Yahoo gets Flickrd

yahoo flickrBusiness 2.0 – The Flickrization of Yahoo. It’s a long article, but makes for interesting reading about how social software is begining to spill over into many aspects of Yahoo!s business.

One point that they make that particuarly resonated with me is the difference between Yahoo! and Google. I’ve always felt that Yahoo! is more ‘human’ than Google – probably because in the good old days Yahoo! was structured around directories, picked by human editors. And now, if you start adding human tags to search (as Yahoo! MyWeb v2.0 does) – it goes back to becoming a much more human window onto search. Yaaaaaaaaaahoo!
