What is all about Yahoo Buzz ?
Yahoo! Buzz features the most popular stories right now, determined by people around the Web. A story’s Buzz Score is based on your votes, searches, emails, and more.
Stories with the highest Buzz Score may be displayed on the Yahoo! homepage.
Give your favorite stories the buzz!
It looks like a Digg competitor (sort of), more like a news aggregator, users can vote on the stories to give it a buzz. There is no provision for submitting stories by users, but this may change later.
Possibly publishers can submit their content to include in Yahoo buzz, there is a link on Yahoo Buzz page which reads “Publishers: publish your content on Buzz!”, when i click it is going to Yahoo employer login page. Yahoo may allow publishers to submit their “feeds” (URLs of the stories looks like they are updated from feeds).
There is some buzz score on each article, buzz score relates to the position of the story on the page.
When you click the Buzz button it will lead to that story page, with related stories below this story.
