SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Digg, the once high-flying social news site, relaunched on Wednesday under new ownership after a six-week rebuilding.

The newly launched site for Digg is "turning it back into a startup," the Digg team said in a blog post.

"With this launch, we're taking the first step towards (re)making Digg the best place to find, read and share the most interesting and talked about stories on the Internet - and we want your help."

Online media firm Betaworks said last month that it had acquired the core assets of San Francisco-based Digg and planned to merge them with its service for sharing articles on iPads, iPhones and by email newsletters.
