“More and more, people rely on social sites to share and discover information that matters to them, making Yahoo uniquely positioned to provide people with all of the mainstream methods of content discovery – social, search, communications, and editorial,” Cody Simms, senior director, Social Platforms and Developer Network, Yahoo, has said. “Starting with Facebook, we are bringing all of these elements together to give people one simple, trusted place to share information and connect. We think this offers great benefit to people across the web, and it’s key to helping Yahoo extend our reach and increase engagement.”

Yahoo has also renamed Yahoo Profiles as Yahoo Pulse “to better reflect its broader ability to manage Yahoo settings, privacy and account links”. Launched in October 2008, Yahoo Profiles allows people to manage their identity and activities across Yahoo from a central location. According to the company, Yahoo has refreshed the experience to make its privacy settings easier to use and to give people a central dashboard to manage what they share on Yahoo from the external social accounts and apps that they have linked to Yahoo.
