The number of active social media users will reach 2.59bn in 2020, up from 1.91bn in 2014. Since it was re-launched in 2012, Digg has capitalized on this growing audience and succeeded in capturing a significant loyal user base through building products that make digital life smoother, simpler and smarter.

Using proprietary data sources, algorithms and a skilled editorial team, Digg cuts through the clutter of the internet to curate a relevant and compelling mix of tech, sports, entertainment, humor and political content for millions of users each month. Although primarily known as a website appealing to men aged 18-44, Digg also sends out a daily newsletter to over 500k active subscribers, receives regular requests from agencies to author new content and create unique videos, and has launched its own chatbot to meet the aim of becoming the dominant platform to discover, share and discuss content in Messenger.

White Star
