Last year marked the first time Yahoo's earnings have dropped from the previous year, profit fell 12 percent to $660 million even though advertisers spent more than ever on the Internet, but bulk of that additional ad revenue has been gushing to Google Inc., a company that was smaller than Yahoo just three years ago.

Buzz, the YAHOO! version of Digg and other social voting sites that uncovers the most relevant and timely content from websites across the Internet. YAHOO! pull in the hottest stories and videos (and more) from a broad assortment of Web publishers during the day, and YAHOO! give you the chance to be an editor by voting content, which is called buzzing, up and down (either on Yahoo! Buzz, or on its publisher partner websites).
