Update: I’ve got a basic page up at Mash but you’ll need a (free) Mash account to access in this new social network. Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you need an invite.
Scott’s annoyed that Mash is treating him like a … kid.

Yahoo’s in the process of developing a new social networking space and it looks promising. I’ll hope to be on it within a day or so to check out the features. Yahoo is a little late to the party after failing to aquire Facebook, but I’m sure the Yahoo teams have come up with a great social application. After all, Yahoo’s been doing a lot of the best Web 2.0 work for some time and it’s about time they leveraged all the visitors to Yahoo properties into a social networking system.
The major challenge here is that many people, certainly me included, are suffering from sort of “social networking fatigue” from trying to follow and participate and understand even a handful of the many social applications out there. Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, LinkedIn, Flickr,MyBlogLog, StumbleUpon, etc are all important places and offer the ability to interact with folks but there is only so much time in a day, even for those of us who spend a lot of time online.
I’ll write more about this after I get … Mashed.
hmm – comments seem to be having problems. Maybe the TechCrunch coverage overload killed the form?
