Mash: Yahoo 361?

I am unable to work up much enthusiasm for new social networks. This includes Yahoo’s Mash. There’s a rather dutiful post about Mash, and invites to its beta, at TechCrunch. Similar posts will doubtless appear at similar blogs.

Mash has its own blog (which runs on WordPress). In the opening post, Will Aldrich emphasizes that You can make starter profiles for your friends. Think: “first round’s on me.”

Well, if someone does get the first round/iteration of my profile, I guess I’ll get Mashing. But I’m not going to chase an invite, since my first impression of Mash is that it’s Yahoo’s attempt to catch up with Facebook and to replace Yahoo 360. I’ve seen no word on whether the latter will be shut down.
