Digg partners with Facebook to “connect” users

Facebook announced a new Connect feature, This feature will allow anyone who currently uses Facebook to seamlessly become a Digg user and start sharing and Digging stuff right away.

With this new feature, when you are prompted to log onto Digg, you can use your Facebook account information to sign in. Once you Digg a story, Facebook Connect can publish that in your Facebook Mini-Feed. This allows both Facebook and Digg users to more easily share the content they care about with the people they care about.

Facebook Connect is a key step in Digg’s effort to extend the Digg experience across the social graph. Look out for more upcoming features that further our commitment to the openness and transparency of user data and in providing you more control over your data.
