Yahoo! Buzz is a new way to get your news. We pull in the hottest stories from a broad assortment of web publishers throughout the day, then give you the chance to be an editor by voting (“buzzing”) stories up or down, submitting your own to Buzz, or have a conversation around them by commenting on buzz articles.
For each Yahoo! Buzz story there’s a ranking. The stories ranking is based on votes received, comments on the story, related search terms, and the times it’s been shared to others by email.
The highest ranked Buzz story might be featured on the Yahoo! homepage, the Web’s most popular starting point.
