Yahoo announces My Web 2.0

Making searching personal

Yahoo has today announced the release of My Web 2.0, a service aimed to enable users to create their own personal internet archive which they can then access from any computer.

In addition to this, users will be able to selectively share their personalised content with friends and other members of the My Web 2.0 community. My Web 2.0 is what Yahoo refers to as a 'personal and social search engine' and is an updated version of the previous My Web service it offered to users.

By saving their search results and history, as well as bookmarks, users can create a personal archive to My Web 2.0. This can then be called up on any PC or laptop with an internet connection, and the personalised content can be cached and is fully searchable.

My Web 2.0 users searching the internet will also be guided to content other users have saved that are pertinent to the topic. Yahoo says this will provide an 'even more relevant search experience'.

Salim Mitha, director of Yahoo Search UK, said "The internet is becoming more community-orientated and users want access to trusted information. We see social search as the next phase of web search."

My Web 2.0 is available from today and is free of charge.
