Betaworks to build Digg from scratch!

Betaworks has finally announced their plans for their recent acquisition Digg.com.

The company has revealed that they are going to build the service from scratch. It would get a v1 in the coming weeks.

They aim to have the first version out by August 1. This is pretty impressive considering they only have a few weeks to develop something new that is capable of generating enough excitement on the web.

The company highlighted four major points that are being considered during the redevelopment process:

We make it easy to find, read, and share the most interesting and talked about stories on the Internet.
The experience must be fast and thin. Let users go, and they will come back to you. We optimize for return visits, not pageviews per visit.
Build an experience that is native to each device: smart phone, inbox, Web page. Stories must find the user, wherever they are.
Users must be able to share where they and their friends already are — on networks like Facebook, Twitter and email.
