Digg is a site that has become very popular as a crowd-sourced news aggregator. What does this mean? Well, it is Internet democracy at its best. The front page is determined by voters–the articles with the most votes will make it to the front page. Each user can create a thread for people to vote for, and comment on, the article included. These threads move their way towards the top of the site by accruing interest from other voters. One can search for links by the top in the last day, by subjects like gaming or politics, or by the type of links–news, videos, images, etc.

Your profile on Digg will reflect how active you are. The more you vote, the more experienced you become. As a result, your reputation will increase within that network. Digg really is direct democracy in action. This social networking sites allows users with no audience to drive traffic to the links they have posted.
