Digg Now Offers Google IG Module
I’m sure that many of you reading this already have a Gmail account with Google and perhaps a few of you have tried out Google’s IG page. Basically Google IG is a personalized homepage for Google that lets you organize and add content in any fashion that you would want. Digg recently released a Google IG module to add Digg to Google’s IG page. Unfortunately, you can’t vote directly from the Google page, the vote button will take you to the individual article to then cast your vote. The script also suffers from vote lag and the numbers will not accurately reflect new votes. You can set the refresh rate to no refresh, 1 minute, 5 minutes or 10 minutes to keep the stories up to date. You can also select whether you want to display the top stories or your friend’s dugg stories. Let’s face it, you are pretty much putting a customizable RSS feed for Digg on Google IG with this module. It’s nothing to hoot and holler about, but it’s a nice feature for those who use both Digg and Google IG frequently.
