Yahoo buys social media data start up, Vizify

It was announced today that Yahoo bought Vizify, a start up that allows users to create a personal bio by pulling information from social media sites. It is not clear how Yahoo will be using Vizify, but apparently in some way to let users “create info graphics and videos out of social data” –

The company’s technology lets people create interactive infographics and videos based on data involving what they share online, creating a type of Internet biography. Premium customers could pay to have their biographies hosted from vanity domains.

I found this picture on Vizify’s Twitter page and it reminds me of some of the relationship models we saw in class on Tuesday.
