Yahoo Answers Gets Friendly

Earlier this week, Yahoo launched a beta of the new Answers Network, which adds some social networking features to its Yahoo Answers product. It’s yet another example of Yahoo’s moves to integrate social media tools throughout its network, as it has with Flickr, del.icio.us, and MyBlogLog.

Basically, users can choose to build a network of contacts on Yahoo Answers, so that content from people you find most helpful will appear higher on your page. The features are similar to what Eurkester announced last month, but has not yet implemented.
