upyerBrum.com is a social news site, that allows users to vote on stories and links collected from across the internet. The front page shows popular stories as well as content tagged “upyerbrum” across the web for users to vote upon. It interrogates Flickr, YouTube, Technorati and del.icio.us APIs to do so – pulling out relevant titles and descriptions of each item of content as well as thumbnails for the photographs and video.

For upyerBrum I have developed a Facebook Application that places top stories in people’s profiles – this is a quite tricky area due to some quite restrictive cache issues in the Facebook API, but I’m pleased to say it works well.
