Publicize: Yahoo! Updates

You can now send your WordPress.com posts to your Yahoo! Profile via the Yahoo! Updates service.

Yahoo! Update

Check out that cute WordPress icon!

The feature can be enabled from your Dashboard → My Blogs admin page. Once you enable it, you’ll be directed through an authorization procedure to confirm that you want to connect your WordPress.com blog and your Yahoo! account.

These connections are per blog and per user, so those of you with several blogs can choose which ones to connect, and those of you with multiple authors on one blog can each hook up your Yahoo! accounts separately.

More details can be found on the Publicize support page.

Yahoo! Updates is the prestigious first of a series of Publicize features we’ll be launching or highlighting over the coming months.

  3. creeping

    yahoo profile? hmm last I heard some service called twitter was just a bit more popular…is a twitter feed available yet? when it is don’t force us to use bit.ly please

    Automated Twitter posts get virtually no response. I hand-craft mine, and Twitter is now my #2 referrer. #1 some days. Remember, you’re writing a tease, a headline, trying to draw people to your blog. And your competition is the entire rest of the world. Make it good.

    Now, I’m not sure I want to synch up my Yahoo ID with my WordPress ID. I’ll have to double-check that. Is it tied via email ID, or some other service?

    @ Matt
    It would be great if you add support for sharing posts directly to Twitter, Digg, Stumbleupon and others sharing services for Wordprss

    Thanks for the support Matt, and congrats on the integration. We hope WordPress publishers will find they’re reaching meaningful audiences on Yahoo! and look forward to seeing where Publicize goes next.

    you guys ROCK!!! since lots of Vietnamese users use Y!Messenger, it’s awesome to be able to show WP updates via Y!Updates service. i personally don’t need this feature, but it will sure get you guys more users from Vietnam. ;) i<3 WP!

  46. Justin

    I appreciate all of the great features that the wordpress team is sending my way. Thanks folks.

  47. hoh

    yahoo is infamous for reported some chinese users to authorities last year
    boycott the bastards
    i thought wordpress stood for freedom of expression/speech
    by associating with yahoo and also google now [who have complied with chinese requirements to operate in china]
    no one is safe now in china to say what they want and yahoo and google will report them to the chinese authorities
    and i don’t expect this comment will see the light of day either!
    censurship rules NOT OK!

    • mdawaffe

      WordPress.com is in the business of promoting expression, not limiting it. We try to give our bloggers a variety of tools to help them express their ideas. This new feature is totally opt in, so your boycott shouldn’t be affected.

      If you have something important to say to the world, keep on blogging!

  48. faithfabian

    i’ll try it, WP… !!! ^_^
