Yahoo News, one of the most popular news portals on the web, is deepening its integration with Facebook. Yahoo has formed integrations with the social network in the past with its products, but we’re told this is one of the most in-depth implementations to date. That’s because Yahoo is working with Facebook’s open graph to integrate your friends’ activity into your Yahoo News experience.
The new Yahoo News friends’ activity feature lets people discover and connect around the news and information they are enjoying on Yahoo through updates on Facebook. Once Facebook users opt-in to sharing conte, you’ll be able to see your Facebook friends’ on Yahoo News and the recent articles they’ve read. People’s activity will also be featured back on their Facebook profile as it happens.
