Since I started interning at Yahoo! last month, I’ve become a bit of a news junkie. When Maria Sharapova appeared at Wimbledon in a scandalous tuxedo, I was the first of my friends to know. Ditto for “American Idol” Ruben Studdard‘s marriage and Morgan Tsvangirai’s withdrawal from the Zimbabwe elections.
I fear this addiction is going to get worse now that I have the Yahoo! Buzz module on my My Yahoo! page…
Buzz pulls together the Web’s hottest stories, determined by people like you (and me). Stories are ranked based on the number of votes they receive, among other things. The new Buzz module gives you these stories right on your My Yahoo! page. Add the Yahoo! Buzz module now!
Disagree with the current list of top stories? No worries, just head over to Yahoo! Buzz and start voting. Love stories about the upcoming Olympics? Buzz ‘em up. Hate stories about Britney? Buzz ‘em down.
If you want to add a more human element to your collection of news articles, consider adding a module or two. There are several different Buzz modules you can add to your My Yahoo! page, each with their own topic. Here are some of my favorites:
