The future of Yahoo News

Gavin O'Malley reports on some announcements by Yahoo News GM Neil Budde on the future of Yahoo News.

When discussing several planned upgrades to Yahoo News, Neil said that Yahoo News "will eventually have access to personalized news pages, on which stories are updated based on the viewer's recent viewing habits." It sounds like Yahoo will be doing implicit personalization of news based on reader behavior in addition to the explicit customization that is already part of My Yahoo.

Neil also said "community edited" news would be "the next wave" for Yahoo News.

Well lets see if they can pull it off. Yahoo has a great bunch of guys but their recent track record with new products from in-house isn't that great.
