If Microsoft no longer has a walled garden….

The past week has seen both Dell and Yahoo launch Digg like services, and now Microsoft gets in on the act. With Netscape already in, it shows the big boys/girls are in on the social news party. Interestingly the MSN version lets users submit stories from any sites blowing apart the walled garden approach.

If Microsoft are no longer trying to keep you in their (evil) empire, its a good bet that no one should. It also shows that companies with communities (hint: if you work at a newspaper that means you) should try to get them to create a social news site.

Communities of people like you and people you like (from henceforth, plypyl) want to help, find ways to let them. (via TechCrunch).
