Digg Homepage To Get Location Awareness Eventually

Posted Nov 17, 2009

Kevin Rose was at the Web 2.0 Expo and admitted that he was interested in making the Digg homepage location based. That means that those who are in Chicago will see a different Digg homepage than those in London. But Rose said that the technology isn’t there to offer that option yet. “The noise out there is extreme” said Rose during an interview.

Rose had invested in FourSquare earlier this year which is a location-based mobile application company. That investment indicated his interest in making services more location-based. Rose also recently invested in DailyBooth which is a company that competes against TwitPic.
