What’s Happening on Digg? New Email and On-site Notifications Help You Keep Track

Digg is expanding the way in which its notifications work, in order to help users keep better track of what’s happening on the site. The update has two components: additional email notification options and the ability to receive on-site notifications.

The email notifications will now give you more information about the people you follow, specifically when they comment or Digg a story you’ve already taken action on. And the on-site notifications will give a little broadcast icon next to your profile image. Clicking on the icon will give you a drop-down with the five most recent notifications.

You might want to adjust your settings if you’re an avid Digg user and/or you have a lot of followers, as the default settings may mean you get a lot of email.

Digg says it is considering some additional updates, including notifications when a story you submit gains a certain number of Diggs or when someone you follow submits a story. But Digg is looking for feedback before making any more changes, which considering some of the dust-up surrounding its recent changes, is probably a good thing.
