I don't get the new look and function. I'll post my tiny rant at the end of this post. See this blog post first.
Digg the once popular social media news website is under a rebranding from its new owners Betaworks after being acquired last month for $500,000. Yesterday they launched Digg V1 which apparently started from square one with “fresh code” approximately six weeks ago. The team of 10 from ReThink Digg really did start from scratch and lost most of the value they paid. You can’t even call it a social news site anymore as most of the social aspects are gone

Yesterday someone submited a blog post and I approved it (it's past midnight so it's yesterday)... I decided to submit it to Digg since the new design was out. Didn't understand what the heck to do when I submitted it and dunno if the blog post is actually on Digg. Didn't bother to dig deeper as Digg doesn't feel like a social site no more. I've gotten so used to the old way of doing things on there.
Could it take a long time for the new Digg owners to get this social site done right?
What are you thoughts on the new look and it's features...etc?
