Yahoo Set to Release Yahoo Pulse

Is Yahoo's Latest Update Competing With Google Buzz?

According to sources, Yahoo is poised to announce a new way to view Facebook content on its websites. The service will allow users to post their actions from Yahoo sites like Flickr onto their Facebook page and have their Facebook newsfeed delivered to their homepage or email, among other features to better integrate the social networking site with Yahoo's content.

Additionally, the company plans to rename Yahoo Profile pages — pages allowing users to create profiles managing their online identity and activities — to Yahoo Pulse, while adding additional privacy controls. Sources close to Yahoo say these changes will be rolled out over the next few days. Is this Yahoo's answer to Google's Buzz? Or is it just another way for users to share Facebook content they find relevant or interesting — similar to Facebook's "Like" button?
