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

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.

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!
