We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the Digg Channel on IFTTT. If Digg is what the Internet is talking about, then IFTTT will only make it easier to get this conversation to you quickly and conveniently. Because talk is cheap and we’ve all got dance competitions to watch.

What Is IFTTT?

IFTTT is a simple service that lets you create powerful connections between your favorite websites with one simple statement: “If This Then That.” Want to send the articles you save from Digg to your Instapaper? Done, thanks to IFTTT.  Need to get the most Dugg video emailed to you every day? We’ve got you covered. Most of your favorite services like Tumblr and Pinboard already have IFTTT channels, so now you can easily send the best Digg content to wherever you consume the Internet.

IFTTT And Digg Reader

Since we launched Digg Reader, we’ve been inundated with requests to include one-click actions that integrate third-party tools like Buffer and Evernote. With today’s launch, you’ll be able to activate a recipe that sends all your Diggs and Saves to your favorite service instantly.

And because we know you’re busy, here are two recipes to help you get started.


IFTTT Recipe: Create Evernote Notes From Saved Posts connects digg to evernote

IFTTT Recipe: Add Your Diggs To Buffer connects digg to buffer

IFTTT And The Digg Homepage

Originally, we were only going to build triggers for stories you’ve Dugg and Saved, but we soon realized that you can do much more with the Digg IFTTT channel. As a result, we’ve created some useful triggers that reduce information overload and give you only the content you want. For example, IFTTT can email you any stories that Digg puts up related to Ukraine. Not into geopolitical conflict? Pick your own keyword in the recipe below. May we suggest “dog”? 

IFTTT Recipe: Get An Email For Every Story/Video Featuring A Keyword connects digg to email

IFTTT Recipe: Send The Most Dugg Story Of The Day To Instapaper connects digg to instapaper

We’ll continue to add more IFTTT triggers and actions in the future and, as always, we’d love to hear your ideas. Tweet at us or email us at

Now, head over to our channel on IFTTT and get started with our popular recipes or create your own. We’d love to see what you come up with, so please share them in the comments below.
