Yahoo Mash Beta – New Social Networking Platform

I’ve updated my Yahoo mash profile page a bit over the weekend and with the help of a few friends. Note: if you have some mischievous friends, you may want to turn off their ability to edit or “mash” your profile page or it might start sporting another company’s logo as your background image, as was the case on my profile for a few hours on Saturday.

Mash is very easy to use with drag and drop modules ala Facebook but with the unique feature of allowing others to add and/or modify modules or even visual settings, depending on the sharing settings. You get a short URL, mash.yahoo.com/leeodden is mine, for example, but you need to be logged in to Yahoo and have a mash account to see the content.

I’ve seen a few ads and initially, I thought they were rather large, but they do flow well with the rest of the page regardless of your visual or layout settings. As people build out more and more modules, not unlike what’s happening at Facebook, there should be more productive networking tools like group management and calendar related features. Yahoo’s other social networking project, Y360 pretty much tanked, so there will need to be more than just “fun” applications, especially with the huge head start MySpace and Facebook have. One ace in the hole for Yahoo is it’s huge list of registered users.

After the flurry of the initial launch, many eyes will be watching to see how Yahoo mash pans out. Thanks to Michael Brito for the invite.

Here’s a screen shot of my new Yahoo mash beta account. By the time someone reads this there will be a LOT more “friends” listed.

More later as it’s late night on Friday and I need sleep. In the meantime, Techcrunch has a write up.

  1. Hi,
    nice screenshot! Could you send me an invitation too, please!
    I am so curios, but also want to meet new friends.
    my e-mail address is [email protected]
    thank you!

  2. This yahoo Mash seem like more similar to Google Orkut now(from the screen shot). I would like to try on it too, so i can do a comparison on it. Can someone send me an invitation, please! My email address is [email protected]. Thank in Advance!

  3. Awesome! I would love to get an invite too!

  4. This looks great, could someone please send me an invitation? My email is: [email protected]

  5. Sounds interesting. Send me an invite?
    [email protected]

  6. After playing with it for a little while, I have to agree that it’s a nice application, but something doesn’t feel right about it to me.

    It’s fun, sure. It’s cute, sure. But finding friends seems unintuitive. For instance, the only way to search (and I use that term loosely) for friends is through their tag system.

    you may want to turn off their ability to edit or “mash” your profile page or it might start sporting another company’s logo…

    That’s something else that makes me wonder, will the changes made by other people be visible to everyone else or only to the person who mashed the page? In case it is visible to everyone else, what happens when two people are mashing the page at the same time?

    Time for more Red Bull.

  7. Please also send an invite to mash (at) assist.com

    It may even be worth a few hundred links to your blog from our Social Networking Directory 🙂

    Thanks!

  8. You guys should review MindViz.com – it’s been around longer than these new sites and has some of these so called middle of the road features.. I hate to see a site like Mash get the props for being a middle of the road Facebook / MySpace when MindViz has had such an all encompasing angle to social networking since it began. Unfortunately MindViz isn’t some big corp with tons of marketing power so I guess you wouldn’t see it reviewed much, which is rather sad since it is such a quality product.

    What happens when you don`t know anyone?
