Read/Write Web points to some interesting data from Comscore showing that Yahoo! Buzz is surpassing Digg in traffic, engagement, and also has a more balanced demographic.
First, I’d say to never trust just one statistics service, but it is safe to say that it looks like Yahoo! Buzz is a winner thus far in it’s growth and shows what Yahoo! can do with it’s audience when they execute something well. Buzz is probably far from Digg in being a known brand in the “social news” space, but does that matter if you’re introducing social news to the rest of the internet beyond the technology elite?
