Comparing the top Social News sites

Great comparison between Digg, Netscape, Reddit and Newsvine.

Its amazing to see how the dominant site, Digg, is miles ahead of their competitors. Some of the best things about Digg are the visualisation tools from Digg Labs. There is the Digg Swarm that has linked bubbles displaying the popularity and relationship between Diggers – and the Digg Stack that is a more linear, sequential display of the article/story popularity.

The big next step for them is to regionalise their sites – look out ITWeb when Digg South Africa becomes available.
