Yahoo Updates Social Profiles, Adds Local SearchMonkey Apps to Default

by , Comments

Seems Google wasn't the only one with some updates to release at the end of this week. Yahoo gets in on the action by updating social profiles and setting some SearchMonkey apps for local content to default.

First up, Yahoo profiles are going universal. In other words, you can manage your Yahoo profile from various Yahoo properties. The goal is to eventually be able to manage your profile from non-Yahoo sites embracing OpenSocial.

It will be nice when that happens, because I much prefer Yahoo's minimalistic and easy-to-use profile than most social networks:

Meanwhile, Citysearch and Zagat are having their SearchMonkey apps set to default. That means all users will see their uniquely coded results (when relevant, of course) during Yahoo searches. Here's how the Citysearch one will look:

In August, Yahoo set Yelp, LinkedIn and Yahoo Local apps to default.
