Digg is committed to sharing the most interesting — and most talked about — stories on the internet. Using virtual thumbs-ups from Digg users — called, what else? diggs — Facebook shares and tweets for a story, Digg determines how to populate its home page. Digg also operates as an RSS reader, so you can add the feeds you want to read into your Digg account, keeping all of your reading organized in one place. For bloggers, Digg can generate traffic, so make sure your social media buttons let your readers “digg” your work.

Instapaper helps you organize all of those things you truly want to read by collecting them in one place, a place that can be accessed on any of your devices.
