The popular web portal Yahoo! has announced its new Facebook integrated Yahoo mail. In the earlier integration which occurred in last December, Facebook users could access features like, sending mail to the Facebook friends and updating the status. But this time you would be able to access a lot more, such as view, comment and like your Facebook posts directly from Yahoo! mail. You can also view the thumbnail of your friend’s profile picture within Yahoo! emails. You can go to that person’s Facebook profile directly by clicking on that picture. Not only that, you can have your live Facebook news feed as well. Along with your friends’ activities on Yahoo!, Twitter, flicker and so on, their Facebook activities will also appear in your update section. So it is more like Yahoo! is offering your all favorites in one place.

To use this feature, users have to link their Yahoo and Facebook account. It can be done easily by clicking “add to Facebook” in the status section of Yahoo mail.

By default, you will see both Yahoo and Facebook updates together, but you can edit according to your own choice, like- All updates, only Yahoo!, only Facebook. So you do not need to be worried about receiving all updates in the same place.

Initially this feature rolled out in the English speaking countries, including UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. It has already started its integrated service in other countries from April.

One important thing is not yet done and that is mobile integration. Yahoo! team is working on it so that they can provide you this facility as soon as possible.

On a blog post Yahoo said, integrating Facebook with the yahoo mail is just the start of what the company plans to add to Yahoo Mail. Yahoo is always being praised for introducing appealing online services, Facebook integration is just a new addition to it.  IT Support
