Buzz, Yahoo’s effort to annihilate Digg and AOL’s Propeller has finally upened up the the public. Untill now content could only be added from sites that used Yahoo Publisher Network ads, allowing Yahoo to test the waters and filter out smaller spam sites easily.
Unfortunately for Buzz it’s hardly compairable to Digg or Propeller due to Yahoo’s persistance to add editorial discretion to reduce gaming, but the rush of server downing traffic caused when Yahoo publishes the stories to their homepage more than makes up for the extra trouble of making your story popular.
You can submit news stories to Yahoo! Buzz here.

After the Duhh blog relocated to our new domain (duhhblog.wordpress.com) I’ve gone through the process of changing the address on Technorati and updating everything to reflect this change.
But when I submitted the new domain to Blogcatalog, Duhh was rejected as spam:
The URL you submitted is solely for commercial purposes, or is suspected to be spam.
The Duhh blog obviously isn’t spam, there are no ads or referral links, I added all the proper links and everything should be the way it should be, so I resubmitted thinking it was just a mistake, but I was rejected again.
So what now? Screw you Blogcatalog, I’ll no longer support Blogcatalog, they been degrading in service in the past months and it’s impossible to get a reply from any of the admins so I’m not even going to try. Anyone wanna hook up at MyBlogLog?

The Duhh blog is gearing down and I’m ready to bring you more Social Media content. In the past there has been some question as to the topic of Duhh due to the types of posts I’ve added in the past. That is about to change.
The Duhh blog has always been about Social Bookmarking news and tips and it always will, but in the past I’ve deviated to get content on the site.
In the next week you’ll see Duhh gear down and start getting back on topic, Duhh is now monitoring news from all our supported Social Bookmarking sites (Except Newsvine, Slash dot, Blogsvine, Dzone and Sphinn who seam to lack blogs, if we’re wrong leave us a comment with the url) so we can bring you the latest social bookmarking news.
Duhh will also be removing posts that aren’t on topic to make room for better and more to the point posts.
Enjoy reading through are current posts now and get ready to say goodbye to the Duhh spam.

When the new ajax comment system on Digg was announced everyone was excited about the changes. But when they were released people got pissed off fast, the comments had to be expanded if they weren’t the first in a row and it took forever to load.
Now according to the Digg Blog the comment system on Digg has been once again revamped, and it’s better than ever.
Things I Like:
Comment replies load faster
Am able to see diggs/buries for comments by clicking number of Diggs
Easy to expand threads
Easier to reply
Things I Don’t Like:
Only shows 50 posts per page
Clicking tabs other than comments still loads information on a new page
So what do you think?

Thats right, this blog is run on WordPress.com (I’m cheap, I know) but that can’t stop me from making a WordPress plugin. The unofficial version of Sociable provided by Duhh has been updated with new better images, all no-follow and now with Design Float, Blogsvine, Pownce, FriendFeed and Health Ranker. So what are you waiting for? Update your version of Sociable today to 3.1.3.
See the Sociable Page.
