Yahoo 360 Day One

Yahoo 360 Day One

Yahoo 360 is the biggest social aggregator I have ever seen. Although other social networks can boast higher numbers of membership, Yahoo! 360 brings another dimension to the mix--all the social connections inherent in Yahoo! contact lists, Yahoo! groups and Yahoo! reviews. The program is simplistic to power users yet elegant for the unblogged masses who simply want to see what their friends are doing by looking at their photo albums and reading a few lines of their bantering. Add to the mix the most potent time sink on the internet: Flickr. When Yahoo! bolts Flickr into a 360 site structure that users can modify (like the widgets that allow customisation of My Yahoo!), this will be one of the most visited sites on the internet. And with the friendly, trustworthy Yahoo! search button just below the screen, Yahoo! will return to its place atop the heap of powerful search engines.
