Digg has turned off the sign up process for the regular Digg, and is instead prompting people who want to sign up to provide an email address for alerts on the new Digg. The site says:
Temporarily, we’re not accepting new Digg accounts. The New Digg is Coming…
Give us your email and you’ll be the first to be notified when you can join the new Digg.
Could the new Digg be coming in just a few hours, or is this a temporary turn off while the back-end is updated? Time will tell, and when we know we will bring you the news.
In the mean time, check out our review of the new Digg, and what it might mean for what comes next in social news.
