Yahoo Releases Profile Feature

Oct 21, 2008

Yahoo launched a unified profile feature that lets users access their various social media personas across the web. The profile feature is part of the company's "open" strategy which gives developers and other third parties access to a number of Yahoo platforms through a set of APIs. Users of Yahoo Messenger 9.0 have already seen some of the profile integrations-- the IM client pulls in their friends' Twitter, Yahoo Buzz, and Mybloglog updates.
