Yoono, a user powered suggestion community, will make it easy for its users to make more suggestions via the browser next week when it launches the "Buzz It" plugin. Yoono already offers browsing suggestions as you are visiting various web locations. The new browser applet will enable users to bookmark or clip interesting links, images, videos and photos from any web site and share them with others or publish them to a blog or MySpace page. "Buzz It" items are saved to a user's Buzzlog which can then be made public or kept private.
Yoono currently reports 600,000 users in its community and "Buzz It" offers them an easier way to share and annotate rich-media content right from the browser. For example, the screen-shot above shows clipping a YouTube video. In observing a demo of Yoono "Buzz It" from CEO Pascall Josselin I was impressed by number of features that Yoono offered. I also took note of Yoono's social aspects which could easily turn into a new social network for meeting people with the same clipping and browsing preferences. Yoono a dating site? Not really, but like any social networking site you can befriend new people through your interactions with the product. As Pascall puts it:
“Yoono is a people aggregator, allowing everyone to capture and share personalized booklets of content along with their views, perspective and highlights...And, not only is It available from any browser, exportable to the PC, or sharable with others through RSS or email, data can also be printed, saved to the desktop, and published across their portfolio of online profiles, blogs, and networks.”
I think that pretty much sums it up as feature-rich Yoono packs a lot of punch. If you give Yoono a try, it is guaranteed to let you know what it does know in the form of recommendations and suggestions.
