Digg features trending articles on the Web as well as in a smartphone app.

The links you post to Digg will also appear on your social media page.

You can disable auto-posting to your social media page from the Settings drop-down menu, which appears under your name on the Digg homepage.
