Lol…it looks like Yahoo is trying to get a share of the social networking market. Check out Yahoo Buzz, it could create a lot of traffic for your site if you become a publisher.
Check out the About page, sorta very similar to Digg huh? Remember AOL try to do the same thing with Netscape? I think Yahoo would do a little better, possible better than Digg. With all the black market for Diggs, Stumbles, and what not, Yahoo could prove to be the winner in the long run.
- The buzz can be about anything – a great story on a major news site, an extraordinary bit from an obscure site, an intriguing video, or a fantastic blog that shouldn’t be missed.
- Instead of editors, people like you determine the top-rated stories.
- A story is ranked based on its Buzz Score. The score is derived from search term popularity, the number of times a story is emailed from Buzz, and the number of votes a story receives.
- Stories with the highest Buzz Scores may be published on the Yahoo! home page – you can impact what millions will see on Yahoo!

You just like it cuz it has the word buzz in it. 😉
yeah probably, one of my favorite books is Buzz Marketing…hehe
Actually, you are quite right. This is a quite nice blog and at least for now, looks compact and neat. Whether it will grow is something to be seen.
Yahoo will have to work a hell lot on promotion if they want to beat digg on terms of popularity.
