Late to the Game? – January 4, 2007

Yahoo gave a mini face lift to one of its service, My Web 2.0, to allow users to share their index of web pages and links with other users.

Basically, you can join groups that share a common interest, and those groups then share each other’s web links and pages. The content of everyone’s links/pages is searchable by those within the group. Also, users can tag specific content so it is more easily searchable. Finally, users of the groups have options to save pages or links.

Essentially, this is Yahoo’s latest attempt to give people more relevant searches. For example, a group of entrepreneurs could share their own links and pages with another, with the confidence that their searches will deliver only results that are relevant to their interests and approved by their colleagues.

While this service seems pretty cool, isn’t Digg all about this? I’m going to beta-test this, and we’ll see where it ends up. I’ll fill you on the details as it progresses.
