Dallasnews.com starts buzzing
From Jennifer Okamoto, who led the charge on this:
Starting today on dallasnews.com, readers can vote for the most interesting stories of the moment as part of a partnership with Yahoo.
The Dallas Morning News is contributing to Buzz, Yahoo’s newly launched social news site. It pulls feeds from 100 sources, including newspapers, blogs and magazines and ranks their stories based on readers’ votes, searches and forwarded e-mails.
Look for the Yahoo ! Buzz button on each story on the site to vote for an article and see how it ranks among other stories online today. Stories with the highest Buzz score may be displayed on the Yahoo.com home page.
Buzz is similar to another popular recommendation tool, Digg. Users can “Digg” a story on dallasnews.com by clicking the “Bookmark” link.
