Linking to Facebook

You know you can share updates with your Yahoo! friends, but did you know that you can also share Yahoo! updates with your Facebook friends? Link to your Facebook account and when you post ratings, photos, article comments, and more on Yahoo!, your friends will learn about these activities on your Facebook page. And when your friends post updates in Facebook, you’ll automatically see them right on your Mail What’s New page.


Here’s How

  1. On your What’s New page in Mail, click the status box.

    Click the status box.

    The area below the box opens to let you choose how you’d like to share your status.

  2. Click the Add Facebook link.

    Click the Add Facebook link.

    A separate window opens in which you create your link to Facebook.

  3. Provide your Facebook sign-in information, then click the Connect button.

    Provide your Facebook signin information, then click the Connect button.Enlarge

    The next page lets you know that the link has been established.

  4. Click the Continue button to complete the process and to begin sharing your updates between Yahoo! and Facebook.

    Click the Continue button.

    Note: If you aren’t ready to share updates, uncheck the box next to Share updates and other public activity....

    Uncheck the box if you don’t want to share updates.

    You’re now ready to share updates.


What’s Next

Clicking the Add Facebook option creates a link between Yahoo! and Facebook. You can decide when you want to share updates with Facebook and when you want to turn them off. Either way the link remains until you remove it.
