Remembers News.me? Digg has now introduced a new service that lets you know what your friends are finding interesting in real time. Once you log in, you can see results in real time. Real time alerts, mobile notifications, and a scrolling list on your Digg homepage will keep you informed of stories that are going hot. Here is how it works:
The magic ingredient is the way we analyze your Twitter feed to determine the right threshold for your alerts. For example, one component of the algorithm measures the activity around every link in your feed. If you follow tons of accounts that are linking to many hundreds of stories a day, you might get an alert when 5 friends share the same link. But if you follow only a handful of accounts, you might get an alert when just 2 friends share that link.
News.me subscribers are going to get invitations for this service first.
