Yahoo inks deal with Facebook

by Darren Allan

Yahoo has done a deal with Facebook to link updates for users who belong to both communities.

This means that when you’re checking into your Yahoo email account, you will get updates from your Facebook friends sent through.

You’ll be able to write comments yourself on the Yahoo page, which will be relayed directly to Facebook.

Although it’ll be necessary to link your Yahoo account up to your Facebook first.

A simple filter system is being implemented for those who don’t want to see all that Facebook stuff popping up under Yahoo updates.

On the Yahoo Mail blog, a spokesperson commented: “So there you have it – one-stop updates from across Yahoo and Facebook, right on Yahoo Mail, with more to come across the broader Yahoo network soon.”

“We hope this feature helps you easily stay in touch with the people who matter most to you. Please let us know what you think!”

Yahoo is attempting to push itself forward in the face of opposition not just from the mighty Google, but also Microsoft’s Bing project.
