Digg has introduced a bar above the header section of a website which allows you to digg the article from that blog or website without leaving the page. Here we will talk about each and every option provided on the Digg bar. You have already seen “Stumbleupon Bar”, but the features and options provided here are different than Stumbleupon bar.
Whenever you will open a submitted post from Digg website, it will direct you to a new page with the URL something as “http://digg.com/d1sowk” which is nothing but the same article you clicked on the Digg page with a Digg Bar at the top of the page.
