NEWS: Today anybody attempting to use the Diigo social bookmarking site was greeted with either a redirect to a keyword link page (similar to a placeholder site), or was being redirected to an apparent Monster.com affiliate link page. Diigo has been around quite some time, and also absorbed Furl a couple of years back. (UPDATED)
I’ve been posting thousands of stories to the site (when the prior Furl content is included) over the past 5 years or more, and only discovered this from my own bookmark getting the redirect, when going to: http://www.diigo.com/user/neotrope .
Redirects seem to include “Click Check,” “Monster,” and a keyword list site simliar to a non-active domain.
SO, not clear if site/company is “gone” or they got their DNS hacked, or what. I’ll update this post if the site comes back.
UPDATE 1pm PDT: (ref: http://www.diigo.net/about/domain )
Diigo posted the following announcement which I had missed earlier or was unable to find doing search for “Diigo down”:
Dear Diigo users,
We’re terribly sorry to inform you that we’re experiencing domain hijacking, ie. someone gained access to our Yahoo domain registrar account, and illegally hijacked the domain, www.diigo.com. Very soon www.diigo.com may not be accessible to you until this issue is resolved.
But please rest assured that all our servers and user data are NOT compromised, and your data can be alternatively accessed at
Your current Diigo extensions and bookmarklets will not work on diigo.net.
For now, to bookmark to diigo.net, please install this special bookmarklet for diigo.net >> (link not included here -cs)
Again, we’re terribly sorry about any inconvenience this may have brought you. We’re working hard to resolve this. Thanks for your patience and continued support.
For the latest status update, please see our tweets at twitter.com/diigo
The Diigo Team.

As of this morning, apparently the DNS issue has been fixed at the root, but it has not yet propagated to all the name servers (e.g., in California, on Verizon/FIOS – we still see redirects), just as when you move a domain to new server. As of their latest tweet, “It takes some time to propagate all DNS values world wide. You may need to wait a few hours to get http://diigo.com fully accessible.”
