Digg was a massive website for sharing news back in 2005. In that boom of the interactive web, it became famous for allowing users to vote for their favorite stories. The most voted would hit the front page, making it a democratically curated news outlet.
If upvoting and downvoting content on the web sounds familiar, it’s because Digg was a predecessor of one of today’s most popular websites: Reddit. So, why does no one knows anything about Digg nowadays, and how did Reddit take over?
