Yahoo adds Facebook status updates to Mail
Facebook users will be able to update their status from their Yahoo Mail in-box, another small improvement from Yahoo in hopes of improving its social-media standing.
Yahoo continues to inject social networking into its services.
Starting later on Monday, Yahoo Mail users will be able to update their Facebook status from their Yahoo Mail in-box. Facebook users will be able to log into their accounts right from the Yahoo Mail home page and will also be able to click through to the Facebook profiles of friends when they receive e-mail from friends who have linked their two accounts.
It's a small but interesting update to Yahoo Mail, which is the most widely used Web e-mail service in the world,from last year. to think of it as a social-networking service unto itself, but there's no real competing with Facebook for that kind of attention.
Still,, and promised Monday to unveil new features throughout the year.
