Digg is Building a Google Reader Replacement And Asking for Suggestions

digg-logo[1]It didn’t take Digg long after Google Reader wake to announce that they were working on a replacement for the venerable news reader, and today Digg’s plans moved a step forward.

I got an email today from Digg, asking for help. They’re gathering info about how we all use Google Reader, and they put together a survey that asks which Google Reader features I use the most.

It’s a short survey, only 17 questions long, so it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes of your time. I hope you’ll fill it out; Diig says that they’ll use it to “help us hone in on what’s going to matter most to our users”.

And if you’d like to contribute suggestions to Digg, they’re building a mailing list of interested users. Over the next few months Digg will be sending out emails with updates on their progress.


Mailing List



We’ve got lots of ideas for cool, useful features to build, but we’re trying to stay focused on core functionality over the next couple months. With that in mind, we put together a brief survey to help us hone in on what’s going to matter most to our users.

    I hope Digg puts a lot of cool features into their Google Reader replacement. It’s really a chance to get things right, as far as readers are concerned.
