Yahoo Launches Buzz

Yahoo has added a Digg 'kind of a' functionality to its site that will help highlight popular news, articles & blog posts. This will be based on Search Patterns & User Votes. The Yahoo Buzz extension counts the 'BuzzScore' for news stories, videos, images and blog posts. A story's Buzz Score is based on your votes, searches, emails, and more. Content with the most votes is then considered for placement on Yahoo.com. "Yahoo Buzz is a good example of how we are continuing to innovate and open up our key starting points to third party publishers, making Yahoo! more social and personally relevant for our half a billion consumers," said Jeff Weiner, executive vice president of Yahoo's Network Division
