This feature is also having some sections which gives you more probability to find out best stories from the web. Here is the introduction about some of the section in newswire:

  • Trending is ordered by stories’ popularity. They calculate the popularity of the submitted stories by looking at how many Diggs, Likes and Tweets it has, who has Dugg it,  the past quality of similar stories, and a handful of other signals.
  • Recent is ordered by when articles are submitted to Digg.

In addition to selecting a sort, there are more options for focusing your exploration:

  • Topic (like Technology or Politics) only shows stories within that category.
  • Media (Images, Videos or Text) filter stories by type of content.
  • Minimum Diggs (say 2, 5 or 25) only shows stories with at least that many Diggs.
  • Maximum Diggs (for example 10 or 50) only shows stories with at most that many Diggs.
