Yahoo Buzz has added a bunch of new features that are aimed at making the site more social and integrated to rest of Yahoo properties specifically Yahoo Profiles. But one unintentional or intentional (depending upon where you come from) consequence of the changes are that the site now bears much more similarity to its competitor, Digg.

Some of the changes include:

  • Stories that people buzz could now be seen in the new “Y! Updates” section on the Buzz homepage
  • Buzz votes are added to User Profiles, allowing others to see what you Buzzed Up or Down, and other stats like, which stories were first buzzed by you or how many comments you have posted
  • Users can now also buzz up and down the comments, similar to Digg
