Digg's new "Rethought” redesign just went live, and, as expected, it emphasizes simplicity, along with top stories, popular stories and "upcoming" stories. Betaworks -- which recently
acquired the social news pioneer for a half million dollars -- says it's changed the Digg score to take social sharing from Facebook and Twitter into account when ranking stories. Also of note,
“the front page of Digg will also be editorially driven instead of entirely based on a Digg score algorithm,” The Verge reports.
