Yahoo Buzz Is Quite Delicious

As Stephen Wilson tells us, Yahoo Buzz is now open to everyone. Yahoo Buzz is a way of telling the world about websites that have particularly delighted you and the Buzz Log gives added visibility to What’s hot on Yahoo! Buzz™.

Yahoo Buzz is a site where you can vote in a similar way to Digg, although it is likely that there will be more editorial control.

As Darren Rowse explains, Yahoo Buzz will appeal to a certain type of audience and reader and will therefore present different opportunities to different publishers.

The burgeoning expansion of social media websites is almost head spinning. Another popular website with some similarities is del.icio.us or as it has recently been transformed into delicious.com. The delicious blog provides some explanations:

Oh happy day — the new Delicious is here

The new Delicious
Over the past few days we’ve been transitioning Delicious over to our new platform, quietly starting with RSS feeds and APIs. Today we’re taking the final step and flipping the switch on the new web site: delicious.com.

The new Delicious is just like the old del.icio.us, only faster, easier to learn, and hopefully more delightful to use and to look at.

It’s even more head spinning when you realize that both Yahoo Buzz and delicious are owned by Yahoo. As Michael Porter so wisely said, “Of course strategy is hard – it’s about making tough choices.” If Yahoo cannot make up its mind, how are we, the poor consumers, to do so.

  1. I have been using delicious.com quite often, but never used yahoo buzz. But since you are saying such promising reviews about it, I feel I should give it a try too…

  2. Seems like an interesting new way of social bookmarking. Currently I find Delicious and Digg a good solutions, but a new system is always worth a try.

    Had a quick look, it seems like a reasonable system, although I am unsure whether or not I will be a frequent user.

  3. i used delicious it is great but never heard of yahoo buzz. As i read your post now i am i came to know about its usage and advantage. i will defiantly try it soon. Thanks for the post 🙂

  4. It's so getting to the point where there are too many bookmarking sites to keep up! I know there are tools to help you submit your stuff, but it takes such a long time!! I suppose with this being something to do with Yahoo, it adds a little weight to the argument whether to use it or not.

    Cheers, Dan

  5. After success of all those social media sites, i thought it is enough but it is not. I think there is more to come. I don't know hwy they needed to start such a service in presence of myweb. I think they are almost the one and same thing.

  6. Yahoo buzz is great. I like using it for my business site. Although the traffic is not that great as it is with digg or delicious but I am very optimistic.
