Yahoo Buys Me.me Domain Name

Yahoo Meme


Paid Content reports that Yahoo has registered the me.me domain name. Yahoo is presumably going to use the domain for its Twitter competitor called Yahoo Meme. There is a cute little dog image on the Yahoo Meme creation page.

Yahoo Meme lets users create short entries called "memes." Users can also follow memes created by others.

One downside with Yahoo Meme is it appears you have to create a Yahoo account to register. Not everyone wants their accounts all wrapped together. It is much easier to create a Twitter account right now because it is only tied to an email address.
