DigFoot even has its own social aspects that allows users to rate and review networks so that other users can best pick what social networks they would like to join. Although I find DigFoot useful, I see it as more of a temporary solution for users to organize their networks together, until we see networks open up.
There is quite a large selection of networks already available and DigFoot claims to be "constantly adding more sites" to their database. There are several that I came across that I have never even heard of, so it seems to be very comprehensive.
Each network has it own listing, which is complete with a description, rating (based out of 5 stars) and reviews from other users about that network. Some of the listings, such as eBay, don't exactly strike me as social networks, but perhaps others see it differently.
By registering, DigFoot users are given the ability to save networks as "bookmarks," which keeps all of your networks contained in one page and remembers sites that you are interested in but will check out later.
This looks like a great tool to find new social networks or remind you of which ones you have joined, but beyond that, there is not much at DigFoot to keep you on the site. I mean, how many social networks could an individual want to join before getting tired of checking updates for each one.
Using their five-star rating system, I would give DigFoot 3 out of 5 stars. I am still wondering about how the name was chosen though.
