New Yfrog wants to take over social sharing

Yfrog.com wants to go beyond being a site for sharing photos and hosting comments as today it launches a brand new version in beta. Yfrog now has a much more streamlined profile and is showing signs of a next generation Friendfeed (which is being awaited since Friendfeed has faded and Cliqset has shut down.

You can also still upload photos and videos to Twitter but now using a new short URL, http://for.gy/.

Yfrog is second in photo sharing to Twitpic but the hole Imageshack Yfrog network is about twice the size. Previews below.
