Digg Unveils Curated Section for the Most Popular Videos of the Moment

Digg, the Reddit before Reddit, unveiled their new video service, Digg Video, yesterday.

Digg Video will be an aggregate of the most popular video content from Facebook, Twitter and its own site, making it a curator of the most viral videos of the moment. Digg editors will be doing all the work, however, by actively scouring for that Digg Video content, which will also prevent videos from being featured that were artificially pushed there.

Digg says on their blog post that their Video tag has “consistently garnered more traffic than any other” since their relaunch two summers ago.

The new video section will feature around two dozen different videos a day. Currently it features a video from The Atlantic titled “How Did Airline Fees Get So Outrageous?” along with a mix of videos that feature Neil deGrasse Tyson, musical covers, video game design and two wild bucks fighting in a street – all in all, a mix of science, history, pop culture, candid and fun.

Currently, Digg Video is only available on computer browsers, but Digg is working on updating their iOS and Android apps to include the feature soon.
