Yahoo! launches new contributors’ network

15 Nov 2010

Yahoo! has announced the launch of its new platform that allows people to publish their creative content on their website.

The web giant says the Yahoo! Contributor Network is an “evolution of the Associated Content platform” and will bring contributions from more than 400,000 writers, photographers and videographers.

Yahoo! will be hoping its news, finance, sports and homepage will benefit from the new network.

Retooling the platform

“In less than six months since the acquisition of Associated Content, we’ve completely retooled the platform in order to bring the people’s voice to Yahoo!,” said Carol Bartz, CEO, Yahoo!

“Bringing this authentic perspective to Yahoo!’s most popular sites will deepen our engagement with the millions of people who visit us every day and provide new opportunities for creative contributors who participate in the Yahoo! experience,” she said.
