Yahoo introduces the beta version of its new social networking site called, Mash.

At the official Mash blog, Will Aldrich informs that Mash is easy to use but with a twist. Some of its features are:

  1. "You can make starter profiles for your friends. Think: “first round’s on me.”
  2. You can leave your profile open to contributions by trusted friends.
  3. You can customize your — or your friend’s icon smile Yahoo! Launches Social Mash; Includes Feature To Edit Friends Profile — profile with modules from a growing gallery of apps."

He also adds, "Mash is still pretty raw — there are bugs and we haven’t gotten to several of the features it really should have. We need to hear from you about where to focus our efforts."

Back in July this year, Michael Arrington informed about mash, which he then called “Mosh”. Now, Michael Arrington again has first hand information about Mash with screenshots and all.

Some interestign points he noted include:

  • "Users are encouraged to edit each other’s pages.
  • You can load a set of modules onto your profile page and move them around drag-and-drop style. The modules include Flickr RSS,
  • Ego Boost, Common Friends, MyMoshLog2, Blog Module (RSS 2.0), Asteroids, Astrology, PimpMyPet, Hover, Kaleidescope, Guestbook, and My Stuff.
  • profile pages appear to have a pretty consistent structural layout (like Facebook), users can customize the design of their pages by changing colors and inserting background images (like MySpace).
  • Mash also has something called Pulse, which is very similar to Facebook’s news feed. The Pulse page shows “updates from your friends” that are basically Twitter-like messages reporting all of your friends’ activity on Mash."
