We very much value and appreciate the feedback that many users have shared with us about our recent move to the freemium model. As a result, we are introducing some changes to the price/feature matrix.
In particular, the “Free” plan has been enhanced by increasing the number of highlights and enabling limited page cache, screen capture, etc. A cheaper plan, called “Basic”, at $20/year, has been introduced. We’ve also taken special consideration of the needs of educators and those accounts continue to be free and have access to all of the core Diigo functionalties (namely, bookmarking, annotations, lists, and groups), and lots more (special educator features and some advanced functions). For details, please check out the updated product offerings table.
We believe the new plans should help accommodate even greater flexibility for users of various needs. Of course, for users who have already upgraded and desire to switch to a different plan, please contact us. We’ll be happy to assist.
New premium features and more forthcoming
Text view: Along with the new changes mentioned above, we are glad to release another great feature for premium account users: “Text View” that removes the clutter around what you are reading and displays a clean, readable view. To learn more, make sure to check it out!
Upload cached pages through diigolet: “Upload cached pages” feature was previously only available on Diigo FF and IE toolbar. Now this feature is also available in diigolet, so it works on any browsers. When you bookmark a page to Diigo, you can choose to upload the page, even if it is dynamic or hidden behind the password protection. To learn more, check it out!
Note: we will make this feature available in Diigo Chrome extension soon.
In our passion to deliver great value and user experience to our users, Diigo team continues to push the envelope and work hard to develop a whole array of innovative features and products to enhance your productivity for collecting, consuming and collaborating on digital information. Meanwhile, if there are certain premium features that you’d like us to consider, please share your idea with us. Thanks!
We have just implemented a new premium feature, “Text View”. By parsing your cached pages, our system removes the clutter around what you are reading and displays a clean, readable view. For those users who have upgraded to a premium account, you can access this feature by clicking the “Text” link under each bookmark in “My Library”. You can also quickly scroll through your cached pages via the “Text View” reader:
Please note this feature is mainly designed for better readability for long articles that are heavily text-centric (ie. not really applicable for graphic-centric pages, like homepages, etc).
This “Text View” feature will also soon be available in the upcoming Diigo mobile apps as well (*premium account access required.) It will enable simple text view that will fit better in small mobile window, so that you can easily download your unread articles when you have Internet access, then enjoy easier reading of your Diigo “Read Later” webpages on the go. We will soon finish up the integration to iPhone / Android and introduce the enhanced mobile apps. So stay tuned for those new announcements.
Lots more very useful premium features forthcoming. For those advanced users who wish to enjoy pro features, better support, and an ad-free user experience, get your upgrade today!

I want to let you know that your support means a great deal to our young team — they have invested several years of their life on Diigo by now and are happy to see that their hard work is indeed appreciated.

With your support and our team’s dedicated development, I am certain that Diigo will surprise you with more cool features and greater benefits, as we have done in the past. As you have probably sensed, we have great ambition for Diigo!
We have also heard a lot of inputs and even complaints about premium features, pricing etc. Your inputs are important and we are actively listening, as always! In a few days, we will introduce some changes that will incorporate a lot of your inputs. Some great new features will also be introduced. So, stay tuned!
We are pleased to unveil the Premium Accounts for advanced and corporate Diigo users, who wish to enjoy advanced features, better support, and an ad-free user experience.
After considerable thought, we feel comfortable and confident that adopting a free + premium model for Diigo will allow us to serve our users even better: it will give us more resources to keep on making rapid and continuous improvements, and to provide better customer support.
People who wish to use Diigo for free can still enjoy a free feature set which should be adequate for most users. (In fact, Diigo’s free feature set already exceeds the feature set of other popular online bookmarking services.)
With the support of the Diigo user community, Diigo has evolved into an indispensable tool for many. We are passionate about making Diigo the best knowledge sharing and management platform for individuals, work groups, and companies. Going forward, we would like to continue working with our user community to make Diigo the best product it can be, and we appreciate very much your continued support.
