Yahoo’s doing what it can to rewire itself as a social platform. The company has made acquisitions in the space and struck deals with Twitter, Zynga and Facebook. Now, it’s going a step farther with the world’s biggest social network, announcing an integration that will port people’s activities on Yahoo’s sites to their Facebook profiles.
Additionally, Yahoo has announced plans to roll out a new privacy dashboard to give users simplified controls over how much of their information is collected and used. CIO Update has the details.
As it continues to layer new social features onto its Web properties, Yahoo is expanding its partnership with Facebook to sync up the two services.
Under the new arrangement, users will be able to couple their Yahoo (NASDAQ: YHOO) and Facebook accounts so they can access their news feed, mail and other information from the popular social networking site on Yahoo’s home page, Webmail service and other properties.
