Yahoo! has recently launched Meme, "where you share everything you find that's interesting". Meme is, in simple English, a micro-blogging service with some more features that Twitter lacks, at least as of now. The service is in alpha stage. You can leave your email address at the homepage for an invite. Alternately, you can send me your email address (or leave a comment with your email) in case you don't want to wait.
The idea is simple: you follow other Meme users, repost their posts, share your own links, videos — much like Tumblr.
In short, Yahoo Meme is yet another microblogging service with few more things to offer. It's Twitter plus Tumblr plus a little bit of Facebook. A bookmarklet to share links would have been better. Also, a chat bot would find many takers. Maybe all these will come in a few days. Keep your fingers crossed.
