Yahoo has been the first website that people see when they open up their browsers for some time, but the new Yahoo Newsroom app is the Internet company's first foray into the field of social media. Billed as "Reddit for the masses" by Yahoo's senior vice president of publishing products, the app gets people in conversation with one another around topical issues in a variety of fields.

Each of the topics in Yahoo Newsroom is called a 'Vibe,' and users can select which Vibes they want to show up on their feeds. Similar to other news aggregators like Flipboard, Yahoo Newsroom presents these Vibes in a graphical layout that users can tap through to read about and engage in conversation.

Yahoo Newsroom also learns from past interactions, tailoring content that users will find most interesting.
