Some people who spend their time checking up on these things, noticed that Google removed Digg from its search results, which led them to conclude some shady things about the link aggregator. But really, the whole thing wasn't that big of a deal.
This week, Digg and Feedly both surveyed RSS users on the types of social features they’d like to see integrated into a Google Reader replacement. Feedly says it will roll out an updated product in a couple weeks, while Digg’s product launches in June and is likely to be paid.
Here's a little light at the end of a dark Google reader tunnel: Because of Reader's demise the people behind news aggregation site Digg have sped up their own RSS plans to get fans a feed before Google Reader's July 1 death date.
In what's either a sign that the tech bubble just popped or the spectacular failure of a once very popular social network, tech development firm BetaWorks has bought Digg for the bargain basement price of $500,000. No, that's not missing any zeros.
