Yahoo has launched a new public voting system on their Suggestion Boards which lets users contribute, comment and vote on feedback given by Yahoo users on different Yahoo Channels.
Yahoo Suggestion Boards is a smart way for Yahoo to gather and prioritize user feedback from their half a billion registered members.
Yahoo employees monitor the discussions, and respond to suggestions or prompt members for extra feedback within the Boards’ comments.
Yahoo also uses a Digg-style voting system to let users vote on their favorite suggestions; “Digg-style voting means we can quickly discover what’s most important to users. In addition to reading feedback from other users, you’ll find responses from Yahoo! employees about the issues.
