What Is Yahoo! Contacts?

Yahoo! Contacts is more than an online contact manager. Yes, it helps you organise contact information; all address books do that. With Yahoo! Contacts, you also have a number of communication options including sending an email, text message, and instant message while viewing a person’s contact details. You can even group contacts into categories and email the entire group. You can keep up to date with the people that matter most to you by receiving Updates each time they change their contact information.

Through Yahoo! Updates, you learn of your friends contact changes and they learn of yours. All you have to do is connect with one another to start receiving Updates.

Because Yahoo! Contacts is online, you can access it with an Internet connection from anywhere in the world. More importantly, because it’s part of your Yahoo! account, you can use the contact information in other Yahoo! services, such as Yahoo! Mail Classic and Yahoo! Pulse. Keep it up to date, and you’ll easily stay in touch with your friends
