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.
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?
It would be great if you add support for sharing posts directly to Twitter, Digg, Stumbleupon and others sharing services for Wordprss
Greetings from México :)
Would love to try this. Thanks, guys! ^_^
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.
This is fantastic. Thanks. You’re the best!
I’m a lover of Yahoo services. Thanks so much for this integration with Yahoo!
I also like Yahoo and dislike Google’s monopoly.
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!
Can we expect a feed on Yahoo! meme?
WordPress always updates all time.

Just wanted to say I’m a reformed LiveJournal user.. haha. I love WordPress, it’s simple, to the point without a lot of clutter and garbage, thanks guys. Liking the integration with Yahoo too. ^-^
I appreciate all of the great features that the wordpress team is sending my way. Thanks folks.
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!
i’ll try it, WP… !!! ^_^
done … already in my yahoo ..
This is neat .. might come in handy !
Tried it. And love it! Thanks guys!

I am relatively new to word-press and blogging. Its just great to find new features everyday.
Word-press Rocks !! You guys are great ..
I just wish there were more themes .. :)
Great and good to sense that WordPress is on a non-stop innovative mode to add more value and tools to enhance the access to WordPress on a global scale. Yaa–Hooo!
Sounds great :) Question…do you need to have loads of friends on there for everyone to see it? Only since facebook I don’t really bother with email contacts any more…
what about windows live?
WOW of the Week! Twitter is a #1 referer and this is yahoo’s chance to catch up! Thanks WP

Not bad but how about a decent social bookmarklet integration. I am getting tired of posting these at the end of each article.
Waiting for Twitter and facebook!
