Since today digg doesn’t allow shouting anymore. What was a “shout” ? If you submitted an article or you find a good article at digg you could share this article with your friends. For sharing the article you sent a “shout” to them. If you wanted to communicate with one of your friends you could sent him a “shout” (message).
Now you nearly have no possibility to communicate with your friends directly over digg. I don’t know why digg stopped this and I think this will make digg a little more uninteresting. The most people have not the time to read all the articles at digg to find the real interesting articles. So it was a big advantage if some of your friends who has nearly the same interests send you a recommendation.
Instead of shouting, digg has two new functions. You can share your articles directly over facebook and twitter. But that makes no sense cause the most people share their articles over the other social media channels anyway.
I hope digg will allow shouting again otherwise I ĺl decide the next days what Iĺl do.
